Re: [opensuse-factory] Tumbleweed full disk encryption passphrase

It should be sufficient to type the passphrase only in grub2.

Yes, it should be. Our automatic openQA tests also show this limitation in
https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/678582#step/grub_test/2
referencing a feature request
"Provide kernel interface to pass LUKS password from bootloader" - but it is
just this, a "feature request".

After some
research I found some Arch Linux specific instruction [1]. But this uses
an Arch specific initrd hook to open the encrypted fs by reading a
passphrase from a file included in the initrd. I haven't found an
equivalent hook in the tumbleweed dracut config. Would this setup also
be a possible solution for tumbleweed? How could it be configured?

The other problem is the different keyboard layout. For this I found
some older instruction [2] for grub to load a specific keyboard layout
in early stage before access the disk, but it is stated that this is not
possible for grub2 (links the opensuse113 docu). Also some Arch Linux
instructions [3] for grub, but not explicitly for grub2. What is the
"opensuse tumbleweed way" of configuring this?

All this I do not know.
