Veracrypt?
« on: October 30, 2016, 11:21:30 AM »
Could VeraCrypt ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VeraCrypt ) be added? You should be able to copy at least some of the info from the existing TrueCrypt ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TrueCrypt ) extension. Thanks!

Just to be clear, On 28 May 2014, the TrueCrypt website announced that the project was no longer maintained and recommended users to find alternative solutions. VeraCrypt -- basically a fork of TrueCrypt with more security holes fixed after an independent code audit -- is the most popular of those solutions. VeraCrypt can open TrueCrypt encrypted volumes but TrueCrypt cannot open VeraCrypt encrypted volumes.

perhaps you could have a go at making the extension yourself?

I will try, but I will be facing a learning curve. I searched an found http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:creating_extensions so I will start there.

Was I wrong to post an extension request?

I have been struggling with making this work, and so far have failed. Either I convince someone to do this (it should be a simple edit of the existing Truecrypt package) or I will have to go back to using Ubuntu. A shame, really; tiny core does everything I need to do other than accessing my Veracrypt partition. :(

If you post what is giving you problems, someone here may be able to help you. If you are getting compiler errors, post
a copy of the error messages.

personally i don't use veracrypt, but luks/cryptsetup stuff is included in our packages. in case other people might need something functionally related it works well for me.

even the cli version of veracrypt seems to need wxwidgets?
