Hi everybody

Starting installation from live dvd, is there a way to make Toorox recognize encrypted lvm and replace the system on it.
I tried passing arguments to kernel in boot menu options, but it seems not working, still seeing my partitions as /dev/sd* - i was expecting to be read something like ****.lv or vg.

By the way Toorox is a great job. :cheer:

Thanks for your help

Hi linjay,

i've never used lvm. The installer doesn't support it by
default. But Toorox has all necessary packages installed for using it. To start the service type in as root:
/etc/init.d/lvm start
modprobe dm-crypt
Before you have to edit the config file:
mcedit /etc/lvm/lvm.conf
Then you can try to select the option "Manual partition selection" and type in the lvm partition.
Please have a look to this doc:
