Hello, I am really getting irritated with trying to find an answer to this one. I was putting the last touches on a DELL laptop for my sister after installing Fedora 10 Beta. I spent days getting everything the way I want it.
But now, I remembered that I chose disk encryption during setup. What I really want is to get rid of the encryption pass-phrase so that my sister doesn't have to deal with authenticating twice once in LUKS on bootup and the other in GDM. I have been reading the cryptsetup man page. I don't see a single option that would allow me to unencrypt the disk or at least have it not prompt me for a pass-phrase.
If I try to remove the current pass-phrase, it goes like this:
[root@TBox ~]# cryptsetup luksRemoveKey /dev/sda2
Enter LUKS passphrase to be deleted:
key slot 0 selected for deletion.
This is the last keyslot. Device will become unusable after purging this key.
Are you sure? (Type uppercase yes):
OK I get that but what do I do then? I really don't want to format, it would take me ages to get back here after all the packages I have installed.
