Today I found out that we do not need pam_mount for ecryptfs home mounting at login by trying in a vm. I thought about it because ecryptfs-utils is now in community and does not depend on pam_mount (which is still in AUR), even in Ubuntu ecryptfs-utils has no dependency on pam_mount. So I removed the installation of pam_mount from the wiki article "PAM Mount [New Method]". I always thought it uses pam_mount becuase of Anrxc's tutorial, but never thought about if the "normal" ecryptfs needs it. Would be nice if someone else could try it: pacman -Rs pam_mount and see if you still can login and got your encrypted $home opened. Thx and sry. for the not necessary package...

I've added a warning about potential bugs in ecryptfs. While I have been affected by the bug presented at Launchpad this only happened in Kubuntu and I haven't tried to use ecryptfs ever since. --Roentgen 09:50, 27 March 2011 (EDT)

PAM Mount [New Method]

I tried severel times to implement the pam-mount section and spent hours of testing it. The PAM-Mount described here is not working anymore - I think there is some mistake anywhere in the "PAM_Mount"-Section (I think it is also not complete) or changes in pam_mount. So I searched and found another solution in the forum which is much more easier to set up and works well.
Anrxc dislikes this method - I don't know why but I hope you could add that to the wiki.
I hope you could also try this method - maybe I do something wrong, but I don't think. The error I get is "Error attempting to add filename encryption key to user session keyring; rc = [1]" - even with filename encryption off.
This does not affect Anrxc's solution!
