Hi - I am trying to determine if this issue applies to me. Is this the right place to ask some questions? (newbie)

My system:
$ uname -a: Linux 2.6.27-7-generic #1 SMP x86_64 GNU/Linux
$ dpkg -s cryptsetup
Package: cryptsetup
Status: install ok installed
Architecture: amd64
Version: 2:1.0.6-6ubuntu2.2

I'm guessing I either need the patch or a backport. If I need to use the patch, how would I do so?

I just installed Ubuntu on this server. I have not had problems from package updates yet. I'm guessing I will if I don't use the patch...

At the moment, I am using /dev/disk/by-uuid/ in both fstab and crypttab. It is working.

However, I would like to switch all volume references to labels. Will that present any problems? Thanks.
