Hi again Walter,

I tested the Lubuntu Vivid beta 1 *alternate* ISO file for the testcase
with LVM encrypted disk and encrypted home. I have tested it with
several previous versions, so I know it by heart, and can run it even
when you have removed it from the iso tracker.

The computer is an hp Probook 6450b laptop with Intel i5 cpu:


There is a minor bug, that it wants to install the bootloader into the
live drive. When selecting /dev/sda manually for the bootloader, it
works :-)

The installed encrypted Lubuntu system runs beautifully in my computer
now, except that it failed to swapon (but this computer with 4 GB RAM
can manage pretty well without swap).

/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1 exists, but when I try to swapon it
directly, it complains: read swap header failed.

sudo swapon -a

complained that /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 does not exist.

So this is another bug, maybe not easy to squash.

I'll check, if the corresponding thing works with the Lubuntu Vivid beta
1 *desktop* ISO file

Best regards
