    Good morning!

    I want install truecrypt on my ubuntu 6.06 vps hosted bye tektonic.net.

    Following this tutorial: http://howtoforge.com/truecrypt_data_encryption


    I have some problems compile it from source code, because require me a libc.so.6 .

    Now I have tested to download kernel headers but the vps use a custom virtuozzo kernel:

    apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essentials
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    E: Couldn't find package linux-headers-2.6.9-023stab043.1-smp

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now, I have downloaded and installed without problems, a precompiled package of truecrypt but have the same problem with library when execute the binary:

    truecrypt --keyfile-create key.txt
    truecrypt: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by truecrypt)

    I have finded this post about same kernel problem but it works on fedore redhat.

    Thank you for your attention and I hope that someone will help me.
    Bye Josef. :(

    Hello.

    truecrypt package is not in official ubuntu repository

    apt-get install truecrypt
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Package truecrypt is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package truecrypt has no installation candidate

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/

    thanks. josef.

    and there's no dapper package no their homepage... just edgy and feisty

    http://www.truecrypt.org/downloads.php

    you could try the edgy one... maybe there aren't dependencies to fill so that could be working.

    oh well, there are dependencies... no clue how many they are, but that is one of them... you can also try to install that one.
