I am trying to install ecryptfs on Cent0s 5.5. Thee process is:

yum install ecryptfs-utils

It seems to run fine.

However when I do

modprobe ecryptfs  

It returns FATAL: Module ecryptfs not found.

Any clue would be helpful.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

See if the file /lib/modules/uname -r/kernel/fs/ecryptfs/ecryptfs.ko exists. If it does not, then check the version of the kernel you're running and see if the kernel-uname -r package contains the ecryptfs.ko file.

(Where you see uname -r in the text above, replace it with the output of the command).
