Converting TrueCrypt .deb into a TCE?
« on: January 23, 2009, 09:07:03 PM »
Is there any way to convert the truecrypt .deb installer into a TCE ? I really need a way to mount a truecrypt image in tinycore linux.

1) install compiletc
2) Use the script deb2targz from http://downloads.linuxfromscratch.org/deb2targz.tar.bz2

It changes the deb to a more familiar tarball. After that you can remove unneeded files from it, and create a tce.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Did this... I get:

gunzip: error inflating
tar: unrecognized option `--concatenate'

Sorry, there hasn't been much need to convert debs here, we prefer to compile from source.
Ah, it needs GNU tar also. Get advcomp.tce too and retry.

Ok thanks -- i've been able to extract just the executable to /usr/bin

Now, does TinyCore have a TCE for LibFuse2

If you mean fuse-2.x.x, then yes  :)

yay! so i have truecrypt running now... but I get an error during volume creation which states:

/proc/misc: No entry for device-mapper found
Is device-mapper driver missing from the kernel?
/proc/misc: No entry for device-mapper found
Is device-mapper driver missing from the kernel?
Failure to communicate with kernel device-mapper driver.
Incompatible libdevmapper 1.02.27 and kernel driver

So I suppose TinyCore does not have a dm_mod module I could just modprobe... Do I have to recompile the TinyCore linux kernel to make that module? or is there an easier way?

No other way, sorry.
