    Question Encrypted LVM on multiple drives

    I want to set up encrypted LVM when I install Ubuntu. I have an SSD and an HDD and I would like to put /boot, swap and all the other mount points on the SSD but put /home on the HDD. I want to use the same passphrase for both drives. How can I achieve this?

    Note: I want to use 12.04 LTS

    12.04LTS still has the 'Alternate CD'.

    There was once an illustrated how-to on the internet about using the Alternate CD to install Ubuntu in encrypted LVM with multitple partitions (in one disk). I tried it out and I still have the installed operating system. It would be interesting to give it a try and see if it can be done across two or more disks, it should be possible. Unfortunately the web site is no longer available and I do not know of any other sites which attempt to describe the procedure at all. Nevertheless, I do have some information I can share. I will need to contact you privately about that.
