Problems mounting Truecrypt volume in Suse 10


Hi guys!

Can someone help me figure out what is wrong with my installation of Truecrypt on Suse 10? I have installed Truecrypt 4.1 using the rpm provided with no issues. When I attempt to mount a Truecrypt volume, however, it only displays the man page. Moreover, when I try to view all of the mounted volumes (truecrypt -vl) I get the following error message:

#truecrypt -vl
truecrypt: Kernel module not loaded

All commands, by the way, are being performed as root. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks.

Leslie

Truecrypt Problem solved!

I changed my Truecrypt volume from a two-word name to a simple four-letter name and found that the volume mounted perfectly. Go figure... Maybe the programmers are die-hard MS-DOS fans?

This is a great little program, by the way!

If the file name has a spaces in it, you must use use quotes, e.g.

Code:
"file name"
, or use the backslash escape character, e.g.

Code:
file\ name
