Interesting! The F9 partitions were set up nominally using the same
technique during the F9 install as I just did for F10 (except that I had
previously randomised all the partitions just ahead of the original F9
install). The F10 install was a clean install over the F9 partitions but
nothing additional was done.
Either way I do like the current setup - I have not yet plugged in a test
encrypted usbkey that I was playing with under F9, nor a luks encrypted CD
that I prepared in F9. For the usbkey the system just asked for the
passphrase after plugging in and then just mounted and was visible, so I
hope this will be the same in F10.
The encrypted CD was a pain in F9 and needed some commands entering to set
up the mapping - certainly it would not just ask for the passphrase and
mount - I am currently testing some other things on the encrypted laptop but
I will do these tests hopefully before the weekend is out.
