Truecrypt NTFS filesystem mounting read only in Incognito


Hi all,

After using Truecrypt for the last month with no problem suddenly it mounts read only! This is really strange as I've been mounting the Incognito.iso in VMWare Player and I've had no problems with permissions writing to the truecrypt device before today.

I've tried mounting from the GUI and command line same result.

When I moun the volume I see that User: incognito Group: users

Permissions:
Owner: Can view content
Group: Forbidden
Others: Forbidden

Anyone had similar problems using Incognito? Looking on the Truecrypt forums it seems that a great number of Linux users have experienced the same problem. None of the solutions posted there work for me.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

Are you sure it ever has worked in Incognito? The kernel isn't compiled with write support for NTFS as it's pretty limited (it only supports overwriting existing files without changing the file size).

with incognito 2009.0, there is no more possibility of mounting ntfs drives, I noticed. Perhaps it's necessary to boot in "debugmode" to have the root account, then mounting could work.

You may need to do a
Code:
su -c 'modprobe ntfs'
(which requires debugmode) in order to get it to work.

Since the root password is empty all other users effectively have administrative privileges which potentially could lead to more severe damage to anonymity if any of them ever was compromised some how. Essentially it's like using the administrative account in Windows (i.e. the norm) which likely is the main reason we see so much trouble with Windows system security.
