Hi,

I'm using full disk encryption on my PC but sometimes I want to reboot it remotely. It looks like it's possible to drop a dropbear ssh server into the initramfs to enable this, but I'm not clear on how I'd go about this with Gentoo.

I'm using genkernel to generate my initramfs and I'm not sure how to customize it beyond the options that are already there... Has anyone done this, or can someone point me at where I might want to look to get started?

Thanks

On further inspection, it looks like Dracut has add-on support for this, so I think i'll give that a try
