I installed Leap 15 some weeks ago. I had trouble with btrfs/xfs in the last year and I used Ext4 for the root and the user partition this time. Furthermore, I use disk encryption.
Now I have three strange problems, no show stoppers but annoying effects:
I created an encrypted ext4 disk (external drive) some days later via Yast. Now, the boot procedure of the system is delayed for 90 seconds if the drive is disconnected. Otherwhise the system expects the password for the external drive. The drive is not part of fstab. I am confused, how can I disable this behavior? I found no settings entries in Yast for this, too.
If I connect the external drive, I can enter the password and the drive is mounted. However, the Plasma Device Notifiert shows the drive but I never leaves the “Accessing…” state. It never shows options like “Open in file manager” etc. But I can use the button for dismounting. Is this a known ext4 / Plasma bug or is it a problem based on a bad configuration setup?
A shutdown results in a final flood of messages (device-mapper: remove ioctl on cr_sda2 / system_root failed: Device or resource is busy. But finally the system shuts down. Is this a serios bug (can it destroy my partitions) or can I ignore it? I have no log file at the moment, but the situation is introduced by:
Stopping Monitoring of LVM2 mirrors, snapshots etc. using dmeventd or progress polling…
Stopped Remount Root and Kernel File Systems.
Reached target Shutdown.

Thank your very much for your help.
