Mounting encrypted Linux partitions from a Live Disc


I’m running Manjaro and recently had some issues booting. I have encrypted partitions and haven’t ever had to figure out how to mount them manually from a Live Disc environment. This blog is a braindump of notes I used to get things working. I think I’m using dm-crypt directly, but could be wrong about that.

Mounting partitions

Enabling grub menu

Boot to text-only mode

Check boot logs

journalctl -b | less
