Bug#845376: debian-installer: don't add "swap" flag in crypttab if pasword is not random



Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I installed Debian (8.6) on a laptop.

I created two encrypted partition. One for the root filesystem and the
I marked in partman to be used as swap. I chose not to use /dev/urandom
as keyfile because I wanted the swap to hold hibernation image.

One of the flags in the fourth field in crypttab for the swap partition
is "swap". I am afraid (I haven't tested it) that boot scripts would run
mkswap and erase hibernation image.

The "swap" flag in the crypttab set only if one chooses to use random
password.
