Hi there,

I created multiple encrypted partitions on my Fedora 9 system. All
of them do have the same password. But I have to enter the password
for each partition (all together 3 times). Is there a way to enter
one password for all partitions since they are all the same?
Not yet. This is filed as a RFE at

That has been an issue for a while, at least for me, under prior
versions of Fedora using dm-crypt/luks.

With F9, I took a different approach, which was to create a clear
partition for /boot and then use LVM to create an encrypted partition group
for everything else (eg. /, /home, etc.).

Thus, I only get prompted once for the LUKS passphrase at boot.

I get prompted at boot, but I would have expected to be prompted when the f/s was mounted. I wanted to have certain users in a secure f/s, /home/secure/USER, where /home/secure was mounted with automount when one of those users logged in. I won't say it can't work that way, just that right now it doesn't. ;-)
Otherwise FC9 looks acceptably smooth for a new release.
