Yes, using tinyssh with an ed25519 key and all three hooks were entered and the image rebuilt. I'm running a RAID1 as well, no idea if that affects it. If you need any file copies or logs, I can provide those.

I thought you were using dropbear. Well, I have tinyssh working just fine on two separate installations. Are you using all three hooks? netconf, tinyssh and utils?

No, I'm using the latest 64bit Arch image from beginning of October. Package installation relatively minimal so far. Basically base base-devel git openssh intel-ucode and the ones required for all of the tinyssh stuff to work.

Hi All,

I'm going to test using dropbear back again, to make sure these errors are not present. Also, are you using a 32-bit os?

@ArchangeGabriel I still plan to bring these packages to the repos, but I need to apply some PR's and test things a little before doing so.

Hi @grazzolini

I have had the same issue as @lepokle. I'm setting up a brand new mini-server and it's barely installed, only really done the basics and was working on this as I want to be able to remote decrypt. When I tried, I was prompted for the passphrase but upon entry I received the following error.

" must be installed for pthread_cancel to work


It then dumped me back to requesting the passphrase again. Entering again just repeated this. I booted off a rescue stick and decrypted the drive there then chrooted across. I added to my FILES= parameter in mkinitcpio.conf and rebuilt my initramfs, and it now works perfectly. I have seen a few others elsewhere online commenting on this issue and that this seems to be an unstated dependency somewhere which is not being automatically added to the image.

Hope that helps you squash it, but strange that it's not affecting all users. If you need any more information then let me know, I will send what I can. And thank you for your work on this, it's a superb piece of code and will save me from family rage when a reboot is needed and I'm not home!

Not yet. But I'm going to add all my mkinitcpio-* stuff, because we need it for the PIA servers.

grazzolini: BTW, why is this set of packages still not in the repos?

grazzolini commented on 2018-04-01 02:25

Hi @lepokle,

I have a system with netconf, tinyssh and util and I have just rebuilt the initcpio and I was able to unlock it just fine. Do you know what is the error you are getting?

lepokle commented on 2018-03-31 11:53

Hi, on a currently installed machine of mine, decrypting only works if I add "/usr/lib/" to "FILES" in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf

Maybe you can include it into install/encryptssh?

I'm open to suggestions. This package is the reminiscent of a single one that was split into 3. The utils was meant to grow, but I never added more utilities to it myself.
