This is for an install on a UEFI-based laptop with a GUID partition already in place.
There is only one disk I'm dealing with and it has partitions that I can't erase for provisional reasons (non-Linux). Therefore, manual partitioning has been my way up to this point.
I'm trying to install Lubuntu 18.10 with LUKS using LVM. I want to encrypt the entire partition holding distinct logical volumes (/, home, swap).
Currently, I already have Lubuntu installed with distinct partitions with only my home directory and swap encrypted.
I attempted to reinstall Lubuntu and came to find that the new installer seemingly supports what I'm seeking to do.
Here's what I've done so far:
1) Create boot partition and configure mount point
2) Create LVM2 PV partition and check encryption (inputting passphrase)
3) Attempt to create volume group
That's as far as I get.
I've looked online at Ubuntu's wiki/guide, whatever-you-call-it, and I've understood that to have a LV, you need a volume group—and to have a volume group, you need a physical volume. From what I see on the screen, I've created a physical volume. When I go to create a volume group, it recognizes it but when I hit OK, nothing happens.
I'm just stuck there with nothing to and I cannot proceed.
I've gone to Github and I'm 90% this is a Calamares limitation OR I'm just doing something wrong and I haven't caught on to it yet.
Does Calamares on Lubuntu even support what I'm trying to do and if not is there a way I can get some other GUI utility to do this for me? (yes, I'm that lazy)
