Truecrypt problem. No available loopback interface
I've just installed TrueCrypt 4.0 on my windows system. Of course it would be nice to use it from my linux system as well, and here's where the fun starts:
- my system was slackware 10.2 with default kernel 2.4.31, truecrypt needs kernel 2.6.8 or higher
i decided to download the latest stable kernel 126.96.36.199 and although i had bad experiences with self-compiled kernels in the past, this was pretty easy.
Once the kernel was installed i ran truecrypt installer again. Now it complains that it needs dmsetup. After some searching i came to figure out that it is the device-mapper. So i downloaded and installed device-mapper. Truecrypt is still complaining. It appears that my newly created kernel didn't support it.
After adding LVM support to the kernel this problem was finally solved.
Truecrypt is installed successfully but when i try to mount my encrypted container it gives the following errormessage: truecrypt: No free loopback device available for file-hosted volume
Of course i ran truecrypt as root, so it shouldn't be an access issue.
Since lo is available as always i don't really understand what to do with this. So to make a long story short ;-)
Anyone has any idea on how to solve this 'little' problem?
Thanks in advance!
