I think I'm finally getting the hang of compiling TrueCrypt (6.1a) on RHEL 4 (2.6.9-78.0.13.ELsmp)*. I am however having some post build issues.
When I attempt to mount the new volume I get a message:
Your system uses an old version of the Linux kernel.
Due to a bug in the Linux kernel, your system may stop
responding when writing data to a TrueCrypt volume.
This problem can be solved by upgrading the kernel
to version 2.6.24 or later.
Does anybody know what bug they are referring to and what is meant by "may" (RFC2119 does not seem to apply).
I don't really have the option of stepping up to RHEL 5 at this time. Can I fix it in 4?
*Kernel Source Extraction, Fuse, wxWidgets, encryption headers, RTFM/RTFRM etc.
Many thanks in advance.
