I have a LUKS encrypted USB keychain and for some reason trusty laptop
running Fedora 12 can't open it but netbook running Fedora 12 can. Just
had this problem recently. With that in mind, you might try your LUKS
partition on another computer if possible to see if it opens using a
password you're trying that isn't being accepted. Just a thought.

Hopefully for the rest of us you'll have no success with this ? :)

Come up with a system for passwords. Such as for newegg.com
site name + activity + number important to you + something personal
