Using TrueCrypt(R)'s encrypted system partitions from Linux, now with less bugs

Take note if you had problems using dmsetup-tc, the program I published last month that allows you to use TrueCrypt®’s encrypted system drives/partitions (also called the “pre-boot authentication” feature) from Linux environments (and possibly other Unices). I have found a few rather embarassing bugs in it that made it rather unusable in pretty much all cases (it’s actually really astonishing that it even worked for myself…). So if previously you got a cryptic message like “fatal error: Success”, now would be a great time to try again.

Download dmsetup-tc 0.2 or review the original article about dmsetup-tc that explains the details. As usual, feedback is appreciated.
