    bump for info on how to get ecryptfs setup right so that when the installer asks for user/pass it'll mount properly and work

    Re: fresh install with encrypted home partition

    GRR i knew it was a bad idea to try to continue with this but my impatience got the better of me. Installed 9.10, mounted the previous partition as /home, selected "password required to decrypt and mount" in the installer, set the username and password to what they were before and continued. Now of course for whatever reason this didnt work and just as I feared, the home directory has the .desktop file and the readme.txt and is unwritable, rendering the desktop useless FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-
    PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need to be able to use my computer!!!!
