I have a LUKS-encrypted root partition that I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 to. I have of course placed /boot on a separate ext2 partition, and my boot loader loads and functions correctly.

However, I can't seem to get my initrd to load the LUKS-encrypted root using the appropriate /dev/mapper/ address. What hooks and scripts do I need to add to get this to function correctly, and what is the correct way to regenerate my initrd?

I can CHROOT into this install, and everything works fine - but I just can't seem to get it to actually boot. Help!

Could you show your /etc/crypttab and /etc/fstab? – Teddy Apr 8 '10 at 11:28
