i encrypted my fedora 19 dvd install. it shows up as "LUKS encryption is not supported." It does show in gparted on ubuntu 13.4 and as an encrypted partition in the unity column. sudo update-grub does not find the partition in ubuntu either. would lilo from a debian install find this partition? or would falling back to regular grub do better? boot repair didn't fix it either from the ubuntu apps. this is a i-386 install. i can access it with the encrypted passphrase within ubuntu.

Fedora’s /boot is on a separate unencrypted volume I hope? I’m not aware of any boot-loader which can read kernel images from an encrypted file-system.

What Gareth mentioned in the comment: make sure that the /boot location for that Fedora install is not on the encrypted partition. If you're dual booting ubuntu and fedora, you might possibly be able to set up a boot entry in the grub for ubuntu, to boot that Fedora system.
