Default Problem with "Protect Your Files With TrueCrypt on Debian"

Hi,

I'm using TrueCrypt 6.1a. I'm using Debian 5 and the kernel is 2.6.26-1-686.
I'm using NTFS-3G driver Version 1.2531. I see that the newest version of the NTFS-3G driver is Release 2009.2.1.
I don't know if my problem is the result of using the older Version 1.2531.

I'm writing because I have two TrueCrypt files formatted as NTFS.
The first is a 20 MB file.
The second is 150 GB file.

In Windows XP I can mount both TrueCrypt files as read-write.

My problem is that in Linux I can't mount both TrueCrypt files as read-write.
I can mount the 20 MB file as read-write. But, I can't mount the 150 GB file read-write. I can only mount the 150 GB file read-only.

Do you think the problem is the NTFS-3G driver is too old? If that's the case I'll need to figure out how to replace the old driver version with the newer driver version.

I looked at http://www.ntfs-3g.org/quality.html and have also read the NTFS-3G Release History but I can't find the solution.

Thank you.

I've never read log files before. But, since you asked for information about my log files I looked at the files in the /var/log directory. And in that directory I saw changes in messages, syslog and debug. Those messages are below.

A) /var/log# tail -f messages

I googled to try to find where, if anywhere, TrueCrypt would store its log files but I wasn't able to find that information.

Unfortunately I'm no TrueCrypt expert, and from the logs I can't see anything that gives me a clue what is going wrong.

Hi falko,

That's OK. I appreciate your time and assistance. If I ever figure out the solution I'll update this post.

I switched from Debian 5 to Ubuntu 8.10 and that fixed the problem.

Ubuntu 8.10 is using, ntfs-3g 1.2506 external FUSE 27 - Third Generation NTFS Driver.
