comment How to create a tar of a chroot?
@tarabyte: if the tar archive was created with --numeric-owner, a simple xpvf is fine. Otherwise you have to use --numeric-owner at extraction time.

I always assume GNU/Linux, unless the question gives reason not to.

comment How to automate cryptsetup-luksAddKey with passphrase?
@Strukt, the prompt is only for luksFormat, not for luksAddKey. The luksFormat in my answer was only to show an example, obviously you should not luksFormat yours or lose all your data! You can get rid of the YES prompt using --batch-mode.

comment How to automate cryptsetup-luksAddKey with passphrase?
You'll have to use --key-file then. For keyfiles that can be used in a simple pipe (or even typed), use something like echo -n $(pwgen -sy 512 1) > keyfile. (pwgen also uses /dev/urandom; echo -n removes the newline at the end)

comment Samsung 850 Evo SSD Hardware Encryption
With AES-NI and when actually using AES cipher, it would be CPU accelerated encryption. The SSD is not involved other than actually storing the encrypted data.

If your box supports AES-NI, just use LUKS.

comment What's the philosophy behind delaying writing data to disk?
It probably would affect the process - and there are several variables in /proc/sys/vm/ to fine-tune the behaviour... and it's not like shell scripts have to sync either, that's only under special circumstances where you have to expect the possibility of a non-clean shutdown.
