again with the crypsetup's warning.

Asked by vigilian on 2019-01-08

cryptsetup: WARNING: failed to detect canonical device of /dev/nvme0n1p3
cryptsetup: WARNING: could not determine root device from /etc/fstab

those again occurs on 18.04. I don't use cryptsetup but I wanted to use overlayroot at some point and overlayroot requires crypsetup and overlayroot is required by ubuntu-server.... Those Warning are very upsetting. Especially when cryptsetup is supposed to not be pocking aroung with warning messages even when no drives are encrypted. It should just be silent.
So is it somewhere a file to vie it some information to shut it up or not?

I suggest you report a bug.

I don't see how they can be "upsetting"

and 15 others on askubuntu, stackexchange and other forums.

This bug or bad coding practice has been around for years now since it has been reported even in 12.04 at least apparently.
And still the same bug/ "feature" (LOL) is still there... and still the maintainer was not able to reproduce the bug while countless people have reported this thing... this is why it's upsetting.
But thanks for the suggestion

Severity: minor

Not upsetting. There are major and critical issues that need actual attention

Can you help with this problem?
