[SOLVED] Installation from the live cd

Postby martvefun » 2010-07-19 20:47

Hello,

I'm trying to install debian on a encrypted partition with LUKS and LVM.
I've found a good tutorial for ubuntu (here but it's in french).

The idea is to create a sda1 partition for /boot and create a sda2 partition which is encrypted with luks ("cryptsetup -c aes-xts-plain -s 512 luksFormat /dev/sda2") and on this encrypted partition, I use LVM to divide it in several different partitions (root, swap, home,...).

I can do it all with the debian live cd but once it's done I need to install debian.
The problem is that with the basic install cd (I use netinstall), I cannot decrypt the partition for the installation (or if I can how ?)
And with the live cd, I didn't find any option to do that.

Any solution for me ?

Thank you

What is shown on the following shot, all done by the magic of the debian-installer, is not what you are asking for?

How-to install a live-CD:

The inofficial live-helper isos for squeeze got an icon on the Desktop which says <install>:

I didn't test if they really do install...

Thank you it seems to work with the first link you gave me.

Now I just have to try a bit more for the decryption on the boot :(
(I'll come back if I don't find)

no I need to do it manually because I've a multiboot (and the option you show me use the full disk)

Ok. I have recognized that it is in the <full-disk> part. I was not sure.

With the first link you mean the how-to? Or the debian-live with installer-icon?

Take a look at this post - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=48316#p277475
You can do what you want from within the debian installer, if you select Manual Partitioning.

:o I didn't know you could do that with the installer

works greate but only if debian is the first distribution you install on the encrypted partition...
