Hibernate not working after install with fde
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I installed solus with full disk encryption selected in the installer. After the installation was complete everything seems to work great, except for hibernate.
When I select the hibernate option in the shutdown menu, it just locks the screen instead of hibernating.

During the install I noticed that it only created a 4gb swap partition, while I have 16gb of RAM, so I suppose that this is causing the problem.

The problem with FDE is that systemd does not mount swap partition at all. You can enable it on your own by adding it to fstab, check

Ok, but isn't the size of the swap partition still a problem even after having it mounted at boot?
If I would gave let's say 10gb of my RAM used, 4gb of swap won't be enough to hibernate correctly if I understand this correctly.
