I see an issue with systemd-197 on one of my gentoo systems.
Encrypted swap doesn't get enabled correctly as mentioned below.
In the git-repo of systemd I read in the TODO-file:
> swap units that are activated by one name but shown in the kernel
> under another are semi-broken
Might that be related to the behavior I see?
I quote my posting to the gentoo-users-ml:
> I always get timeouts as systemd waits for the decrypted
> mapper-device to come up. Swap doesn't get enabled but when it
> finally continues to boot I see the valid mapper-device there and
> can "swapon" it manually.
> # cat /etc/crypttab
> /dev/urandom swap,cipher=aes-cbc-essiv:sha256,size=256
> # grep swap /etc/fstab /dev/mapper/swap none swap defaults 0 0
> AFAI understand these 2 lines should be enough to let systemd
> generate its relevant unit-files etc.
