Default Encfs : 32bit -> 64bit ??

Hi,

short question:
Are encfs-encrypted partition, which were created under a 32bit-Linux
still readable when migrated to 64bit??
Or do I have to recrypt everything?

Thanks for any hint in advance!
Best regards,
mcc

No, in the same way that you don't have to re-"textify" text files,
re-JPEGify images or re-compress gzipped files.

If, of course, you have 32-bit executables on the encfs filesystem then
they will need to be recompiled or at least your 64bt system should have
multilib and all the 32bit dependencies to run said executables.
