If you recently experienced problems with zuluCrypt, the solution is to rebuild zuluCrypt :

(stating mhogomchungu) zuluCrypt has a dependency on libcryptsetup. cryptsetup prior to version 2.0.0 has a library named "" cryptsetup version 2.0.0 going up has a library named "" zuluCrypt is failing because it can no longer find cryptsetup library it depends on. Solution is to rebuild !

rebuild zuluCrypt to force it to use the updated library version.

Version 5.4.0 gives "Unrecognized ERROR with status number 127 encountered" when key is entered. both zuluCrypt-cli and zuluMount-cli give: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Solution - Rebuild

Thanks to the mighty mhogomchungu.

version 5.4.0
-- fix a bug that caused a wrong password to be used when creating a TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt volume from zuluCrypt-gui.
Easiest way to notice this was that a just created volume could not be unlocked.
-- fix a build issue on some distributions.

@egrupled: Done. Thanks for the reminder ;-)

@salan54 Ok. Can you adjust -git version accordingly?

salan54 commented on 2017-11-02 15:12

@egrupled: I will remove the "echo..." from the PKGBUILD. But I think I will keep the cp line because I like to have this copy of the changelog in my working directory to copy and paste the modifs here. I know, it is very egoistic as it only serves my own needs. I hope it is not a big deal ;-)

@salan54 Almost there, two redundant lines in PKGBUILD left:

package() {
echo "changelog updated"
cp "${srcdir}/${_altpkgname}-${pkgver}"/changelog ../${pkgname}.changelog

@egrupled: No prob : your comments are welcome and constructive.
I already tried sometime ago to remove zulucrypt.install and zulucrypt.changelog from the AUR git tree. I know they are not relevant anymore... but I screwed up my remote git repository ;-) Will try again later !

As we use to say in french : "Le temps porte conseil !...". I did succeed and think the AUR git tree is clean !

@salan54 Thanks for update.

I know that install hook is unused here but it would be nice to delete it from AUR repos completely. Changelog can be also removed from PKGBUILD and deleted from repo as it's already outdated and I doubt that anyone needs it installed with package. I also doubt if including md5sum is useful in PKGBUILD. Most of this as applicable to -git version too.

I hope I'm not annoying you with those advice. My intention isn't pushing anything, those are minor things for completeness. You do a great job anyway :)
