Description Piergiorgio Sartor 2009-02-18 11:40:50 EST
Description of problem:
In order to setup the automatic mount on login of the encrypted ~/Private folder, the tool ecryptfs-setup-private is used.
This tool, among all, creates the folder ~/Private, with permission 500 (r-x------), and it puts some links to files inside this folder.
These links are visible when ~/Private is not mounted (or, better, when ~/.Private is not mounted on ~/Private).

These linked files are:

Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop ->
README.txt -> /usr/share/ecryptfs-utils/ecryptfs-mount-private.txt

Unfortunately, these file do not exists.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always on clean setup. If ~/Private already exists, being non writable, results in the error: Cannot create symbolic link (or similar).

Steps to Reproduce:
Execute "ecryptfs-setup-private" from clean setup, i.e. without ~/Private folder.
Actual results:
Everything is setup fine, but the links inside ~/Private point to non-existing files.

Expected results:
The file linked should be there.

Additional info:
Version 61 of the ecryptfs-utils was creating a link to /sbin/mount.ecryptfs_private, which was OK.

I guess the two missing files just need to be added to the rpm package, if they exist somewhere.
