I had an Ubuntu 10.10 encrypted (dm-crypt) installation on my PC. Today i did the distro upgrade to 11.04, but the upgrade failed. There are no working system on my PC anymore.

How can i now access data on my encrypted /home partition? I remember my password exactly, but i don't have that hash, wich was generated on setup of that 10.10 encrypted installation.

In livecd session, it asks for password, but it wount work - no access.
