Last modified: 2013-03-07 21:04:04 EST
Description of problem:
man ecryptfs says:
The password should be specified in a file with passwd=(passphrase).
It is highly reccomended that the file be stored on a secure medium
such as a personal usb key.
* passfile should be there replaced to "passwd_file"
The password is specified through the specified file descriptor.
* passfd should be there replaced to "passwd_fd"
