"blowfish", not "bluefish" :) It is an encryption algorithm

In the past few releases, you can't just do a chroot from the rescue system.
You have to (assuming the root partition is mounted on /mnt)

mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc
mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sys
mount -o bind /dev /proc/dev

then you can do the chroot
