possible to run out of space on /boot partition when installed using
auto recipe & full-disk-encryption
Status in partman-auto-crypto package in Ubuntu:
Status in partman-auto-crypto source package in Quantal:
Status in partman-auto-crypto source package in Saucy:
When choosing full disk encryption in the quantal version of Ubiquity,
the resulting /boot partition seems small.
In my test installation /boot came to 228MB.
Assuming that each kernel+initrd comes to about 30MB, that doesn't
leave much space for old kernels/initrds as kernel upgrades pile-up.
Many users do not know how to clear old kernels. A full /boot will
mean that no further apt transactions can occur until older kernels
are removed and the newer kernel installation is completed. Users
will then be missing out on security updates, hardware enablements,
and installing new packages.
