I created a LUKS encrypted partition via a udev-triggered script on
6.6 using --key-file /tmp/foo. This worked fine, and I can decrypt the
LUKS partition via script and manually using --key-file with luksOpen.
The odd problem is that I can't decrypt the partition using the
prompt. If I manually create a file with the passphrase in it and then
point to it with --key-file, it decrypts fine. I used 'cat -A
/tmp/foo' to verify that there was no '\n' at the end of the phrase.
Is this expected behaviour? That is; If you create an encrypted
partition using --key-file, you always decrypt with the same? If so, I
can't understand the logic... If not, then I am not sure what I am
Thanks for any insight!
