I re-installed Ubuntu as the only OS on my PC, deleting both Windows 7 and my previous Ubuntu 14.04 installation. But now, when starting my computer I see this message:
What does it mean?
Did I do something wrong?
I performed a pretty much standard clean installation, deleting everything.
A few things that come to my mind about doing anything different from my previous Ubuntu installation is that I checked the "Encrypt my Home folder" option and I ejected the installation CD when I got the message "Installation complete, please restart the computer" because of my BIOS setting being to start from the CD-Rom boot.
How can I 'fix' this (if there's anything to fix at all)?
I should say that Ubuntu feels a little more slow than it used to be on my previous installation, could this have anything to do with it?
I already did a full software update, still the same message.
PS: Sorry for the low quality of the picture, my camera is a potato, hope you get to see what is says.
A user pointed out to me the fact that this question is a duplicate of What to do about "the disk drive for /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 is not ready yet or not present"?, and there's a link to a possible answer on it but I really don't understand what that answer is saying, can someone PLEASE guide me through it?
I'm currently on step 4
Install gparted. Run it and format your swap partition as linux-swap. Make sure to get the right partition; if you get the wrong one, you'll lose possibly important data! The line you commented out in crypttab should give the correct partition name (it comes right after
But I don't really understand what it is I should do, here's an image to my gparted partitions:
I managed to do the steps 4 and 5. but now I'm on step 6
In the file /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume, find the line that says
RESUME=UUID=followed by letters and numbers like (but not identical to) ..... from the last step. Replace them with ..... (i.e., with the letters and numbers mkswap gave after UUID=.) What does it mean by "In the file...". Where is that file, how do I open it?
I lost the "UUID" string and couldn't find it anymore so I just re-installed Ubuntu, left the "Encrypt my Home folder" option unchecked and the message just went away, I did understand eventually what the solution was because of the help obtained from Rohith Madhavan but because I couldn't find the "UUID" string again I got frustrated; I'm going to mark the question as solved though because of being another question's duplicate witch has been already solved.
By the way, I didn't removed the CD after the "Installation complete" message and, of course, there was a message telling me to do so when starting.
