It used to work just a few days ago and the only change I remember making was to install parallels for OSX.

OSX lion latest software updates as of today
Truecrypt 7.1a
OSXFUSE as provided from truecrypt(2.3.8) but I instaled 2.3.9 on top of it and still get the same error message.

The truecrypt archive I am trying to open is in FAT and works perfectly well on truecrypt on windows XP.

Any ideas?

More complete screencap of the error message is attached.

As far as I know older versions of Parallels used to include MacFUSE but you are getting an OSXFUSE related error. What version of Paralles are you using?

> Any ideas?

Could you try to load the kernel extension manually by running the following command in Terminal. This might give us more information as to why loading the kernel extension fails.
sudo kextutil -v /Library/Filesystems/osxfusefs.fs/Support/osxfusefs.kext

Please check the logs, too. To do this open Console.app (in /Applications/Utilities) and check if there are any OSXFUSE related entries in system.log or kernel.log when you try to mount your encrypted volume or run the above command.

Regards,
Benjamin

I am using parallels 7.0.15094(latest update), I have no idea if it is related but it's a change I made recently and it seems like this is something that would also want to play with windows filesystems from within OSX.

Here is the result of the command you sent me:

Thanks for the help. I really love truecrypt and would be sad to have to move to something else.

And yet more info…


It is not parallels. I installed it on the 17th and I was able to mount the truecrypt archive on the 19th. Something else must have happened.

And resolution????

I went through my install.log file and noticed that I also played with VPNs lately trying to install both Cisco anyconnect and IPsecuritas. I uninstalled IPsecuritas, rebooted in safe mode and came back and…

Not sure if that was related but now it works.

Very weird.

I haven't seen anything like this before. The logs or the kextutil output don't offer much to work with.

Very weird indeed. I tried to recreate the situation and installed IPSecuritas but it seems to work in my case. I don't have an IPSec server to play with, though. The OSXFUSE kernel extension loads without any issues. It seems that this is not a general problem with IPSecuritas and OSXFUSE.

Have you tried reinstalling IPSecuritas? I wonder if the issue is reproducible.

Benjamin

This is my work computer so I'd rather not re-install IPsecuritas and risk causing irreparable damage to my truecrypt installation.

It might not be related at all but right now it works so I prefer not risking anything.

The problem happened again today coming back from work.

I did not install anything new during the day but I did use transmit to mount an S3 and a WEBDAV "drive". Based on that assumption I ejected all my transmit mounts and then tried truecrypt again and it did work after.

So does transmit use OSXFUSE or something that could interfere with it when mounting S# or WEBDAV to the finder? Transmit 4.1.7

I'm using Transmit myself, but I'm able to load the OSXFUSE kernel extension without any issues while a FTP share is mounted. From a technical standpoint there should be no difference between mounting S3, WEBDAV or FTP shares using Transmit.

Transmit uses NuFS to mount shares [1].
