Hello!

It would be cool that this project support reading LVM inside DM-crypt. This way I could access the encrypted parition via FREEOTFE which contain LVM2 with different logical volumes and filesystems.

    This sounds great but these days i am quite busy but if i get time i will look into DM-crypt.
    I think this should be feature request not bug :-)
    thanks.

     
  • This sounds really great feature! Really great idea and really looking forward for this feature.

    BTW I think you don't need to look at dm-crypt as FreeOTFE exposes unencrypted data/device to the Windows. ext2read just need to look at mentioned exposed unencrypted device for LVM(2). I have seen that ext2read supports enumerates PhysicalDrives only. Only change which is needed is to look for Virtual Drives/Devices as well.

    Yes!!!
    Ext2fsd doesn't support as well. But there is as well hacked version of it: Ext2fsd-0.48-bb8.
    But I'm not sure if it works.
