fuse = kernel module + userspace utility.
The latest fuse kernel module, needed for latest ntfs-3g, was merge with linus tree with 2.6.20-RC1, so i think it's already in feisty.
But the version of fuse in feisty is still 2.5.3, because debian didn't move yet to the latest version. Don't know what they are waiting, there is already a bug file.
The problem is that the latest ntfs-3g require fuse > 2.6, and so things can't move until they update fuse. I hope it will happens soon.
When fuse will be ready, ntfs-3g will follow and you'll be able to use gnome-mount safely.
If you can't wait, you can get latest fuse & ntfs-3g here :
I followed the tutorial. I then restarted my computer. It detects the external hd, but when I try to open it, I get this error:
mount: only root can mount /dev/sdb1 on /media/external
How do I fix this? Is there a root Nautilus browser? That way, when I try to open it, it should mount it as root.
If not, how do I fix this?
That's the /etc/fstab# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
