Yeah, that script that generated the crypttab was wrong, but I missed something after fixing it, and initramfs didn't helped (I think I forgot to mount the boot from /dev/sda3). So I recreated/reinstalled everything, and by modifying crypttab before initramfs, everything works now!

I just fixed the error by deleting partitions, recreating LVM, reinstalling the OS and doing a little change in chroot script that was used in tutorial. I will update the post in a minute. Thanks everyone for clearing few things up! And by the way, Mint is amazing, IMHO, cleanest and neatest GUI I've ever seen on any OS, including Windows and Mac!

This was a best guess attempt after update script failed. No, if I boot from /dev/sda there is an error, but I cannot remember what error. I created this file with a hand directly under /mnt/etc/crypttab. How does it have to look?

comment How can I make a public variable in Linux that all users would see?
There is a shell script that has a variable with a location to network machine. But upon bootup I need to change the IP in that script, because IP of target machine can change. I can query it via script though, but it would be great if I could do that just once, while booting.
