    I'am new to Linux/Ubuntu and this is the first time that I'm trying to use it.
    Yesterday I installed Linux Ubuntu 11.10 on my system but when it boot up and the screen with ubuntu written on it appeared there also came an error at the bottom of it...

    There it was written "The drive for dev/mapper/cryptswap1 is not ready yet or not present"...

    Before installing Linux I did a bit of changes in my BIOS... what I did is, I reseted the bios settings to default by going to option "Load Optimal Defaults" hit F10 saved the settings and restarted my system. After this I carried on with my installation. (y)
    One thing more.....:)
    while installing Linux i checked "Keep Home Folder contents private" (something like that i guess).... and when the installation was complete and i was asked to restart the system i got this error message.

    I had checked this directory "dev/mapper/cryptswap1" and this file cryptswap1 is present there and there is one more file named "control".

    So is this a major error that will going to cause more system errors or instability in the future or it is alright and i shouldn't worry about it...????

    Well what i personally think is that this error has been caused because i checked that box against "Keep Home Folder Private". But the error is caused in folder "Dev" which contains info/config about devices/hardware so i'am confused...:confused:

    Any help will be greatly appreciated....:)
