Status of aes in Debian/Ubuntu?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Been away from the list for awhile and you went and moved the list on me! Yesterday I pulled out my notes from the last time I set up a crypto disk and found that basically, nothing worked. The losetup lists all the appropriate crypto types in its Man page but when I try to actually use AES256, it throws a fit. When I look in modules for the current kernel, I do not see a module for aes at all. I might also note that I was surprised to find the -k switch for specifying key size is gone. I tried downloading a package with aes in it, but it turns out to require local build. So... I tried that. I discovered that the module failed to declare kpkg as a prerequisite. I eventually figured that error out and selected it manually. And then I tried everything I could think of short of going 'all the way in': I tried module-assistant; I tried m-a; I tried the commands from the INSTALL file one at a time. All of them failed. This is just SOOooo 1999... aren't things supposed to get better with time? ;-) I would be happy to supply any information required or to run a few tests in between other work. Test server is an ancient (perhaps 2003) box with Ubuntu Oneiric, fully up to date. If I want to use something like this for a production environment, it has to be solid and update and work forever into the future. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-crypto" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
