(This has been posted to Ubuntu Forums - not a lot of help on this so far!)

Fresh install of 14.04 on a Eee PC1001P.
I used the automatic install and chose to use LVM and encrypt the whole 
of the drive.
I've just noticed that the automatic install did NOT create a Swap 
I can't re-size the existing partition in GParted being run from a Live 
USB - the option is greyed out.
The specs of the machine are:
Processor CPU Intel Atom N450 / 1.66 GHz dual core
Memory RAM 1 GB ( 1 x 1 GB )
160 GB HDD.
I shall be upgrading the RAM shortly to 2GB.

Here's what Disks shows:

And here's what GParted shows:

Can anyone tell me what the 1.1 GB partition is, and as presumably I do 
need a Swap area, how do I create one?
