Description Ian Kelling 2015-08-17 01:34:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Setting up custom partitioning, lvm with only one encrypted volume (swap), it requires a password. blank does not work. Swap should be able to use a random password. For example, this line in /etc/crypttab:

swap /dev/sdaX   /dev/urandom   swap,cipher=aes-cbc-essiv:sha256,size=256
Comment 1 David Shea 2016-03-23 17:06:37 EDT
This would break resuming from hibernate.
Comment 2 Ian Kelling 2016-03-24 00:02:56 EDT
Anaconda allows having no swap or a small swap, which both break hibernate. This is a perfectly valid and useful configuration.
