    That you have to do it manually, YaST will not do it for you. You have
    to follow the old guide you pointed to, and adapt it for a current
    distro version.

    I have a virtual system where I'm attempting to do it, but so far I'm
    stuck, too many things to do in my plate.


    YaST instead will use an encrypted LVM. Once the developers managed to
    do that some versions ago, they disregarded any other method.

    Not wrong - unsupported.

    It appears that's the route to go then. I was worried that I was doing something stupid!

    LVM it is, then! Thanks for all the replies, folks!

    You could consider entering a feature in openFATE requesting root
    encryption without LVM. Have a look at
    Support installation with
    encrypted root file system
    , the last comment.

    Apparently other distributions can do it.
