Summary: secure boot failed if /boot is on lvm
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.3
Version: RC 2
Platform: 64bit
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Bootloader
AssignedTo: jsrain@xxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: mchang@xxxxxxxx
QAContact: jsrain@xxxxxxxx
Found By: System Test
Blocker: ---


The 'opensuse_secureboot' cannot boot if configured /boot on LVM [1]. On the
other hand if we disable secure boot and boot from ordinary 'opensuse' entry,
it boots and works pretty well.

Note: If we try to configure /boot on lvm, you'll encounter "Because of
partitioning, the boot loader cannot be installed properly" and you don't get
any proposed bootloader during installation. However if you ignore them and
proceed the installation eventually works as this is supported by grub2 (but
not by grub, but we still inherit our default proposal from grub).
