So ive been trying to get truecrypt from this tarball file for the last 2 hours… I hate to seem so incapable of things but every thing ive goggled has been different not to mention none of it was worked…so apprently im suppose to somehow unpack this file and install it and im lost.
give me a break everyone has to start somewhere… Ive had whonix for 2 years but just recently started really using it…
But from my understanding its still secure…no one has yet to prove other wise…and as for you link referral…im assuming that youre saying this isnt the place to ask that question because it doesnt specifcally deal with a whonix issue, but rather a linux issue?
Why do you want to run truecrypt in the VM?
Encrypt your “real” system drive and the drive the VM data is on (if it’s not on the system drive) with full disk encryption. Since you most likely use Windows, you can either use Truecrypt 7.1a or the new VeraCrypt (which has not been verified yet). The encryption of TC is still perfectly secure (and if the NSA wants you, they have other means to get your password anyway).
Like recommended before by @Patrick, simply use the official repository for installation, everything else isn’t verified. Also, like mentioned before, this isn’t a Whonix related problem. If you need support for this, please ask it in the respective forum for the OS you want to install TC on.
