passphrase for encrypted home partition not being read
This bug is similiar to https:/
Release: Ubuntu 9.10
My /home partition is encrypted and has been since at least Jaunty and perhaps Intrepid or Hardy.
When Karmic starts up and I am prompted for the passphrase, I type it in and frequently when I hit <CR> the prompt just sits there as if it hasn't seen me hit it. If I hit CR again, it will usually see it and feed a newline, and complain that the key is incorrect, and prompt me again. Sometimes it will see the passphrase and CR correctly, and mount the partition, othertimes I enter it three times after which the mount fails and I end up having to reboot.
I *think* that every time it fails i have had to hit <CR> at least twice. I don't think that it has ever acknowledged the CR but lost some of the passphrase.
It looks like something is eating the keystrokes! I did read in one similar bug report that gdm may be running and interfering with this process.
My crypttab is:
lap1:[~] % cat /etc/crypttab
# <target name> <source device> <key file> <options>
crypt-home /dev/sda3 none luks
