With the current partitioner in the openSuSE 11.1 Installer it is not possible
to configure a partition for encryption using dm-crypt and then using the
resulting device for LVM2. This missing feature hurts a lot because it requires
the user who wants to encrypt the whole disk including swap to enter multiple
passwords at boot. Swap encryption with a user defined password is very useful
for encrypted suspend/resume on notebooks. This missing feature currently
prevents me from using openSuSE 11.1 on my notebook :(
