How to create a LUKS partition encrypted with Adiantum, ideal for low end and older devices/computers

How to create a LUKS partition encrypted with the Adiantum scheme

Important note

  • Sector size and key size are fixed, you cannot change them!
  • You can play with the hash but using less than sha256 is irresponsible!
  • You can convert an already existing luks2 partition with cryptsetup(8).

Very low end devices or computers (say, an old Pentium, Celeron, Raspberry Pi or older SoC)

Intel Gen 4 mobile integrated GPU (GMA X3100 a.k.a. Crestline) Linux fix

Not needed with Linux 5.3 or later

To fix slow boot and spurious drm error with a gen 4 mobile integrated GPU (GL960, GLE960, GM965 and GME965) add the following to your kernel bootparams:

video.allow_duplicates=1 video=SVIDEO-1:d

The problem is the existence of a SVGA port, even if it is not wired out to a connector.
