View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Lucid Lynx in a LUKS Container

May 8th, 2010, 11:49 PM
I am not an expert. I'm in way over my head. Unfortunately, that is the only way I can learn. All my data is backed up securely, so I'm not worried about breaking anything. In the past, I have had various multi-boot systems, but recently I became convinced of the need to fully encrypt my system. I found a tutorial on how to arrange grub and the TrueCrypt boot-loaders to work for this. My problem, is simply that I have never used the alternate install CD, and I don't know how to create my Ubuntu installation inside of a LUKS volume. Can anyone point me to an idiot friendly tutorial on the topic? It would be greatly appreciated.

So basically, ignore the whole multiboot thing. All I want to do is know how to manually partition an encrypted Ubuntu install.
