AspireOne and encrypted SD card /home

Jan 28 2013 Published by under linux

Tip for the week (well I finally sorted this just in time on Sunday for LCA2013 )

If you run /home with encryption it doesn’t come back properly after suspend resumes, unless you add the following to your kernel boot command line:

mmc_core.removable=0

I think this means the hot removal of the SD card slots doesn’t work so dynamically but in my case, it means I can suspend my machine – which I need to do a lot at LCA.

(With thanks to https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=91807 )

I found this out after rebuilding my trustty aspireone to Crunchbang Waldorf and suddenly suspend appeared to cause all manner of problems.
