After the latest update of the kernel to 4.18.5-7 I can't unlock my encrypted harddrive when booting. It's still working with 4.17.* and has nothing to do with the keyboard layout. I was using EN_US when updating. Has anyone an idea how to solve this apart from not updating the kernel?

Where am I supposed to do that and what is the goal?

I was using EN_US when updating.

What keyboard layout is your password typed in? is it also en_US?

I cannot reproduce your issue, keyboard encryption unlocks fine with 4.18.5…4.18.7 kernels for me. There needs to be a bit more different on your computer.

Boot with previous kernel update and tell us if it works ?

Yes, it does. 4.17.x works, 4.18.5 and 4.18.7 fails.
