Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntustudio-desktop

To Reproduce:

1) On given hard drive, run Ubuntu Gutsy x86 alternate installer and partition as thus:
/boot

volume_for_encryption (default settings)
   - LVM
      - /
      -/other_mount_points

2) At first boot, Ubuntu's usplash pauses load and prompts for passphrase. Upon successful entry of passphrase, Ubuntu continues loading.

3) Install ubuntustudio-desktop, which replaces Ubuntu's usplash with Ubuntu Studio's

4) Restart. Ubuntu Studio's usplash will hang on loading, incrementing the progress bar very slowly, but never giving an opportunity to enter a passphrase for the encrypted volume.

5) Press ALT+F1. Console will report it is attempting to mount the encrypted volume, but never prompt for passphrase.

Recommend triaging for critical, as this wrecks a functional install, requiring either re-install or rescue with a separate OS (cannot be repaired in same OS as problem exists).

Not tried:
1) Repeat steps 1-3 above, then manually reset the usplash to the Ubuntu default.
2) Install with Ubuntu Studio Gutsy, and setup encrypted volumes there (not even sure if it allows for it).

This needs to be tested for Gutsy. Please let us know if it presents there.

Sorry, I wasn't clear on that. This was all in Gutsay. When I said I hadn't tried "Install with Ubuntu Studio Gutsy", I meant I had used Ubuntu Gutsy's install disc. I will edit the description to avoid further confusion.

I see Luke Yelavich re-assigned it. I wasn't sure if the issue was with some setting or implementation of ubuntustudio-desktop.

Note that:
1) I did NOT try just the usplash package.
2) I AM currently using almost every asset of ubuntu studio except the usplash. (It works fine.)

  * Update colours for usplash theme. Text such as passphrase prompting
    should now be visible. Thanks to Tonic Artos. (LP: #155130)

I just security-updated gutsy studio with an encrypted LVM and now I am running into this. Unable to boot except through rescue mode. What is the fix ?

Any progress on testing this? If this does not make any progress, I'll remove it from -proposed next week due to inactivity.
