    Default LUKS partition is lost!


    Hello,

    I recently setup my OpenSUSE system with a LUKS parition as home
    directory. Today I reinstalled the system to downgrade to 32-bit instead
    of 64-bit. the LUKS partition was not detected by YAST. My new system is
    now setup but I have no clue how to recover my LUKS partition (it is
    still there with all data). The partition manager does not allow me to
    define a mount point... and without that step cryptsetup can not uncrypt
    the partition...

    I googled about that problem but even if there are many people who seem
    to have the same problems, I couldn't find any solutions!

    what can I do now to recover it????

    Uh...

    I found a solution, because CryptSetup doesnt seems to need a mounted
    partition:

    cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda3 restore
    mkdir /restore
    mount /dev/sda3 /restore

    ... and now save data :-)
