    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Well. Support for writing on NTFS volumes should be added to Ubuntu by default, I guess.

    The new Knoppix supports it already, the new Sabayon Linux does and it is planned for Linux Mint.

    Although it is still labeled as beta (but might be final until April judging from the development speed) it isn't supposed to cause any data loss.

    The slowdowns should be fixed by today's NTFS-3g update.

    I think that I will start a poll in the feisty development channel.

    The problem solved by itself!!! Curiously enough, after a couple of reboots (with the same user), I was able to see my NTFS partition correctly mounted. I have no idea what happened, but I will post the fstab anyway, if someone is interested in decyphering what happened.

    p.s. Thanks raul_.

    EDIT: The problem is actually pretty weird. On my last two reboots, I was again unable to "see" the files on my ntfs-3g partition, and got the same error message (unable to mount... only user root can mount). But now I rebooted once again and, curiously enough, the partition is mounted with no problems. I must stress that I have logged in as exactly the same user on all occasions, and that I executed nothing on this occasion to "see" the partition. Everything is working fine now, but... will it on the next reboot? Any suggestions?
    p.s. I read through the "mount" and "fstab" manuals and decided to add the "user" option in fstab. I wonder if it will have any effect.

    Current fstab:

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda4 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
    /dev/hda1 /sonybackup ntfs defaults,nls=utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1
    /dev/hda2 /vaiowin ntfs-3g defaults,locale=es_CO.utf8,user 0 0
    /dev/hda3 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/hdb /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
    (/dev/hda2 mounted in /vaiowin is the problematic partition).

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Hello everybody,

    back from my Christmas holiday, I'm happy to see that the testing repo got a lot of feedback.
    Thanks to all of you, especially many thanks to wilberfan and phormion for pointing some stupid bugs and improvements. So here is the new release that everybody waited :
    Code:
    ntfs-3g (1:0.20070102-BETA-1) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * New upstream release
        -  fix: writing large files could be very slow
        -  fix: writing several files at the same time could be very slow
        -  fix: writing at several places into a file at the same time could be very slow
        -  fix: invalid argument error when writing randomly into a sparse file 
      * debian/README.debian : moved to README.Debian (thanks to phormion!)
      * debian/README.Debian : fix some "doc bugs"
        - use the install command with apt-get (thanks to wilberfan!)
        - properly install module-assistant (thanks to phormion!)
        - help to load the new fuse module (thanks to phormion!)
      * debian/ntfs-3g.postinst : update (thanks to phormion!)
    Keep the feedback going, i should be around more often now.

    javierguillot, launch
    Code:
    sudo mount -a
    from a terminal when you have this kind of problems, you should get some more helpfull error message. I personally suspect that you didn't unmount the partition properly before booting on ubuntu.

    shareMenaPeace,
    Code:
    /dev/sda1 /media/sda1 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8   0    0
    should works.

    Hello, givre. I just did a dist-upgrade and saw that there were updates available, and immediately came here.

    Code:
    The following packages will be upgraded:
      libntfs-3g0 ntfs-3g 
    2 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    Need to get 123kB of archives. After unpacking 0B will be used.
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]
    So, can I let it install the updates?

    What? Another present? Lovely!

    Just upgraded and ran backup with the new version. So far so good, the performance seems to be up at least 200%! Cool.

    Thank you so much!
