View Full Version : [ubuntu] encryption error after trying to suspend in 8.04.

May 6th, 2008, 06:20 AM

I just upgraded from 7.10 to 8.04. In 7.10, I had the hard drive partitions encrypted. After upgrading to 8.04, I tried to "suspend" to see how things were coming along on that front. The computer shut down and now every time I start up and enter my encryption pass phrase, this error appears:

"the check for '/dev/mapper/sda4_crypt' failed. /dev/mapper/sda4_crypt contains data: - The device /dev/mapper/sda4_crypt contains a valid filesystem type suspend."

So it seems I have lost my swap partition to the suspend process. I looked at my partition info. with GParted, and /dev/sda4 (which was /dev/mapper/sda4_crypt) shows a file system of "unknown".

I'll just back up and recreate an encrypted swap partition. But, has anyone else hit this? Do the Ubuntu folks know about it? I saw a similar issue posted here, but there wasn't really a solution:

Been having the same problem (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=807394).

If I make any progress I'll post it up on my thread.
