TrueCrypt: problem running build.sh; cannot configure kernel source
I've been trying to install TrueCrypt. Since in the download site there is no version for my operating system (I am running Kubuntu 6.06 64-bit) I had to compile from source.
I followed the instructions found on the german Ubuntu site , meaning I previously installed the linux-source using Adept, unpacked the tarball, created a link to the kernel sources
Then I typed this on the console:
What do this errors mean and how can I solve this problem?
Thank you in advance for your answers!
I don't know about the most recent version of True Crypt. I am using the v4.2a version. I know that what you are doing would not be correct for v4.2a. The top level of the untarred archive has a file called Readme.txt. That has the instructions for installing the software.
I wouldn't bother putting the untarred directory for True Crypt in the /usr/scr tree. I always untar the source files under /root/bin so I end up with /root/bin/truecrypt-4.2a. You don't need to keep the source files on your system after you have installed True Crypt, although I do keep them in /root/bin/truecrypt-4.2a.
The version of True Crypt that I use says to cd into the truecrypt-4.2a/Linux directory and run ./install.sh. Of course this is all a lot easier if you use a version of Linux that allows you to log in as root. :) You can always keep the source files in a directory under your normally privileged user account. You only need to be root when you install the software.
