I would change the severity to HIGH because I cannot install Arch using the encryption support. I posted to the arch mailing list (search for "cryptsetup" around 2006-06-10), but the solution posted by J. Vinet does not work (no networking). Someone talked about an xdelta publication. I think this is like a binary patch for the 0.7.2 iso file. Consider this. Please, I am waiting for a solution as soon as possible.

This file is owned by glibc. AFAIK, the installer uses busybox, so this missing library will cause more problems for cryptsetup I guess. Best would be to provide static compiled tools on the install iso.

It works if you copy the (attached) file from an usbstick or an attached hdd to the /usr/lib with the installation disk bootet as described in the wiki: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Encrypted_Root_Filesystem

>> the solution posted by J. Vinet does not work (no networking).

It will work if you bring up networking. You can use the /arch/setup script to help you achieve this if you're not sure what you're doing. Start /arch/setup and select an FTP install. The first option will be called "Configure Network".

Ok ... and what about the mount command (usbstick or floppy)? How can I mount it to use David Fuhr hint? I tryied "mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /mnt" and there is device not found. Is this an option?

I'll try FTP install at night (home).

The link http://www.archlinux.org/~judd/0.7.2/fix/libnsl.so.1 is not available. At least from Brazil. :-)

Cheers

Thank you, everybody! I followed Judd Vinet hints and I am now back with my customized "KDArch" desktop, but now with /dev/hda3 (/) encrypted. It is a good experience.
