Do I need to to decrypt the home partition before I move, or does CentOS support the encryption methods that Ubuntu uses? Hopping between Ubuntu distros is no problem at all, but I think I might have problems with this.

  • I don't think there are proprietary Ubuntu encryption schemes. What is the current encryption scheme? LUKS? – xenoid Mar 14 '18 at 12:45
  • yes, but after installing, will CentOS know this drive is encrypted and needs to be decrypted before use – daka Mar 14 '18 at 12:52
  • during the install process, it seems oblivious to that fact – daka Mar 14 '18 at 12:52
  • If it's a separate partition you can alter how it is mounted. See evilshit.wordpress.com/2012/10/22/… – xenoid Mar 14 '18 at 16:47
