I think just pressing Ctrl + C should work:
- Code: Select all
# end Salix setup script
Maybe the final dialog could be clarified by adding something like: "Press Ctrl + C to abort and return to the shell."

I don't see why one would need the generic kernel for that purpose? You can create a initrd with raid/lvm/luks modules with any kernel (unless the modules were disabled or built into the kernel binary). The static binaries which are added to the initrd for such purposes are independent from the kernel used.

I totally agree. Cryptsetup (and lvm) should be included in the installation cd environment. As lvm is already there, cryptsetup shouldn't need much of additional dependencies. It's linked statically anyway.
Kernel-source could be a nice addition, but the space needed is very questionable. I would prefer a fully working kernel-headers package (i.e. one can compile nvidia, virtualbox, etc. drivers without complete source).
