Typo in Lab 10.2 - sudo cryptsetup luksClose swapcrypt

ArlenNY Posts: 4

I'd like to submit a bug for the LFCS 201 course lab 10.2. During step 6 the second in a sequence of commands has a typo (below): 

sudo cyyptsetup luksClose swapcrypt


should be: 


sudo cryptsetup luksClose swapcrypt  



*Also There are many instances in the course labs where instructions are too vague and don't help complete the task well enough. For example, in the instructions for step 6 (above) say to validate the configuration by rebooting. Validation occurs by rebooting but also by logging back in and typing a specific command to verify the newly created, encrypted swap partition is activated at boot.  I believe the command would be cat /proc/partitions but if there's a more informative or accurate command to verify please confirm:




If I can help make the course lab more complete or descriptive please let me know how I contribute. I've completed several labs while encountering many issues due to the lack of detail and working in a Virtualized environent. I would love the opportunity to share my findings with other engineers to review and possibly include in future versions of these labs.


Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hi Arlenny,

    Yes, you are right and that's a typo. I'm going to report it so we can fix it.

    Also, thanks for your offer! I think it may be a kind of complicate thing to find a description that will satisfy all the students.
