ON Centos 5, using GPARTED I created partitions for filing systems ext3 and ext4. 4 primary and unlimited (except by space) extended partitions. That suggests those partitions are not GPT but old fashioned M$DOS I encrypted some of those partitions. The 'blkid' command produces a list of UUIDs for those partitions. A few examples:- > /dev/sda5: LABEL="a5u" UUID="3cbc7570-30b8-4970-a0df-a9a9602770d0" TYPE="ext4" > /dev/sda2: UUID="e954fbaa-dc51-46dc-a352-cceb439080e5" TYPE="crypt_LUKS" > /dev/ram0: UUID="49b98b86-116a-469b-b6de-a157bb0a12dd" TYPE="ext2" > /dev/sda1: LABEL="d6sys" UUID="cd632820-0701-4a6a-b329-6798b6a29966" TYPE="ext3" SEC_TYPE="ext2" -- Regards, Paul.
