So all my data, is on a truecrypt encrypted partition. When was running PCLinux08, you had to mount the truecrypt drive as root, then under my regular user name I could at least read the drive, just couldn't make any changes, but, I could make changes through the root terminal, which was tolerable.
Now since I've updated to PCLinux09, I can mount the truecrypt drive, but my user account can't see the folder at all. I can run nautilus as a super user, and view the folder, but then the problem is that a bunch of my videos are flash video that need to be played in VLC which can't be run as root?
Any kind of work around? Truecrypt used to have a -u (user mode) to make users able to access the drive, but that doesn't work anymore.
I need a way for VLC to run under a root account? Or a way to make my regular user account read the truecrypt drive. CHMOD and CHOWN don't seem to work for some reason on the truecrypt partition, I'm not sure why. This happens across 3 machines, so it's not just the one encrypted drive.
