Bug Description


I'm still experiencing the ecryptfs-utils passphrase symptoms as described
I've upgraded ecryptfs-utils through the normal weekly update and
re-booted a couple of times:

$ sudo apt-cache policy ecryptfs-utils
[sudo] password for alistair:
  Installed: 107-0ubuntu1.1
  Candidate: 107-0ubuntu1.1
  Version table:
 *** 107-0ubuntu1.1 0
        500 vivid-updates/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     107-0ubuntu1 0
        500 vivid/main amd64 Packages

Swap is still showing as unencrypted:

$ sudo swapon -s
Filename Type Size Used Priority
/dev/sda10 partition 7895036 0 -1

I haven't seen any additional post-installation instructions, so assume
that the upgrade itself should take care of the issue. I don't believe
I'm using LVM, as described in
but have attached fstab for info.

My apologies if this is a duplicate - my internet connection dropped out while submitting the first time. I tried to search for the report and couldn't find it, so hopefully the first one failed.

Realised that I had forgotten to attach fstab.
