I'm looking forward to installing Oneiric. But I need to have full-disk encryption. I, along with over 6,800 other Ubuntu users, have been patiently waiting for the Live CD Installer to gain the ability to setup Full-Disk Encryption.

Will I be able to install full-disk encryption on 11.10 with the Live CD installer?

Are you aware that you can use the alternate installer for that? That installer is for the advanced user though. – Lekensteyn Oct 12 '11 at 19:41
@Lekensteyn The OP linked to an Ubuntu Brainstorm idea that you should be able to do this with the regular Live CD as well and not have to use the alternate idea marked as "in development". – Christopher Kyle Horton Oct 12 '11 at 19:45
All previous versions allow it … it would make sense that the final 11.10 would have it to. – Martin Ueding Oct 13 '11 at 13:17

Perhaps LVM is an option. Here is a guide for an installation of 11.04. Although we would need someone more knowledgeable to comment if it is possible to implement that in 11.10.
