Package: lvm-common
Version: 1.5.20
Severity: normal

When I boot my encrypted lvm I get an error and have to press enter to boot the system.

I have Etch on an USB notebook hdd (/dev/sdb). sdb2 is configured as lvm with a vg that contains one lv for etch 
(vg-root_crypt) excluding swap and one lv for swap (vg-swap_crypt). Both are encrypted, the lv root with a key that 
has to be entered at boottime and the lv swap with a random key.

At boottime I get the prompt to enter the LUKS passphrase. After that:

Begin: Running /scripts/local-premount ...
resume: libgcrypt version 1.2.3
resume: Could not stat the resume device file.
Please type in the file name to try again or press ENTER to boot the system:

After pressing enter the system boots normally.
