Veracrypt
« on: August 22, 2017, 06:50:38 PM »
veracrypt-cli and veracrypt-gtk have been added to the prebuilt repo.  Both have been tested on dCore-wheezy and dCore-artful in creating and mounting a file container so should work across all x86 dCore ports.  They are conflicting packages, choose one or the other, veracrypt-cli is smaller and cli mode only.  veracrypt-gtk can be used both as command line or graphical with X running. 

Those using the most recent release candidate will have raid-dm-KERNEL imported with the right package for the current running kernel.  Others need to import raid-dm-KERNEL with KERNEL being their current running kernel. 

Veracrypt is the successor to Truecrypt which is now unmaintained, but Truecrypt will remain in the repo.

veracrypt-cli and veracrypt-gtk are no longer conflicting packages.  veracrypt-gtk depends on veracrypt-cli which contains all the dependnecies needed but the GTK2 stuff that veracrypt-gtk needs to function.  This only grows the resulting veracrypt-gtk SCE by about 1 MB compressed data by adding the /usr/bin/veracrypt cli mode file and it's /usr/bin/veracrypt-cli symlink.  With verycript-gtk installed, the veracrypt or veracrypt-cli command from the veracrypt-cli package dependency will invoke the cli mode of this app, while veracrypt-gtk will bring up the GTK2 version of the app which is what the the menu or wbar icon will also do.  And it can also be used in cli mode with command line switches.  Better not to have conflicting packages when possible.
