testing detached header failed:

1. built grub payload with following modules: ahci usb_keyboard part_msdos part_gpt at_keyboard cbfs cryptodisk luks2 lvm gcry_rijndael gcry_sha1 gcry_sha256 gcry_sha512
2. encrypt a partition: cryptsetup luksFormat --type luks2 -q -h sha512 -s 512 --pbkdf pbkdf2 --header /path/to/header --luks2-metadata-size=16k --luks2-keyslots-size=512k /dev/sda1
(where --luks2-metadata-size=16k --luks2-keyslots-size=512k is optional, this is just to minimize header size, but I also tested without).
3. from the grub cmd, i try to decrypt this partition using: cryptomount -H /path/to/header (ahci0,msdos1)

4. I also tried luks1 encryption with detached header.

whatever I try, I always get the same error:
"no cryptodisk module can handle this device"

Is this feature not 100% implemented yet, I saw people already verifying the patches and would expect this to be working, so if yes, this seems like a bug.


This error message sounds like luks (or luks2) module was not loaded. Did you load it before running cryptomount command?
