I know this has been asked but I am asking this because the fix i found didnt work. I got the same problem this person had: Ubuntu 19.04 "waiting for encrypted source device /swapfile" and then initramfs prompt on boot : linuxquestions
but i tried the fix which was to add "size=256" in /etc/crypttab. I did that, but it still warns me that I haven't specified size in crypttab and still takes time to boot. (my computer will still boot to a working gui if i type exit at the prompt)
Here's the contents of /etc/fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/nvme0n1p2 during installation UUID=694b4858-ead8-400d-9406-f9fc45dc71f1 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # /boot/efi was on /dev/nvme0n1p1 during installation UUID=CA5F-286C /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 1 #/swapfile none swap sw 0 0 #/dev/mapper/cryptswap1 none swap sw 0 0 #/swapfile swap swap defaults 0 0 /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 none swap sw,pri=100 0 0
and here is /etc/crypttab:
# <target name> <source device> <key file> <options> cryptswap1 /swapfile /dev/urandom swap,offset=1024,cipher=aes-xts-plain64,size=256
does it help that it worked all the time before but just doesnt now, and that i had to use Ubuntu recovery mode DPKG before I edited /etc/crypttab?
Any help would be VERY appreciated. TY in advance!
edit: it would be nice if i could keep swap as i only have 5.7gb ram (2.3gb ram is system reserved)
