Forgive me, I'm typing from my phone due to inoperable OS.
The OS won't finish booting and I can't get to the desktop. I can however drop to a console.
On boot, no matter the contents of fstab, it prompts me for the key to the encrypted swap partition (which was previously normal) and then drops out of the GUI screen and to some system screen checklist and then eventually stops loading.
I had previously had an encrypted swap (cryptfs or some such, the one that was supposed to allow hibernation) on 17.10. I think this is the problem.
Steps I've taken: 1. I check fstab and the swap partition was commented out, so I uncommented it. Didn't work. Went back and commented it out again. 2. I edited etc/initrmfs tools/conf.d/resume to comment out the partition in there 3. Exec update-initramfs -uk all to update initramfs
No dice. Still can't get to a GUI.
