cryptsetup luksFormat gives me segmentation fault

Hi! thats my problem

bash-3.1# cryptsetup -s 256 -y luksFormat /dev/sdc1

This will overwrite data on /dev/sdc1 irrevocably.

Are you sure? (Type uppercase yes): YES

What version of Slackware are you using (is it 12.1)?

Can you post result of following command to see what partition is /dev/sdc1:

fdisk -l

This is a confirmed bug of the static version of cryptsetup. Slackware includes both the static and the dynamic version, but cryptsetup is a softlink to cryptsetup.static. This should work (at least, it worked for me and some others here at LQ):

cryptsetup.dynamic -s 256 -y luksFormat /dev/sdc1
Good luck,
