This is now in rpi-update firmware.

Since the latest update I can not decrypt my volume with dm-crypt
It says that the "aes-xts-plain64-encryption" is not supported.


What has changed?

Looks like an upstream regression/change. See:

Is anyone able to use the experimental OpenGL driver with the latest kernel on a Raspberry Pi 3? I just get the Rainbow of Death (power supply is 2.5amp, no peripherals attached).

Yes I get the same with a Pi3 another machine with a Pi2 still works ok, both were fully updated.

Works fine for me on Pi3 with BRANCH=next firmware/kernel.

Hi Dom,
At my last post I was running 4.1.19-v7+ #853 March 9
I have done another apt-get upgrade and am now running

The Pi is still running, hasn't crashed, as if I do Ctrl-Alt-F2 I can login and do a clean shutdown (blind as there is no display)
But I am still ending up with a completely blank (black) screen, after a boot up.
I initially get the full screen rainbow screen for about 10 seconds, then the screen goes off, there is still disk activity, but the screen stays black, and never comes back.
I am using a HDMI to VGA adaptor on my HDMI port (monitor doesn't have HDMI and I'm using the DVI-D input on the monitor for another computer, so only leaving a VGA input.) Could this be causing a problem? I'm assuming it should not. If I return to normal non accelerated operation the screen returns perfectly.
Regards, Kevin.

Update, it is being caused by the HDMI to VGA adaptor :-( I decided to dig out an HDMI to DVI-D cable and try that and it works, (I'm using it as I type this) so there is something about either having to use VGA mode (1920x1080 60Hz is what the monitor says it's being driven with), or the actual HDMI TO VGA adaptor that the new driver does not like. Kevin.
