My memory can be faulty. But you are the only one I remember asking how to
expand an encrypted home filesystem "a la suse". I do use yast encryption
on a data partition; I would not know how to expand it, either.


After file is resized - simply "cryptsetup resize".

Interesting...

How would you expand the file? Right now I can only think of:

cat bigfile >> loopedfile
