Hi,

Does the last release of loop-AES v3.d contain the fix for the issue with recent libfuse versions? Ubuntu made a fix for this here:

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/loop-aes-utils/2.16.2-1ubuntu1

libfuse tries to execl /bin/mount with options --no-canonicalize and /bin/umount with --no-canonicalize --fake which are not recognized by the loop-aes patched utils. This breaks various programs using fuse. The Ubuntu source pacgage backports these options to the patched loop-AES utils.

This has been the subject of bugs on Red Hat, Debian, Gentoo and probably others. Ubuntu's is the only fix I have seen.

I was writing wappers and to run the appropriate version of the utils on my system when I found that Ubuntu had a fix.

Thanks

    Newer util-linux versions seem to support
    /bin/mount --no-canonicalize
    /bin/umount --no-canonicalize --fake

    The util-linux patch in loop-AES-v3.6d
    (util-linux-2.19.1.diff) and
    util-linux-2.20-20110905.diff.bz2 in
    http://loop-aes.sourceforge.net/updates/
    seem to support above mentioned options.

    Ubuntu seems to have backported those options
    to older version of util-linux.
