[SOLVED] partition type for encrypted swap

The wiki entry at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm … encryption under section "mkinitcpio hook" reads:

"...you will need to remove the partition, and then recreate it with no File System type. See Partitioning."

There's no explanation of what this means, and the "See Partitiioning" link points to a page with no mention of "no file system" type.

Can someone please explain this to me?

Re: [SOLVED] partition type for encrypted swap

The wording "file system type" is probably taken from parted.
What that wiki page was telling you is to change the partition type GUID. I changed that paragraph, now it only says to set the partition attribute 63 "do not automount". That can be done in gdisk. Activate the "extra functionality (experts only)" (key x) and then "set attributes" (key a) and set attribute 63.

Re: [SOLVED] partition type for encrypted swap

Well, it didn't feel like that's what it was telling me but I very much appreciate you doing so.
Many thanks for clearing this up, and for the edit to the wiki.
