Subject description: Truecrypt does not open container
 

Hi,

I installed Truecrypt 7.1a on Puppy Precise successfully and created an encrypted file container - again successfully.

But when I try to mount this file container, truecrypt tells: "reload ioctl failed":
device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: file or directory not found.
Command failed

I tried this again with an encrypted drive, but got the same error message.

What's going wrong?

Thanks for hints!

Do you have Disable kernel cryptographic services clicked in the preferences? if not then do that and try again. Also make sure to use the nautilus hack or else you'll get the "cant find nautilus" error.
something similar to

rox $3
since truecrypt is calling
nautilus --no-default-window --no-desktop /mnt/truecrypt1

name it nautilus and place it in usr/local/bin/

The first thing worked well:
- Disable kernel cryptographic services

But perhaps I made something wrong with the second hint:
- nautilus --no-default-window --no-desktop /mnt/truecrypt1

I put this in a script in /usr/local/bin, named it "nautilus" and made it executable.
But when I click "Open" in Truecrypt to open the container, a never ending series of rox-windows comes up and fills the screen permanently - I found no way to stop the mess.
So at least I shut down the computer by pressing the I/O-button.

I must say that I am not familiar with scripts, so what did I do wrong?

Thanks again!

eh I'm not sure, I have a proper script somewhere that fixes the nautilus problem and if I find it I'll post it up.

Edit: Found it already. Replace everything in the script with the following

Code:
#!/bin/bash
exec rox $3
exit 0


This is what I use in Puppy Crypt and it works just fine.
