truecrypt: Permission denied
 
Hello,

I want to use truecrypt, but I am getting a permission denied.

Code:

sudo truecrypt -t container -p <passwd>

Enter mount directory [default]: /mnt/truecrypt1
Enter keyfile [none]:
Protect hidden volume (if any)? (y=Yes/n=No) [No]:
Error: Permission denied
/user/vln123456/devices/dev775_var/prog_dev775/patterns/lock/container

Does somebody have an idea what I am forgetting?

Thank you.

Try running this as ROOT instead of a sudoer.

Also if you have a window manager running, try running truecrypt either as root, or sudo truecrypt but try to run without the arguments you're showing and mount your volume using the interface.

Look further at the path after the "Permission denied" there. That's a user based path, /usr/vln123456 ... does that exist? Do you have permissions for that file and tree structure? That may be part of the problem; however I'd first try running as root.

When running as root, it is complaining about fuse.

Code:

[root@agille01 OTP_LOCK]# truecrypt -t container -p geheim
Warning: 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.
Enter mount directory [default]:
Enter keyfile [none]:
Protect hidden volume (if any)? (y=Yes/n=No) [No]:
Error: fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first
[root@agille01 OTP_LOCK]# modprobe fuse
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
[root@agille01 OTP_LOCK]#

It is the same when running the GUI.

building and installing fuse did the trick.
Now it works.

Thank you for your help.
