so i would like to make my openrc or grub to automatically mount my /home encrypted partition but that it will still ask for passphrase
now i get error at but that dolvm couldnt found any lvm partition, i have this in my defaukt/grub

Code:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="dolvm crypt_home=UUID=4d663460-f28f-4aa6-882a-974187b7701a home=/dev/mapper/vg0-home"


i followed this guide https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Full_Disk_Encryption_From_Scratch_Simplified
but i guess it works on for all encrypted system

this is my dissetup

Rather than mounting it at grub level, do it via openrc. Configure /etc/conf.d/dmcrypt accordingly and make sure the dmcrypt service is started at boot level.
Code:

target='vg0-home'
source=UUID='4d663460-f28f-4aa6-882a-974187b7701a'
key='/full/path/to/homekey'

Plus fstab entry for /dev/mapper/vg0-home.

Actually, I just see that this is in the guide you were using.
