Cryptsetup (x86 and x86_64)

This section is designed for your 'porteus build scripts' which create Porteus modules for your favorite applications. Scripts should work like the well-known 'SlackBuilds' with minimum user interaction.

Cryptsetup (x86 and x86_64)

Post#1 by BlackRider » 18 Jul 2011, 11:19

LUKS is a standard for cross-platform hard disk encryption.
It provides secure management of multiple userpasswords and
stores setup information in the partition header.
LUKS for dm-crypt is now implemented in cryptsetup replacing the
original cryptsetup. It provides all the functionally of the
original version plus all LUKS features.

cryptsetup home:
I have packaged this PorteusBuild pack to emulate the packaging process
of SlackBuilds. To compile and create the package, just place the source
tarball in the same folder as the uncompressed script
(cryptsetup.PorteusBuild). Then, execute the script with root privileges.

A package will be generated in /tmp

The source is not included in the build pack. You can download it using the link I provide you with.

The source has been taken from the Slackware 13.37 DVD

cryptsetup website:
cryptsetup's source: ... .0.tar.bz2
MD5 checksum for the source: b4ac29d3d8b4771a457a8ceaa8c6aa13
SHA512 checksum for the source:7af9b26581d544e6207ad126e0ee4c

You can get the build pack here: ... sBuild.tar

It has been tested on Porteus v1.0 x86_64, but this pack should do well on traditional x86.
