I finally got time to get bestcrypt 1.6 compiled for the 2.4.20 kernel, and it seems to work.

It has run into one problem though ... no /sbin/mkfs. bctool makes the container file, but can't format it.

The various other mkfs files, mkfs.msdos, mkfs.ext2 etc are there, but its stuck without plain old mkfs.

Anyone any suggestions?

Cheers,

Mike.

This post doesn't list mkfs as part of native coreutils, but perhaps it was an over sight? Worth looking into..

Well, no matter. I created a Bestcrypt container on my desktop machine and copied it to the Z. Works well! So this'll have to do until I can find an answer to the mkfs problem.

If anyone wants to put the attached ipk on the pdaxrom contrib site, please do.

Cheers,

Mike.

Some time ago, I remember building bestcrypt for 2.4.20, and I was patching the code to work without /sbin/mkfs.

CODE
root@zaurus:/tmp$ bctool new test -a des -s 10M
Enter password:
Verify password:

Please do not forget to format the container
root@zaurus:/tmp$ bctool format test -t ext3
Enter password:
mke2fs 1.34 (25-Jul-2003)
Filesystem label=
OS type: Linux
Block size=1024 (log=0)
Fragment size=1024 (log=0)
2560 inodes, 10240 blocks
512 blocks (5.00%) reserved for the super user
First data block=1
2 block groups
8192 blocks per group, 8192 fragments per group
1280 inodes per group
Superblock backups stored on blocks:
       8193

Writing inode tables: done
Creating journal (1024 blocks): done
Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done

This filesystem will be automatically checked every 27 mounts or
180 days, whichever comes first.  Use tune2fs -c or -i to override.
root@zaurus:/tmp$


that's my package: http://z.drun.net/packages/bestcrypt_1.6.7_armv5tel.ipk

it comes with /etc/rc.d/init.d/bcrypt start|stop|restart for automatic loading of the modules.
