Subject: [gentoo-user] Why the insistence on encryption and multiple devices?

1 Hello list,
3 I'm installing a new xfce4 system on a 4-core 32-bit Celeron box, and portage
4 is insisting that I install encryption software, whether I want it or not. I
5 don't.
7 The requirement seems to come from this line in the libblockdev ebuild:
9 IUSE="bcache +cryptsetup device-mapper dmraid doc escrow lvm kbd test +tools
10 vdo"
12 Can anyone tell me why a utility library is imposing both cryptsetup and raid
13 on me, neither of which I either need or want?
15 Incidentally, I also have cryptsetup on this plasma box, regardless of need -
16 though I do use raid here.
