I have been trying to solve this problem for a while now. I encrypted my home folder and the swap area and now when I select the first option in the boot loader the OS freezes. I tried reinstalling and encrypting on install and encrypting after install with the same effect.

A weird pattern of squares is shown on the screen and the keyboard is unresponsive(even numlk doesn't make the LED light up). I can boot by going in recovery mode and selecting continue booting normally but the graphics driver doesn't load and I have a very annoying resolutions.

Any suggestions?

P.S. I am running ubuntu 13.04

You must not encrypt your swap disk, because it does not support encrypt.

As you know, swap is just supporter, not the disk space you're going to put files.
