  1. [all variants] Re: /boot on USB - One USB for Multiple Machines? - Possible?

    This discussion is continuing, here:

  2. [all variants] Re: /boot on USB - One USB for Multiple Machines? - Possible?

    Again, I'm being a bit thick. The LUKS header has the UUID of the disk in it. If my cryptab identifies the disk by UUID, then choosing the wrong menu entry will end up with an initramfs that...
  3. [all variants] Re: /boot on USB - One USB for Multiple Machines? - Possible?

    *What I need to do here is in the initramfs, somehow add a check that I am looking at the right machine. Since I'm going to be unlocking a LUKS crypt, if the password is different then I'm fine since...
  4. [all variants] Re: /boot on USB - One USB for Multiple Machines? - Possible?

    This doesn't appear to be the case. Grub can install the images in any directory, using the --boot-directory option.


    Fine.


    I don't see this. Why?


    Ok, here's something else I'm not...
  5. [all variants] Re: /boot on USB - One USB for Multiple Machines? - Possible?

    @OldFred. Regarding your first response. I see you've taken this from an askubuntu question, but this doesn't get to my question. (And notice that --root-directory is an old option. It's now...
  6. [all variants] Re: /boot on USB - One USB for Multiple Machines? - Possible?

    Thanks guys, but I don't think you're getting to the issue, here. I'm going to propose an approach which might work. Let's just consider two installations with one USB stick.


    (1) USB is...
  7. [all variants] Re: /boot on USB - One USB for Multiple Machines? - Possible?

    Ok, @OldFred - Thanks for your input. Will have to study in detail tomorrow, but one question.


    Does this present any difficulty if the system is encrypted (as they all will be)? We can just...
  8. [all variants] Re: /boot on USB - One USB for Multiple Machines? - Possible?

    Thanks, Ian. You're saying there's no way to set this up so that it works with grub menu entries pointing to the various kernels/initramfs's, and grouped by machine?

    Alternatively, is there some...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: 14.04: Prepared Disk (LVM/LUKS/LVM), Installed. Reboots to BusyBox; Chroot Fix Fa

    I'm trying to build a RAID system now, but I'm unclear on which modules I'll need for that. I'm finding different lists, dm_mirror, dm_raid and dm_region_hash; or maybe just dm_raid and raid1. Can...
  10. [all variants] /boot on USB - One USB for Multiple Machines? - Possible?

    Hi all. I'm trying to build a few machines, each of which I would like to have /boot on a USB stick. I am wondering if it's possible to use a single USB for multiple machines? I have seen...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: 14.04: Prepared Disk (LVM/LUKS/LVM), Installed. Reboots to BusyBox; Chroot Fix Fa

    For anyone else who's looking at this, I'll add that there is one grub error that appears, but I can still boot with no problem:

  12. [SOLVED] Re: 14.04: Prepared Disk (LVM/LUKS/LVM), Installed. Reboots to BusyBox; Chroot Fix Fa

    It works!! Didn't need to run update-grub at all. Only update-initramfs, as you said. Only (stupid) error, caused by the fact that's is been so long since I looked at that partially installed...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: 14.04: Prepared Disk (LVM/LUKS/LVM), Installed. Reboots to BusyBox; Chroot Fix Fa

    Dude, I'm gonna try it. I thought it had something to do with BtrFS and had found long, tedious explanations of how to mix LUKS & BtrFS in a root volume. So, (for the moment) I had given up on the...

    [ubuntu] Re: access to HFS+

    I'm interested in this myself, if anyone's had any experience.

    Also, I'm not clear on the status of hfsprogs regarding >2TB disks and journaling for hfs+ volumes. Does anyone know?
  16. [SOLVED] 14.04: Prepared Disk (LVM/LUKS/LVM), Installed. Reboots to BusyBox; Chroot Fix Fails.

    Hey all - I prepared my disk & did an install of 14.04, but it fails on reboot @busybox. I tried repairs using chroot, but that fails at grub-probe. I'd be grateful for help on either step.

  20. [ubuntu] Catch-22 while installing a patched rsync.

    I'm installing a patched rsync, to get --copy-devices & --write-devices to work. I don't want to "make install" over the ubuntu's rsync as I'm afraid I'll break something. (Likely, as the "make...

    Capacity: 120G. Drive is empty (other than that 65G file). Filesystem is ext4 with default settings (5% for journal). So, there should be enough space.

  23. [ubuntu] Re: grub-install/update-grub for a cloned system.

    @oldFred - thanks for your input. Yes, I understand that grub [edit: I mean /boot] will have to be outside of the LUKS container (on RAID).
