cryptsetup - command failed: invalid argument
Currently using Debian unstable, kernel 2.6.11-1-k7.
I'm not sure what happened between today and a couple days ago, but any insight would help.
I was just trying to mount my encrypted partition (/dev/hda4) and received "Command failed: Invalid argument" from cryptsetup.
I used the command properly, just like many times before:
$ sudo /sbin/cryptsetup create cryptonite /dev/hda4
I've also received this as root when running /etc/init.d/cryptdisks
Crisis averted. Solution found.
After downgrading to libdevmapper1.01.00-4 I was able to mount my encrypted partition.
Hi - I have this same problem, but it won't go away with different versions of libdevmapper (sys-fs/device-mapper in Gentoo).
I really need a fix because all my backup partitions are encrypted - so I can't make or restore from backups until crypsetup is working again...
Using sys-fs/device-mapper-1.01.03 and sys-fs/cryptsetup-luks-1.0.1-r1
If anyone thinks I should ask this in a new thread, please say so and I will. (And I'll delete this post/link it to the new one)
I also have seen this.
cryptsetup create hda8 /dev/hda8
Command failed: Invalid aguement
Strangly however the following does work!!!
cryptsetup create x /dev/hda8
Also x_hda8 works too!
It looks like it is reacting to something about the label!
All in all it is very very weird!
