    is there a updated how to for encrypted filesystem???

    found this EncryptedFilesystemLVMHowto

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/En...systemLVMHowto
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/En...ilesystemHowto

    but they all talk about ubuntu 8 or less..

    is there a updated howto for 11 or even 12 when it comes? ??

    Moved to Security Discussions.

    You ask a great question. I do not believe the process for installing with LVM has changed. The recent 11.* versions make it much easier to create an install with an encrypted /home.
    Thank you for your contributions. "So long and thanks for the fish!"

    Re: is there a updated how to for encrypted filesystem???

    i just ordered a new computer with a 1tb drive so i figured ill duel boot with windows 7 x64 and ubuntu with ubuntu having 250 gb of space and windows having 25 gb of space and the rest shared between them

    so i am looking how how to set up linux as encrypted from boot.
    its easy as a whole drive, but no so with dual boot
    and to make it a little bit harder i have no Internet where this is being set up. so i need to do my research first.

    Do you want the entire linux partition encrypted (except for /boot), or just the /home partition? If you designate a separate /home partition, the new install disks will ask you if you want /home encrypted.

    yes i want the entire linux partition ( other than boot) encrypted.
    and i want the swap partition encrypted ( even with 8 gb of ram i dont even think i really need one but wtf i have a 1 tb of hard drive space)
    full fast and safe encryption is a big point for me for installing ubuntu.
    i honestly only use windows anymore for games..
