I get this error whenever I start my Lubuntu 13.10 installation:

/dev/mapper/cryptswap1 is not ready yet or not present

It asks me, if I want to skip, manually repair, or wait. I chose the option; 'wait' and I can still login and everything works just fine for me. I have selected to use the option to encrypt my home folder without lvm.

  • Is this something I should be concerned about?

I have exactly the same experience with Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.10. After some reinstalls and tries, I gave up solving the problem and use it like this since without a problem other than the annoying error message. –  Daniel S. Apr 14 '14 at 17:23
