Can anyone here help with this:




I am a Knoppix 3.7 user who has just started dabbling with Ubuntu. The
install and everything went fine but I am stuck at being able to access
an encrypted partition that I created using Knoppix.

On knoppix i use the the follow to mount the encrypted partition

losetup -e aes /dev/loop1 /dev/hda7

mount -t reiserfs /dev/loop1 cryptoloop

On Ubuntu I use the same two statements above but the mount statement
generates an error (bad superblock etc). I can still use Knoppix on
that partition, so looks like the problem is with the losetup

Can anyone guide me on how to get this working. Using Knoppix 3.7 (2.4
kernel) and Ubuntu 5.04 (2.6 kernel).

many thanks!
