Got some time for my computers tonight! Spending time once again with gentoo installation, still trying to get that full disk encryption going. I think I have it now, currently compiling the kernel, then grub, then I'll know.

@stigatle Don't forget to compile the right crypto mode into your kernel (CONFIG_CRYPTO_XTS=y unless you chose something else in cryptsetup), or you won't be able to unlock the root partition and can't boot.

@ataraxia937 Thanks for the info. I'm following the guide here:
wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Full_Disk

And it has all the info I need.
I think where I messed up earlier was when I defined my volume ID's, I think I got them wrong last time.
Currently compiling the kernel. So I'll know soon if I got everything right this time (hope so).
