[xubuntu-users] Disk encryption boot oddity

I have the same issue and got used to it since it doesn't seem to cause any trouble.
There's enough swap space available (8GB) according to free -m, yet cat /etc/fstab returns:

/dev/mapper/xubuntu--vg-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=11fd7dab-a569-4e98-9722-8f8b74b60450 /boot ext2 defaults 0 2
/dev/mapper/xubuntu--vg-swap_1 none swap sw 0 0Showing no mount point for the swap. This seems odd to me. Is it? I would expect it to be /swap.

Kind regards,
Frode Lindeijer

It's also a message which would obviously cause a newcomer to get worried, which is usually A Bad Thing... ///PeterI wonder if it's related in any way to an error seen during login relating to an error in setting up /swap? In all recent installs, I've gotten cryptswap errors after boot during login. Just out of curiosity, do you have /swap available? E.g.,

 free -m Any "missing" partitions? What do you see in fstab?
