I was trying the Beta Installer for SilverBlue 33. I was testing the Btrfs subvolume option in order to combine three disks an old pc of mine has. However I couldn’t see anyhing in the Anaconda Installer advanced Blivet-GUI for an encrypted Btrfs option. If I selected ext4 the option to encrypt a partition appeared.
Is encryption not supported in Btrfs or am I doing something wrong?
I found how to do it. Using the custom option, instead of the Blivet-GUI, we create a Btrfs volume. After it is specified there is an option to configure it. That option presents us with the option to encrpyt the Btrfs partition.
Yes. Btw note that it is not a btrfs encryption option. I mean, indeed Anaconda first create an encrypted LUKS partition, then, inside this partition, it creates a filesystem (in this case you chose btrfs, but it can be ext4 as well).
I’ve added support for encrypting btrfs volumes to blivet-gui so it should be available in the next release – Allow creating encrypted btrfs volumes by vojtechtrefny · Pull Request #241 · storaged-project/blivet-gui · GitHub I don’t know why it wasn’t available before, I probably just forgot to enable it for btrfs
