ecryptfs doesn´t like noauto and noatime

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have

merkaba:~> grep ecrypt /etc/fstab
/home/.ms               /home/ms                ecryptfs        
noatime,noauto  0       0

And get:

merkaba:~> mount /home/ms
Attempting to mount with the following options:
Error mounting eCryptfs: [-5] Input/output error
Check your system logs; visit <>

Still it works.

In dmesg I see:

[ 2657.888355] ecryptfs_parse_options: eCryptfs: unrecognized option 
[ 2657.888359] ecryptfs_parse_options: eCryptfs: unrecognized option 
[ 2657.913215] alg: No test for __gcm-aes-aesni (__driver-gcm-aes-aesni)

Thus I removed at least noatime, but then I still see:

[ 2839.460200] ecryptfs_parse_options: eCryptfs: unrecognized option 

On could argue about noatime when ecryptfs doesn´t override the setting of 
the underlying filesystem - i.e. doesn´t write the atime itself. But I 
think noauto should be silently ignored.

Without noatime it would ask me the passwort upon boot, but I do not like 
that since I do not use that user everytime.

I could use mounting via pam, but I like to have a different password for 
the user stored in /etc/shadow than the password from the filesystem
