As there are no existing TrueCrypt for GNU Linux/Sparc, we had to do this ourselves. However, the buildprocess is not pretty and for some reason one just *has* to build all that wxWidget stuff, although I don't intend to manage crypto devices with my mouse, sigh. Oh, and there were quite a few build errors but thanks to Kano we finally succeeded. Here it goes, the whole shebang for TrueCrypt-6.1a:
# apt-get install libfuse-dev pkg-config # mkdir /usr/local/include/pkcs11-v2-20 # cd /usr/local/include/pkcs11-v2-20 # for i in pkcs11.h pkcs11f.h pkcs11t.h; do \ wget ftp://ftp.rsasecurity.com/pub/pkcs/pkcs-11/v2-20/$i; done # for i in `pwd`/*h; do (ln -s $i /usr/include); done # cd /usr/local/src # wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wxwindows/wxWidgets-2.8.9.tar.bz2 # tar -xjf wxWidgets-2.8.9.tar.bz2 # cd ~/dev/truecrypt-6.1-source # make NOGUI=1 WX_ROOT=/usr/local/src/wxWidgets-2.8.9 wxbuild # make NOGUI=1 WXSTATIC=1 [....hours later on this box....] # file Main/truecrypt Main/truecrypt: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, SPARC, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), strippedNote: it's really important to get v2.20 of the PKCS11 header files, the current version did not work. Also, Debian/Etch comes with libwxgtk2.-dev - the build failed and I really had to get the 2.8 version. Update: Although the build worked, truecrypt doesn't. Rebuilding with DEBUG=1 DEBUGGER=1 NOSTRIP=1 made gdb(1) spit out all the gory details:

However, when trying to create the volume with another cipher, it still crashes at TestXtsAES, because VolumeCreator::CreateVolume always calls EncryptionTest::TestAll before actually creating the volume. Commenting out this call in VolumeCreator.cpp:179, recompiling and trying to create the volume with the Twofish cipher gives:

Still SIGBUS for truecrypt, and -ENOSKILL for me, for not knowing C++ at all. Looks like truecrypt just wasn't meant to be run on big endian platforms. Damn.
