Description of problem:
The attempt to create a crypted device mapping via cryptsetup fails with an
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC5T2 versions and newest rawhide...
Steps to Reproduce:
Following the steps in several howtos:
1.[root@scorp opt]# dd if=/dev/zero of=dmcrypttest bs=1024 count=10000
2.[root@scorp opt]# losetup /dev/loop0 dmcrypttest
3.[root@scorp opt]# cryptsetup create crypt1 /dev/loop0
Command failed: Invalid argument
Crypted dm mapping with name crypt1 created
Same results if I manually load dm-crypt and aes modules, create partitions, try
it on a lvm logical volume, specify crypto algorithm...
These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks
