Mounting encrypted FS from prefix
 
Using a prefix (and therefore without root access), is there any way
of creating/mounting an encrypted file system (e.g. on a USB stick)?

Regards

Jeff

can you explain what is prefix?
I'm using encfs as regular user.
You run:
encfs /mnt/usbkey/my_enc_dir /home/jeff/usbenc

Ok,
now I understand.
You will need the support of fuse on the kernel.
What OS this Gentoo Prefix resides on ?
If the mother OS is Linux, you will not have much trouble.
Just make sure to load the 'fuse' module before using encfs.
