Does veracrypt work on DSL?
wanted to plant a 1tb external drive in the office where I can login to it through OpenVNC or some such, but the disc is encrypted with veracrypt.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Supported Operating Systems page (https://veracrypt.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Supported%20Operating%20Systems) on the Veracrypt website says that it will only work on Linux distributions with a v. 2.6 kernel or higher. DSL uses a v. 2.4 kernel, so it likely won't be compatible (though if desperate you could try compiling it anyway).

DSL-N uses a v. 2.6 kernel, so that might be an option. However I can't see an extension in the MyDSL Respository for the program, so you will need to compile it yourself from the source code.
