Re: [opensuse-factory] Will openSUSE adopt systemd-homed?
I have a surprisingly simple use case:

The data I care about lives in my ~, e.g. /home/rumo, which includes podman containers, FlatPak apps and network settings and things like that. And I even have other users on that same machine. I prefer not to share any passwords if I can help it.

Note that I'm referring to the actual home. There is little point in encrypting the entirety of /home in this context from my perspective.

Regards,

Cris

I never got why to encrypt just disk when there are bunch of

https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1166005 is a good

There is still ample of parameter space between encrypting
the whole disk including /boot (which causes the slow bootup
as described in that bug) and only encrypting /home.
As soon as the mentioned bug is fixed (I do use encrypted /, including /
boot), I really don't get why to encrypt just my ~ and I can't imagine any
working usecase for portability of ~ ...? I don't argue *against* it, I just
lack imagination to find it useful. :-)
