Mounting an encrypted partition: problems


Under slackware I encrypted my home partition using the shell script with hashalot. Now I run archlinux, I installed device mapper and cryptsetup with pacman but even though the password is right ( I checked by booting into slackware and mounting) I have this error message from mount:

[root@myhost gt]# mount -t xfs /dev/mapper/home /mnt
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/home,
       or too many mounted file systems
[root@myhost gt]#

The password is correct, the command line is:
cryptsetup -v -c aes -h ripemd160 -y create home /dev/hda3

Any other idea ?
