Hi all,

I just upgraded from F14 to F15 and have a problem with entering the password for the encrypted FS:
when booting with the latest entry in the bootloader:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.38.6-26.rc1.fc15.i686.PAE ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_anonymous-lv_root rd_LUKS_UUID=luks-3ef72221-1165-46a6-ab69-3932e22e9d4f rd_LVM_LV=vg_anonymous/lv_root rd_LVM_LV=vg_anonymous/lv_swap rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=de
initrd /initramfs-2.6.38.6-26.rc1.fc15.i686.PAE.img
I get the usual prompt for the password

Password for filesystem:enter passphrase for /dev/sda2:
as soon as i press any key (e.g. the first character of my password) i get the immediate response

"No key available with this passphrase"
With the old it still works fine...

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.35.13-92.fc14.i686 ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_anonymous-lv_root rd_LUKS_UUID=luks-3ef72221-1165-46a6-ab69-3932e22e9d4f rd_LVM_LV=vg_anonymous/lv_root rd_LVM_LV=vg_anonymous/lv_swap rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=de
initrd /initramfs-2.6.35.13-92.fc14.i686.img

I tried this
http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=263668
but i couldn't get into the GUI. I tried adding rhgb where i got into the GUI but the result was the same as mentioned above (pressing any key immediately triggers the error response).

Any ideas?
Rgds, K

Blindly updating --skip-broken did the trick!
