This procedure (described in the wiki truecrypt topic) worked for me:If not listed, retry the TrueCrypt command after modprobe loop. Should it work, consider to add loop to the MODULES array in /etc/modules-load.d:# tee /etc/modules-load.d/truecrypt.conf <<< "loop"See the rc.conf and systemd topics in the wiki for more information. For more details on how TrueCrypt compares to other disk encryption solution, see Disk encryption#Comparison table. I created a new loop device by doing: Code: sudo losetup -f That created a /dev/loop0 and everything started working. this contact form
I'll try to take a look at writing some in the next few days. Does every data type just boil down to nodes with pointers?

Comment 14 Tom Horsley 2014-02-25 21:34:02 EST Since the config for kernel 3.13.4-200 still says this: CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LOOP_MIN_COUNT=0 I'm sure this bug still exists in the new kernel.

A hidden volume can not be distinguished from random data without access to a passphrase and/or keyfile. Failed To Setup Loop Device Or create some loop devices at startup: # echo "options loop max_loop=8" > /etc/modprobe.d/eightloop.conf Change max_loop=8 to the number of devices you need. Encrypting a file as a virtual volume The following instructions will create a file that will act as a virtual filesystem, allowing you to mount it and store files within the pop over to these guys The full partition mounts just fine, but the file fails with "Faile to set up a loop device".
I also mention in that issue the fact that much of documentation around mounting encrypted files as volumes is now misleading (or at least incomplete). The error message is "Failed to set up a loop device:" followed by the path of the file I am trying to mount.

Would you kindly give an example of what should be put there? Comment 7 Stéphane Couturier 2013-04-23 16:41:09 CEST Hi, I don't mind that it is closed. Offline #3 2012-03-03 00:44:58 Roken Member From: UK Registered: 2012-01-16 Posts: 755 Re: [SOLVED] Truecrypt - failed to set up a loop device Ahh.
Creating a new TrueCrypt container can be done using truecrypt, after which it can be opened using cryptsetup. I'm not sure why /dev/loop0-8 are not automatically created. Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free. Please test this kernel update (or newer) and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.
I will attempt the fixes outlined above. did you try creating a volume in a /file/ container? Take this into account if you're planning to use this software to share encrypted volumes between Windows and ArchLinux. his comment is here Are you new to LinuxQuestions.org?

start truecrypt (as root, or making the user has proper permissions) 2. I wonder, is this a problem in all zenwalk installations, or is mine corrupt? Last edited by kilgoretrout; 07-05-2010 at 05:11 PM.
