Does Banan Pi support rootfs encryption for Ubuntu/Raspbian or any other OS.
I tried rootfs encrytion using steps in http://paxswill.com/blog/2013/11/04/encrypted-raspberry-pi/ and it seems CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not enabled for Ubuntu/Raspbian

I see few threads on encrytion but no answer. Can lemaker helps here.

OK , I think you should configure the linux kernel and enable CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD option, and then replace the kernel image.

Build kernel image:
  1. http://wiki.lemaker.org/BananaPro/Pi:Building_u-boot,_script.bin_and_linux-kernel
Copy the Code

Build OS image:
  1. http://wiki.lemaker.org/BananaPro/Pi:Making_a_bootable_.img_image_file
Copy the Code

I'm able to encrypt using Berryboot but I want to skip mmcblk paraphrase part, is it possible to store it in any conf file ?
Update : Seems Berryboot won't let you store password https://github.com/maxnet/berryboot/issues/28

@John can Lemaker update kernel supporting initramfs? I'm seeing apt-get not finding many packages mentioned in build kernel page.

Using password at boot time is not option that I'm looking for. I used initiramfs on raspberry pi and I can boot with options provided in cryptab.
No encryption support is going to affect my usability.
