How can I disable cryptswap? I would like an unencrypted swap like before.
This is on an ubuntu 9.10 system.

To remove crypt mapping use something like this:
cryptsetup remove cryptswap1
Or just reboot the computer. If you remove/comment lines from
/etc/fstab, encrypted swap will not created on the next boot.
If you used cryptsetup to create your encrypted swap, you can easily reverse the process:
Currently your /dev/hda? will be mapped to cryptswap (something like cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/hda4 cryptswap)
so first disable the line in /etc/crypttab that mentions cryptswap and remove the cryptswap line from /etc/fstab
Then use cryptsetup to remove the crypt mapping.
At this point you can remove the swap partition and recreate it as an ordinary partition
