Having a spare moment I decided to revisit my older post about installing encrypted Gentoo Linux as fast and easy as possible. That post is well out of date and the scripts were not working anymore as pointed out by a kind anonymous reader. So over the last two days I worked out a new/better way of installing an encrypted base Gentoo,
it's a single shell script using dialog for ncurses interface (included on the mini-install DVDs). It's configuration is contained in the header, just under the LICENSE.
- Boot off the Gentoo MINI-install CD for your architecture and download cryptogen.sh
- You can customize the settings contained in the header of the script, most users however, will be just happy to run it.
- Follow the instructions.
