Subject: [gentoo-user] Problems with loop-aes
Date: Tue, 06 May 2014 18:31:23
1 I'm trying to set up USB-key-encryption for use with a laptop. I'm
2 running mdev instead of udev on the laptop, so lvm doesn't work. I did
3 manage to create /dev/mapper/control by running "dmsetup mknodes"
4 manually, but still got error messages about being unable to initialize
5 the encryption backend.
7 Moving on to using loop-aes, I emerged sys-fs/loop-aes-3.7a and used
8 the "loop-aes" variant commands whilst following the the only docs that
9 I could find, namely
10 I ran into problems when trying to mount the loop device. Here's what
11 happens (passphrase is properly entered)...
13 [aa1][root][~] loop-aes-losetup -F /dev/loop0
14 Password:
15 ioctl: LOOP_MULTI_KEY_SETUP_V3: Invalid argument
17 Anybody have any ideas?
