Version: lenny beta 2
Severity: normal

This problem applies to both the newt as well as the gtk interface.
When encrypting the root partition using loop-aes (cipher AES256)
the system hangs in the initramfs shell after reboot, waiting for the
root files system.

1. During the installation the GPG keyfile gets stored under
/target/etc/loopkeys/ and not copied into the initrd image.

2. The following required binaries and libs are missing in the
initrd image:

3. The initrd is missing a script probing for AES-encrypted partitions
and asking for passphrases

Fixing this would probably require some modifications to
