I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on a fresh partition and my old Ubuntu 10.10 has my home directory encrypted. I was wondering if I can mount this home directory as /home/myoldhome in to new install whenever I use it in RW mode.
I already referred Trying to mount old encrypted home and was able to use
ecryptfs-recover-private utility to mount my home directory to
/tmp/ecryptfs.xxxx. But this would not help me to access the data in R/w mode and to mount in subsequent boots to 12.04 automatically. Moving the data to new home directory is not an option since I do not have enough hard disk space in the new partition.
By following, the answer 1 from rausch, I could mount the filesystem, but all the files/directories are shown as
So is it possible to mount the encrypted home directory in read/write mode and make an entry to /etc/fstab to automatically mount it every time I boot in to 12.04 ?
