I dont wan't to put 2 passwords in when booting

I encountered this the other day, I assumed this was happening because I encrypted swap drive (I am not very experienced with Linux so playing around teaching myself how to do things. I am swapping back from Dr4g0n1zed to Gnome DE because I like it more.

ANyway, my question if it doesn't interfere with Ops ticket is - I dont wan't to put 2 passwords in when booting my laptop so when I delete the /root/ drive to reinstall Garuda but with GnomeDE, is all I have to do is delete the swap partition and replace it with a new swap partition but with no encryption?

Can you explain what you mean by "two passwords"? When are you having to enter two passwords?

Sorry for delayed response, just had a visitor.

When I installed Garuda, I used manual partitions and encrypted the ramdisk, had to put a password in.

My first-time doing it. DIdn't need to do it, just wanted to.

Now when I boot laptop, the same splash screen as the other Ops post happens, and tapping escape shows a full screen terminal and a password prompt for ramdisk.

I enter password, then it loads straight to the system login screen and I enter that password.

My intention is to reinstall Garuda but with Gnome DE because I like it more.

This is normal. The first password is for encryption and the second is to login to your system.

If you are getting more password prompts than that, it is not normal.
