I have an eeepc 10HD with Ubuntu 10.0 and Western Digital 1 terabyte
external hard disk. I started encrypting the WD disk yesterday using
gdecrypt and luks. Does anyone know how long this could take. It is
still encrypting this morning. So far top tells me the kcrypt command
has been running for "1075:00". I expect that it minutes.

Thanks in advance for any help.
