View Full Version : [ubuntu_studio] Installing on already encrypted lvm with alternate installer

I'd like to install Ubuntu Studio's root on an LVM partion that is already encrypted.

All the approaches to installing without a clean install involve using the live cd. But Ubuntu Studio has no live cd.

I currently run Sidux and Ubuntu encrypted, and I'd like to replace Sidux with Ubuntu Studio, sharing the encrypted home between Ubuntu and Ubuntu Studio.

How can I open an encrypted LVM partition using the alternate installer? I seem to be only able to wipe my LVM partition clean and start over, I can't seem to open it with the alternate installer.

Is this true?
