Cryptoloop, moving HDD to new system


If I move my encrypted HDD/partition to a new system should there be any special setup. I know the modules/kernel configuration must be there but is that all?

I used this tutorial

Now all I do to mount my encrypted partitions is mount /dev/xxx and enter password. Should the new system recognize the setup and do the same or would it not work because it was created in another system?

Thanks for your information.

Perhaps you could try to create a new small loop encrypted device that you could copy on an usb pen from one system on the other for see if is work well.

Why don't use TrueCrypt?
