I've got a F19 installation that I'd like to turn into a fully encrypted system with LUKS.
There are many howtos on the web for encrypting a partition, but they all show doing it to /home.
the implication is that you need to be logged in as root on the actual system you're modifying, though I don't think that is explicitly stated. That would mean you can't encrypt the root partition itself, since you've got to have an empty partition to work on, then restore its contents from backup.
So, my question(s):
-can you do it while being booted into a recovery environment?
-if not, is there any way to convert the whole thing that I'm not able to figure out on my own (perhaps I'm having a whole series of senior moments) ???
-Or would it simply be best to do a fresh installation?
