PostPosted: Wed 26 Mar 2008, 21:27    Post subject: re-formatting a truecrypt drive  

First, thank you very much for these files! I use TrueCrypt all the time.

I made a new TrueCrypt volume to find out it is created as a fat volume that only takes 8 characters! That won't work for me. I ended up booting up Windows and reformatting the encrypted drive with ntfs. I would prefer to format it with a linux file system.

I started to use fdisk, but backed out. It said that I "must set cylinders." At this point I became uncertain if fdisk is the correct tool.

In the terminal window can I type, "fdisk /path/encrypted_volume" and then proceed through the steps involved with formatting? Is there a graphical tool that I could format this with?

Thanks!

Yup, you can do that, also mke2fs and mkfs.ext3.

I had the same problem, but solved it by entering utf8 in the mount options area of the TrueCrypt preferences. That fixed things for me.

Thanks for your reply.

In the terminal window I typed in
# mkfs.ext3 /path/truecryptfile
--It responded with, "...is not a block special device. Proceed anyway?"
--I said yes.
# mkfs.ext3: Device size reported to be zero. Invalid partition specified, or partition table wasn't reread after running fdisk, due to a modified partition being busy and in use. You may need to reboot to re-read your partition table.

I tried this with fdisk and mke2fs, but got similar results. I didn't have any files open, so I'm not sure what it means when it says that the partition is being busy and in use.

???

Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?

PostPosted: Fri 28 Mar 2008, 00:06    Post subject:  

if your using 4.3a its /dev/mapper/truecrypt0 if your only using 1 truecrypt file.

you could check the path by typing mount in a terminal.

Code:
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/root on / type ext3 (rw,data=ordered)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
shmfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
none on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
/dev/hda5 on /mnt/hda5 type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered)
/dev/mapper/truecrypt0 on /mnt/secure type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered)

PostPosted: Fri 28 Mar 2008, 04:48    Post subject: reformatting a truecrypt volume  

Wolf Pup,

Thanks for your help on this. I have 5.1a installed, by the way.

OK. I type "mount" and get this...

Code:

...
truecrypt on /tmp/.truecrypt_aux_mnt1 type fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other)
/dev/loop2 on /mnt/truecrypt1 type msdos (rw,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=cp437)


I then try the following...

Code:

# mkfs.ext3 /dev/loop2
mke2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)
/dev/loop2 is mounted; will not make a filesystem here!
# umount /mnt/truecrypt1
# mkfs.ext3 /dev/loop2
mke2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)
mkfs.ext3: Device size reported to be zero.  Invalid partition specified, or
        partition table wasn't reread after running fdisk, due to
        a modified partition being busy and in use.  You may need to reboot
        to re-read your partition table.


Any ideas?

Thanks!

Start truecrypt and when you enter your password for the file, click options, under filesystem, check "do not mount". Enter you password and then try to format with mkfs.ext3

When I try this I get the following message:
Quote:

ParameterIncorrect at
TrueCrypt::CoreUnix::MountVolume:421


I opened up a rxvt window and typed "mount*, but as I assumed my truecrypt volume wasn't listed.

After this occurs, TrueCrypt will no longer mount volumes. If I go to the the Process Lister and kill the TrueCrypt process I can then restart TrueCrypt and everything seems to work fine.

I have tried this will different volumes, by the way, and they all produce the same results.

Thank for your help on this.

I have reformatted container files successfully with TrueCrypt 4.3a, but haven't gotten it to work with 5.1a.

Guess I will create my TrueCrypt containers in a version of puppy that has the old truecrypt installed.

Thanks!

PostPosted: Tue 08 Apr 2008, 00:39    Post subject: Installing Truecrypt  

I am new to puppy, so excuse me.

Downloaded and installed the files you provides:

truecrypt-5.1a.pet
truecrypt_guide-5.1a.pet

After rebooting I find truecrypt in Menu/utlity, but it does not work. If I write "truecrypt" on the terminal,it gives:

# truecrypt
truecrypt: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.1' not found (required by truecrypt)
truecrypt: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by truecrypt)
#
It seems some libraries are lacking. Anyone knows what to do?
Thanks

Hi Wolf Pup,

i have installed both 5.1-pets. The Guide could not be opened from the trucrypt-menu -> Help -> User's Guide.

Code:
Error: Couldn't open file '/root/"/usr/share/truecrypt/doc/TrueCrypt User Guide.pdf'


It seems that:
1. Trucrypt looks at the wrong path
/root/"/usr/share/truecrypt/doc/ instead of /usr/share/truecrypt/doc/
2. The pdf is named wrong (or truecrypt searches for the wrong)
TrueCrypt User Guide-5.1a.pdf instead of TrueCrypt User Guide.pdf

Cheers
aragon
