Well, this is interesting.
It looks like Debian's new version is more than just systemd.
When I plug in an encrypted USB disk, the password window opens as it
always did, but now it's complaining about HAL not existing.
When I tried to open it through the Konqueror device view, it also
failed. Attached are two screen grabs of the failures.
I'm not asking for this to be "fixed" in TDE, it seems that the
underlying hardware abstraction has changed in some fundamental way.
HAL isn't even in the repository for Debian 8. I expect someone will
get around to harmonizing this at some point, I'm sure I'm not the
only person who has encrypted external disks that used to work
The more things change.....
The secret of happiness is freedom,
and the secret of freedom is courage.
