    SubjectEncrypted File Systems Under Linux 2.2.10
    Hi,
    I have a 2.2.10 rh6 system at home. I have applied the international
    kernel patches for 2.2.10. I have recompiled, and, YES, the correct
    kernel is running. I have also applied the util-linux patch to the
    util-linux from the SRPM file and only installed "losetup" from the
    recompiled util-linux sources from there into /sbin/losetup. My problem
    is the following:

    [root@periscope mastersj]# losetup -e rc6 /dev/loop0 /dev/hdb4
    Password :
    ioctl: LOOP_SET_STATUS: Invalid argument
    [root@periscope mastersj]#


    Here's the ouput of "losetup" (which confirms it was rebuilt):

    [root@periscope mastersj]# losetup
    usage:
    losetup loop_device # give info
    losetup -d loop_device # delete
    losetup [ -e encryption ] [ -o offset ] loop_device file # setup
    where encryption is one of:
    no
    none
    xor
    DES
    twofish
    blowfish
    cast128
    serpent
    mars
    rc6
    dfc
    idea


    Thanks.
