My first attempt at contributing to the Gentoo wiki was disastrous. I sincerely believe this, my second attempt, to be FAR superior. I hope it proves useful for someone; it sure would have saved me a few hours. :-) Aries97 (talk) 06:55, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the article and welcome to the Gentoo wiki! I'm sure it will be helpful for anyone dual booting with Ubuntu. I'll try to review it according to the Guidelines in the next few days. Kind regards, --Maffblaster (talk) 16:25, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
Looks good to me. Closing. --Grknight (talk) 15:31, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

eCryptfs vs cryptsetup ?

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

I promised I'd revisit this topic at:
I see IBM's eCryptfs (read about it in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/filesystems/ecryptfs.txt) wouldn't even work with anything that it hasn't encrypted.
So what is the advantage of eCryptfs over plain cryptsetup, if any?
I understand it's fine for new users that only just discovered Ubuntu, sure! And great that they get a fine step-by-step tutorial how to recover their Ubuntu encrypted partitions.
So this tutorial is fine.
Just, I don't think I would prefer eCryptfs over simple cryptsetup that I believe is supported generally, from (likely) every recovery CD.
