Hi, I can confirm that it works, my main system is fully on Luks ( To be
precise it is luks on raid1, and /home is decrypted with pam, swap with
I set up a similar system from a wheezy netinstall amd64 (2011-05-12)
ISO. I did it in expert mode (don't know if it matters), I didn't go the
"Debian way" (one lvm on luks) but I manually created luks containers
(/, swap and /home), a separate /boot, then went forward with the
installation and it worked flawlessly.
I can't explain why it doesn't work in your case, you could try to add
the required modules to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules, or check in
/etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf that you have MODULES=most and
Maybe cp the /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/cryptroot hook script to
/etc/initramfs-tools/hooks/, this shouldn't be necessary though.
Do you have a /etc/crypttab file, is it accurate ? Is the fstab too ?
Tried reinstalling cryptsetup from the chroot ?
