while installing my Gentoo system I encoutered a strange error.
One of my disk is encrypted, I have done all the installation via ssh, so did I enter the encryption passphrase via ssh.
Now I entered the password directly on the computer, and it did not work. (I tried it about six times, even plugged in the keyboard from the other computer and tried it again). After ssh'ing into the box, unlocking the cryptdrive worked without complaining.
I think I have to reformat that crypt-drive again, because its intended to be a /root encryption, so ssh'ing into the computer wont be possible in that stage of boot. (reformating the drive is not a problem, I prolly did that about 20 times the last five days). But why does this problem occur at all?
And yeah, my password is long, about 30 characters (numbers, upper/lowercase, special chars) and I am using a german keyboard on both computers. But entering the passphrase into the shell, to actually see it, yields - at least from what I can see - the same result.
