Intl. kernel patch and util-linux
I want to install a crypto filesystem using the international kernel
patch as distributed with potato non-US. I've applied the patch and
built the kernel with serpent, and everything appears to be fine;
/proc/cipher shows that serpent is available. However, when I run
losetup to enable serpent on the loopback device it reports that
it is unavailable :
# losetup -e serpent /dev/loop0 cryptfile
Unsupported encryption type serpent
My feeling is that the versions of the binaries for util-linux are not
patched to handle crypto. However, I installed from the non-US disks
(ala mirror.aarnet.edu.au), and the man pages discuss the crypto
options. dpkg reports :
# dpkg -l | grep util-linux
ii util-linux 2.10f-5.1 Miscellaneous system utilities.
Is there another version of util-linux I need to install?
