I'm a newbee to Linux. I installed Xubuntu 14.04 LTE on my 1.6GHz/2GB RAM/120 GB SSD HDD netbook. Everything goes smoothly, except I realized that during booting and logging in there was a warning that swap file was unavailable. I used the hints from this forum and from others to remove this, but the system still lacks swap.
Please note that I had no such issues with a similar notebook installation, during which I did not use encrypted partition etc.
So, in the netbook with issues, GParted reports the following partitions: /dev/sda1 [keys icon] ext2 /boot 243MiB /dev/sda2 extended 111.55 GiB /dev/sda5 [exclamation mark icon] crypt-liks 111.55 GiB
So, no swap is available. Is it really an issue, or shall I used a certain file as a swap since the disk and partitions are encrypted?
I'd appreciate the suggestions from expert users.
