Subject: Encrypted install does not boot
Date: Tue, 4 Jan 2022 15:09:34 -0500
Package: devuan-installer

Version: devuan_daedalus_5.0.preview-20211227_amd64_netinstall.iso

Encrypted install boots to initramfs prompt.

Manual partitioning, single encrypted partition without lvm and with a
separate unencrypted partition for /boot.

To repair the system, boot iso into Rescue mode, open a shell in the
installed system, and install missing packages:

The initramfs will be rebuilt automatically and the system will boot

I didn't try encrypted lvm install.
