kerneli.org losetup migration


I have a backup DVD I am trying to access which I encrypted with the old (apparently broken) Linux 2.4 Kerneli.org cryptoloop api. Since kernerli.org no longer has a working webserver, I havn't been able to obtain their patched version of losetup (the one that takes the -k option, I believe) that I used to create the volume. Is there still a way to get this tool, or, better yet, a way to access my filesystem without it?

bump.

Nothing? Even a sloppy, one-time hack that would allow me to get this volume into a more modern format would be acceptable.

Got it
It seems Gentoo provides a special binary called "losetup-old-crypt" that gets made if you build util-linux with the "old-crypt" USE flag. This, combined with an external key hasher, successfully attached the volume. The actual command line ended up being this for my blowfish128 encrypted image:

Code:
hashalot -n 16 rmd160 | /sbin/losetup-old-crypt -e blowfish-128 -p 0 /dev/loopX image_or_device
