Topic: Booting partition with cryptsetup

When setting up normally, I make 3 partitions, 1 bootable for efi, 1swap and the rest for root.

Currently, I'm installing hyperbola with cryptsetup following the guide in wiki. I'm unable to understand setup of grub since there is no booting partition which I normally mount at /boot/efi.

Edit configuration in /etc/default/grub, remembering to use UUID when pointing to mbr/gpt partition. Use blkid to get list of devices with their respective UUIDs

I don't know what to edit in /etc/default/grub . Please also explain UUID pointing to gpt partition too.

When I generate grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
I also get a warning

Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to device scanning.

What does that mean. Is it problematic?

Today, the forces which make richer and poor poorer have their roots in computer security. Never has it been more important to work towards abolishing the power of the powerful.

Let's use hyperbola or other libre OSes and strive towards stateless hardware (Rutkowska 2015). Let's use GNU/Linux phones and shun Android. Let's make our data available to everyone or else absolutely no one.

Re: Booting partition with cryptsetup

Never mind. Full encryption does not work without libreboot so I made 3 partitions and set things up.

Now stuck at this problem. How to start enlightenment DE? I use xdm and I try
"exec enlightenment_start" at the end of .xinitrc

but it throws some error.

If someone managed to install enlightenment, xenocara and xdm, please help!

Depends, if you have coreboot, it may still be possible.

Try console-tdm if you want a non-dbus option. It works quite well for me.

for display I mean...

I managed to get enlightenment running. I made a very silly mistake earlier.

exec enlightenment_start in .xinitrc end lines works.

and then startx.

Nope, no coreboot. I have to use proprietary bootloader unfortunately!
