    True-Crypt


    Well I tried to install it today but I have no kernel module for it. THere isn't even an rpm for it. Help would be appreciated.
    KDE's package manager gives this answer:
    Code:
    <nload/dkms-truecrypt-4.1-0.1.20060mdk.i586.rpm';echo RESULT=$?
    warning: ///home/zakaqere/Desktop/Download/dkms-truecrypt-4.1-0.1.20060mdk.i586.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID c9646bb4

    Here's a howto I ran across recently for installing it in Ubuntu. Maybe that will help you.

    Nope! Unfortunately I get that same error from ld
    Code:
    [root@localhost Download]# ../true*/Linux/build.sh
