I did exactly what you told me to do and I get after my
"/sbin/losetup"-command the following error string in live.log:
Error: Unable to detect home directory for uid 0

I haven't found anything about that error with the missing home dir in
Is there something I'm doing wrong? gpg is statically compiled from
source and I installed all what is written in the loop-aes readme.
Without gpg I can decrypt my squashfs on boottime.
greets and thanks so far
