bestcrypt_1.5 and 2.6 kernel problem


I've just intalled jetico bestcrypt 1.5 on my computer, I'm running 2.6.1 kernel and it should be supported. Everything compiles cleanly, I can modprobe all bestcrypt moules (they are .o instead of .ko but I don't think this is a problem, because when I do lsmod I see modules loaded), but when I try to run bctool, I get "Kernel modules not loaded" error.
I've tried to compile it under 2.4.24 kernel and everything was working ok.

any idea?

bctool and 2.6.*

You are missing the /dev/bcrypt* devices. This is because of the new sysfs that 2.6 has introduced. The devices are under /sys/block/bcrypt*/dev now.

To make bctool work again do this as root:
cd /dev
mknod bcrypt0 b 0xBC 0
mknod bcrypt1 b 0xBC 1
mknod bcrypt2 b 0xBC 2
mknod bcrypt3 b 0xBC 4
mknod bcrypt4 b 0xBC 4
and so on, onto 15

then bc will find the devices


not sure if the devices should be created as:
mknod bcrypt0 b 0xBC 0
mknod bcrypt1 b 0xBC 0
mknod bcrypt2 b 0xBC 0
mknod bcrypt3 b 0xBC 0
mknod bcrypt4 b 0xBC 0

if you have problems with mounting more than one container at once then try this method just remove the devices and create them again
