the stable version 1.1-0 of ScramDisk for Linux has been released.
It has reworked the kernel driver and now handles input and output
requests in separate kernel threads for each container. Thereby,
input/output errors are fixed which occasionally occured in previous
versions under heavy load. Moreover, handling of large containers of
2 GB and above has been fixed. Finally, the passphrase input lines
for scramdisk containers are now restricted to 39 characters each.
This was 40 characters previously. By this change full compatibility
with the windows scramdisk v3.01r3c is achieved
This version is available for CentOS, Debian, Fedora, SuSE and Ubuntu
distributions. It comprises a kernel driver scramdisk.ko (scramdisk.o
for systems with kernel 2.4.x), the graphical user interface scramdisk
and four small utilities sdcreate, sdchange, sdmount and sdumount.
After a container has been mounted any data could be read from or
written to the file system inside the container ransparently with
help of the driver scramdiks.ko. By unmounting the container the file
system becomes inaccessible again. This can be done by the Mount and
Unmount buttons of the graphical user interface or by sdmount and
The kernel version is part of the filename of binary packages and
must match the kernel version of the system it is installed on.
