      I compiled truecrypt the debian way, once with the standard 2.6.18-4
      kernel image/headers and once with a self-compiled kernel and headers
      (2.6.18-4 as well). The compilation ran through smoothly, and all .deb
      packages were generated and installed properly. However, when I run

      modprobe truecrypt

      the command hangs. After backgrounding the task, I see many modprobe
      processes (>100), with new processes being added the whole time:

      root 2247 0.7 1.7 1444 536 pts/0 S 22:16 0:00 /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      root 2248 0.8 1.7 1444 536 pts/0 S 22:16 0:00 /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      root 2249 0.7 1.7 1444 536 pts/0 S 22:16 0:00 /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      root 2250 0.8 1.7 1444 536 pts/0 S 22:16 0:00 /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      [...]

      I see no information about it in dmesg or syslog. modprobe -v shows this:


      nslu2:/var/log# modprobe -v truecrypt
      install /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      install /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      install /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      install /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      install /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      install /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      install /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      install /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      install /sbin/modprobe truecrypt
      [...]

      Any ideas whats happening? Is anyone using truecrypt on the NSLU2?
