Hi,

in a 15.0 freshly installed I got this /etc/crypttab file:

cr_sda4 /dev/sda4


It surprises me that there are no "options". The normal syntax is:

# - ------------------------···-------------···--------···------------------...
# <target device> <source device> <key file> <options>
# ------------------------···-------------···--------···------------------

I suppose the result is

cr_sda4 /dev/sda4 none none

or perhaps "auto".


But what surprises me more is "/dev/sda4". I thought that method was deprecated, and we should use UUIDs instead. In my main computer, disk /dev/sda changes from boot to boot depending on what external disks I have connected, or none. Thus the rest, sdb, sdc... shift.

I don't think this is correct. :-?


- -- Cheers
