I have an encrypted folder that I want to decrypt (using ecryptfs). I went over all the standard procedures mentioned here.
Everything seems to go well (getting passphrase, then adding it a keyring and finally attempting to mount using ecrptfs) until I try to mount. It fails saying file not found.
dmesg says following:
[ 66.412772] Could not find key with description: [xxxx] [ 66.412776] process_request_key_err: No key [ 66.412778] Could not find valid key in user session keyring for sig specified in mount option: [xxxx] [ 66.412780] One or more global auth toks could not properly register; rc = [-2] [ 66.412783] Error parsing options; rc = [-2]
Based on this I figure that there is a problem adding the key to the keyring. Note that I can launch a live usb session, follow the same procedure and make it work. However I'd really love to do anytime and not from the live session.
