This is a very simple question about LUKS encryption.
My Fedora 15 system uses LUKS over the root, home and swap LVM partitions. To access these partitions from a boot cd, for example, its necessary to open LUKS with the command,
# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/<drive> <hddname>
hddname be anything? More specifically, when I look at the output of the command
lsblk -a my install has no labels.
Another tutorial listed the
cryptroot, and I've been able to open LUKS with this name. Only I get the impression this is arbitrary.
I'm having trouble with mounting an encrypted LVM partition and I'm confused about the vocabulary 'name space', so to speak, of LUKS and LVM.
