Moving from Linux with LVM, LUKS encryption, to FreeBSD

Postby jjthomas » 24 Sep 2012, 13:03

I am currently running Slackware 13.37 installed with LVM and LUKS encryption. I also have a second hard disk with the LUKS (no LVM) encryption. Is it possible to read these drives via FreeBSD? With the password, of course.

I am installing FreeBSD 9.0 and will be using it going forward. If I can, I want to be able to save the data on the two encrypted drives. It is about 700GB.

Thank you.

I thought it would be "no," but wanted to check with the experienced.

My next step is to go ahead and install FreeBSD, install Linux in a VirtualBox and access the data that way. As I think about this I'm not sure that would work. One way to find out.

Thank you.

AFAIK Virtualbox doesn't let you access raw HDD. qemu does.
If that's what you want to do.
