recently got a eSata docking station for hard drives and after deciding to make those volumes encrypted LVM’s, i created my first logical volume. After setting it up in yast2 and rebooting i recieved a prompt for the lvm password, gave it and recieved:
Mar 17 13:38:21 blkdragon kernel: 1105.172687] padlock: VIA PadLock not detected.
Mar 17 13:38:21 blkdragon kernel: 1105.313056] alg: No test for stdrng (krng)

Mar 17 13:38:22 blkdragon kernel: 1105.416892] padlock: VIA PadLock Hash Engine not detected.
Mar 17 13:38:22 blkdragon modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting padlock_sha (/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-0.6-desktop/kernel/drivers/crypto/padlock-sha.ko): No such device
boot resumed and i looked for the reason for this, the padlock-sha.ko module does exist in the appropiate place AND the volume was mounted in spite of the error message.
lvmdump seems to indicate that the volume is, in fact, encrypted. My thoughts at the moment are that the volume was encrypted by aes, so the padlock-sha.ko was not necessary to mount the volume.
what is amiss? backtracking the message log the same error happened during the creation of the volume before rebooting.
the kernel version gives it away but it’s a 11.2 machine.
