cryptsetup - device-mapper: reload ioctl on failed: No such file or

In the middle of last year I successfully wiped two partitions
on my laptop following the instructions here:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm … _partition

This year I decided to wipe the remaining partition on the same laptop
using the same command command but it fails as below. Any ideas?

~/ lsblk

Have you tried runing the command through strace to see what is failing?

Re: cryptsetup - device-mapper: reload ioctl on failed: No such file or

Thanks for the strace suggestion. The output was copious but this is the relevant part:

openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/share/locale/en_IE.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/share/locale/en_IE.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/share/locale/en_IE/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/share/locale/en.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/share/locale/en.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/share/locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
write(2, "device-mapper: reload ioctl on  "..., 67device-mapper: reload ioctl on   failed: No such file or directory) = 67

Why are those files missing? Last year I ran the command so presumably the files were there.
Today I ran locale-gen but it had no effect. IE is because I live in Ireland.

Maybe there is a bug somewhere related to locales. What do you think?

Those files not being found is normal.

Print the error message,  something went wrong before this point.

You could also try --debug

~/ cryptsetup open --type plain -d /dev/urandom /dev/nvme0n1p3 to_be_wiped

Did you reverse the order of the device and its name?

Re: cryptsetup - device-mapper: reload ioctl on failed: No such file or

"Did you reverse the order of the device and its name?"
I entered the command in the wiki which is according to the man page so I don't think there is a problem there.

Anyway, I solved the problem by rebooting the laptop. Linux is like Windows! :-)

I followed your suggestion of using the --debug parameter. Thanks. In the evening I will post the output with debug enabled before and after rebooting (I don't have time now), then we can compare.

Did you perform a kernel update without a reboot before encountering the issue?  Otherwise I wonder what the reboot changed.

No kernel update. However I deleted p3 because I wanted to grow p4 into its space, then recreated p3 because I thought that I would wipe it before growing p4. My guess is that deleting and recreating p3 triggered a bug somewhere like udev or kernel. Everything else was normal (fdisk, lsblk, etc).

Anyway, following your suggestion of using --debug, this is what I got before rebooting:

Re: cryptsetup - device-mapper: reload ioctl on failed: No such file or

Hmm no kernel update but the detected kernel changed from

# Detected kernel Linux 5.4.60-1-lts x86_64.

to

# Detected kernel Linux 5.4.88-1-lts x86_64.

Although I agree the kernel getting out of sync with the actual disk state is another possible cause.

Glad the issue is resolved even if the cause / fix is undetermined.

Re: cryptsetup - device-mapper: reload ioctl on failed: No such file or

Thanks! Well spotted! I normally reboot after kernel update but forgot this time. It is such a mechanical thing that I just assumed that I had rebooted.

Not rebooting is the cause of the issue I had. I confirmed it by deleting and recreating partition 3 and cryptsetup worked fine. So no bug.

I am not sure if I should mark this as solved, since it was just a stupid mistake.
