I have a similar, but slightly different question. I have used an
encrypted partition for some time now (before anaconda grew support
for this), containing /home (so / is not encrypted). I get prompted
for the password on boot, but the 'prompt' mainly consists of plymouth
switching back to a text console. I know that I am supposed to enter
the passphrase at this point, and it all works, but from the quoted
text above I suspect that there is a 'pretty' prompt for this,
too.

What do I have to do to get this prompt?
