Truecrypt: Kernel module not loaded


Hello,
i tried to use truecrypt to copy data of my truecrypt partition onto my other hdd

im using debian(sarge) and installed truecrypt via the
truecrypt_4.0-1_i386.deb

everything worked just fine, but everytime i try to mount the device i always get

truecrypt: Kernel module not loaded

i allready did
modprobe truecrypt
modprobe vfat
modprobe ntfs
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.8-2-386/extra/truecrypt.ko

no errors with that commands

but it still doesnt work,
does anyone know what to do now?

thank you

are you able to find truecrypt in the list when you type 'lsmod'?

try to put it in the kernel.

I don't know TrueCrypt, but it does occur to me that maybe it's looking for a cipher algorithm module that isn't loaded .. and that isn't being auto-loaded. Is there any clue whatever as to the name of the missing module?

Probably it checks using lsmod program, which is not in the $PATH.
Try to run truecrypt when root, I mean real root with su -.

At least on my box:
/dev/mapper/truecrypt0 on /develop/loc/igor/v533 type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hda12 on /xfs/bigfs type xfs (rw,dmapi,mtpt=/xfs/bigfs)
/dev/hda9 on /xfs/small type xfs (rw,dmapi,mtpt=/xfs/small)
[root@home ~]# truecrypt -d
truecrypt: Kernel module not loaded
[root@home ~]# su -
[root@home ~]# truecrypt -d
[root@home ~]#
