I'm trying to set up USB-key-encryption for use with a laptop. I'm
running mdev instead of udev on the laptop, so lvm doesn't work. I did
manage to create /dev/mapper/control by running "dmsetup mknodes"
manually, but still got error messages about being unable to initialize
the encryption backend.
Moving on to using loop-aes, I emerged sys-fs/loop-aes-3.7a and used
the "loop-aes" variant commands whilst following the the only docs that
I could find, namely http://loop-aes.sourceforge.net/loop-AES.README
I ran into problems when trying to mount the loop device. Here's what
happens (passphrase is properly entered)...
[aa1][root][~] loop-aes-losetup -F /dev/loop0
ioctl: LOOP_MULTI_KEY_SETUP_V3: Invalid argument
Anybody have any ideas?
