Realcrypt: Mandriva’s Truecrypt - Howto

Filed under
HowTos

Truecrypt was rebranded Realcrypt on Mandriva to get around a licensing issue. This howto will apply to Truecrypt on any Linux distro, the only difference is the naming, so change it accordingly if you aren’t using Mandriva.

The howto will guide you through creating a normal volume with Realcrypt, formating it with ext3 so we can take advantage of unix file ownership allowing us to write to the volume as a normal user, mounting and un-mounting the volume. To keep things as simple as possible we’re going to work from the base of our home directory, you can modify the location, file names etc after you have an understanding of the process.

With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
