The default setup on linux/ubuntu has Bitcoin storing the data on
~/.bitcoin folder, which is usually not encrypted with Truecrypt.
Suppose I do now want to rely on the internal Bitcoin encryption system, but instead want to save the wallet to disk on using Truecrypt encryption. Currently, I have a separate Truecrypt data file, that I mount to a partition, copy files from it to
~/.bitcoin, and when I'm finished, I copy the files back to the truecrypt volume, and shred+delete the copies on
This is bothersome and error prone.
Can I configure Bitcoin to only take the wallet from
/media/trucrypt, but keep the blockchain data in
