givré, this is mostly a question to you.
So, what could one do to use the latest ntfs-3g in Edgy? There was recently a new version released that fixed a major bug, I'd like to switch to it, but I'd like to do it with minimal hassle.
How important is the dependency on fuse 2.6? Is it really required or just recommended? From one of your posts here one gets to understand using pmount could be a workaround if one doesn't use the latest fuse.
What are other requirements for building ntfs-3g on Edgy? Any library dependencies that are incompatible with packages in Edgy?
Could you provide, say, a backport for Edgy users? E.g. a separate stream in one of your repos that would contain an "unstable" version of latest ntfs-3g, ready to be installed in Edgy? That would be most convenient.
- making a separate release with only fix that don't need kernel module >= 2.6
- find an easy way to update the kernel module.
But in any way, i don't want to maintain a repo providing fuse module for every ubuntu kernel.

How do I restore that backupfile you had us create in your post because when I replaced the line text and filled the info in for my HDD it wont mount after a reboot.

trying to execute that first command told me it was the same file
Code:monoxide@Ubuntu:~$ sudo cp /etc/fstab.bak /etc/fstab.bak cp: `/etc/fstab.bak' and `/etc/fstab.bak' are the same fileCode:sudo mount -aCode:mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/disk/by-uuid/52C0581FC0580C1B, missing codepage or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
This is a attached hdd and is not removable.
Hi, Just to warn you I'm as fresh as you can be to linux.
I did exactly at the HOWTO said (apart from getting the ntfs-3g from ubuntu repository), but after I restarted I can't see any of my two ntfs-drives.
Then I triedbut got following message:pmount-hal /dev/hdc1
But my device are not removable....Error: device /dev/hdc1 is not removable
Error: could not execute pmount
What do I do now? I would like to get this to work without having to install ubuntu again.
Please help, as told before - I'm super-green at this. *S*
