Re: Linux distro w/loop-aes

hey everyone, great points all, but i have a quick question...

Regarding kernels I would like to add that none of them has usbcore built-in which is
definitely required to boot from USB memory. For standard distros it would make no
sense to build this module into the kernel. That´s why installable modules will never do
the job.

couldn't a package maintainer keep a fully modular kernel and load
usbcore from an initramfs? it seems like your usb drive would need
some sort of custom initrd/initramfs to mount the encrypted root
anyways, so what keeps an installer from laying down a copy of the
module onto the usb drive as well?
