DM-Crypt encrypted volume upgrade problems to Ubuntu 9.04

I just used the distribution upgrade option to move from Ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04. My dm-crypt encrypted home directory initially refused to load, and I had to change my volume entry in the /etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml to make it work again.

Specifically, a few of the defaults had changed, so now I had to specify the old (8.04) defaults (ripemd160 hash).

< volume user="summetj" fstype="crypt" path="/dev/sda6" mountpoint="/home/summetj" options="cipher=aes,hash=ripemd160,fsk_cipher=aes-256-ecb,fsk_hash=md5" keyfile="/home/summetj.key" / >
