    What you describe sounds suspiciously like the method for setting the refresh rate in Mac OS X (System Preferences -> Displays), not Ubuntu or any Linux variant. Are you, indeed,...

    Well, not sure. I guess I'm just suggesting that no one may know, as this post was created over a year ago.

    Do post back and let us know!

    Need more details. What's your fdisk -l output. What's in menu.lst? The blog post seems to be booting a safeboot disk from a linux partition on the disk in sda6. If you just...

    You should see something about asking if you want full disk encryption with dm-crypt/LUKS and possibly a mention of LVM (logical volume management). Googling around should get you to some more...

    Yup -- I'd like to be able to access bidirectionally if possible. Though I'm now leaning toward just keeping all my files on Linux. I currently have an 80gb hard drive in my Macbook, have about a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Linux version of TrueCrypt Hidden OS

    Ok. That's helpful.

    Here's an easy question for you: did you put /boot on it's own partition or is it all in one partition? The /boot directory needs to be on a separate unencrypted partition. If...

  14. [ubuntu] Re: When I try to boot Ubuntu through rEFIt, it boots Windows instead

    Alrighteo. For your first question, you'll want to do this:

    - boot into an Ubuntu CD
    - choose the option to try Ubuntu
    - Mount /dev/sda3 (the Ubuntu partition on your hard drive, the live CD...

    Hope whatever you do works out for you! Good luck.
  16. [ubuntu] Re: When I try to boot Ubuntu through rEFIt, it boots Windows instead

    Hmmm. Maybe it should be /dev/disk0 instead of rdisk0? Not sure. The diskutil command is quite promising. We just need the specifics.

    Though... if rEFIt says they're good to go, perhaps it's in...

    Yeah, not exactly sure all that would happen. They suggest that you try to use them both fairly regularly so that when you pop open the "dummy" outer volume there's not a bunch of crap that's been...

    [ubuntu] Re: Linux version of TrueCrypt Hidden OS

    Agreed re. stenography... but you keep making the assumption that the hidden volume will be a visible file that is in some way differentiated from the "non-hidden" volume.

    This is wrong.

    I've wondered about this. Can you verify this somehow? If the "crypt" within a "crypt" shows up as any kind of partition in the table, would your statement be false? Same goes for a "crypt"...
