been there, done that. The problem is that then i cant use the snapshot
facility while the stuff is mounted, and i cant resize it while it is
mounted. I'd like that feature. Okay, i could just encrypt the
partition(s)
below LVM, but that is troubled too, as i might not want to encrypt all
my LV's, and either i might have to start severel loopback devices.
And as for loop-aes... no thanks, i cant even change my password.
