Re: activeate encrypted devices.



After thinking about this on my way home I concluded that we really need a step in the installer that recollects all information, puts it in one place where it does not get changed for the rest of the install ( I don't care if you insert a usb in the middle of the install. we are an installer not an operating system).  After, any place in the installer can go to this data structure and ask for whatever information it needs. (without changing it!!!!)

I'll test the patch and push it once I'm reassured that it fixes the original problem.

Regards.
