Using TrueCrypt with opensuse 13.1

According to an announcement that I saw today, it is now possible to use “cryptsetup” with “truecrypt” volumes.

The announcement was on the lizards mailing list, and also showed up in opensuse forums.

I have not tested this.  The “man” pages for “cryptsetup” do explain how to use it to access a truecrypt volume.  There is currently no support for creating a “truecrypt” volume with “cryptsetup”.

The other way of using “TrueCrypt” is to install “realcrypt” from the packman repos (also not tested).
