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!

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...

pam.d has changed around. Needs to update to address the new file layout. Have not been able to find documentation on the new layout and where lines should be placed. --Zkai (talk) 13:47, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
