Dependency of cryptsetup on cryptsetup-initramfs


I recently updated from ascii to ceres (unstable)

After the full upgrade I got a warning message along the lines of:
"your ramdisk configuration doesn't contain any encrypted drives. Consider removing cryptsetup-initramfs to get rid of this message."

So I did that, and apt removed cryptsetup as well.

I don't have any encrypted disks on my laptop, but I do have encrypted filesystems (e.g. usb sticks, image files etc.) So I'd like to get rid of the warning but keep cryptsetup. Why does cryptsetup require cryptsetup-initramfs? The other way round would seem more logical.

Re: Dependency of cryptsetup on cryptsetup-initramfs

The cryptsetup command is in the cryptsetup-bin package, which does not require cryptsetup or cryptsetup-initramfs to be installed. It should work with just that (and a library).
