carbon seatpost squeak

Ideas for stopping minor squeak w/aluminum frame, carbon seatpost? I think I've heard there's something special about carbon/metal (e.g. don't use grease, but something else). Right now it's dry--no lube.

I bought some "carbon assembly paste" which is allegedly the only thing you're supposed to use. But who really knows?

Yes, only use specific pastes because grease could contaminate and weaken the resin.
