Hello list.

I'm running this;

FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE #0: Thu Jan 1 14:37:25 UTC 2009 r...@logan.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386

and I'm trying to encrypt my usb memory with geli.

But it does not work according to the handbook or this homepage

This works

geli init -s 4096 -l 256 /dev/da0
Enter new passphrase:
Reenter new passphrase:

        Try with the key example from the manpage

          dd if=/dev/random of=/tmp/disk.key bs=64 count=1
           geli init -s 4096 -K /tmp/disk.key /dev/da0
           Enter new passphrase:
           Reenter new passphrase:
           # geli attach -k /tmp/disk.key /dev/da0
           Enter passphrase:
           # newfs /dev/da0.eli
           # mount /dev/da0.eli /mnt
           # umount /mnt
           # geli detach da0.eli

geli attach -k /root/da0.key /dev/da0
geli: Cannot read metadata from /dev/da0: Invalid argument.
