View Full Version : [xubuntu] 8.10 - Guided (Encrypted LVM) Partition Error

February 17th, 2009, 06:05 PM
Yikes! Not sure if I went down the wrong path here. Chose "Guided Entire Disk Encrypted LVM Partitioning", when the installer responded:

"Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/sda device or resource busy...".

Doing hd-media install (no cdrom). Did I wipe out my install folder? Any suggestions on how I can recover from this without starting over?

Solved it myself. Had to start from scratch though. I chose the wrong option on the partition screen: Guided LVM with encryption for entire drive. Though my data still appeared to be there, I could not figure out how to get to it.

Read the manual a little more carefully and viola, I partitioned multiple logical volumes (sized based on recommendations) in the ext3 file system format.
