LUKS and Crypto

Hello Friends,

i stumbled upon your Linux Distribution just today, while i was looking for a Beginner Distro for my Aunt and her Kids to use for browsing the Web and do some Word processing, Printing etc. pp. You sure get the idea. The average "have you tried to turn if off and on again" User kind.

I booted the q4os-2.7-x64.r2.iso Trinity ISO for testing on an old Toshiba NB510 Netbook from USB. I started the Desktop installer. After i realized that the Disk preparation dialog did not offer to use LUKS/Crypto i tried to do it manually but failed due some systemd (*urks*) masked services to start LVM2.

Do you plan to integrated LUKS/Cryptosetup anytime soon into the Installer dialog?   I think even if this Distro is meant to be run on older Hardware ( no AES-NI ) i believe giving the Admin / User the Option to encrypt his/her device is a _must_ in 2019.

Thanks to all the Devs and Open Source Enthusiast to make things like Q4OS happen much appreciated.

Q4OS Centaurus 3.5 (next version, not released) and its current testing ISOs ""q4os-3.5-x64-tde.r4.iso"/"q4os-3.5-x64.r4.iso" come with the Calamares installer and support Full Disk Encryption install. Unfortunately it seems to not be working at the moment. Hopefully it will be resolved soon.

Re: LUKS and Crypto

Hi there! Calamares install with full-disk encryption is now fixed on the latest ".r5" revision for the Q4OS Centaurus 3.5 ISO release.
