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

    it seems we have some problems in the support for linux of ntfs still =/
    i'm trying to torrent dvd iso onto ntfs drive and am getting space not sufficiant kinda errors
    so i did some experimenting and via nautilus i cannot copy over a file larger than about 85MB in size - larger and it wont let me write to the device:

    Error while copying to "/media/hdb3".
    There is not enough space on the destination.

    and i noticed while torrenting the ntfs-3g process was grinding like 33% mem
    have amd 1.667ghz athalon 2000+ gig ram fx6200 256mb vid card
    is there nothing i can do?

    can you inform us of the "device" name of the drive you're trying to write to. ie, /dev/hdc2. or post your

    /etc/fstab contents

    Also post the outout from


    mount

    and

    df -h

    thanks

    edit: i couldnt downlad it via synaptic there is problem with connecting repo'S

    did you follow the guide word for word for your exact version of ubuntu, or it's possible that the repo is just down for a few? also, did you do

    dmesg | tail


    after you did the mount -a. this will show you why the ntfs drives aren't mounting.

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

    I've been having problems with ntfs-3g for the past few days, now. (ver. 1.1.328 in the Feisty Repos).

    I'm using ntfs-config, and this is a clean Feisty release install. An NTFS USB external drive mounts fine, writes, fine, and permissions are correct. However, when attempting to unmount the disk using the gnome desktop icon and "eject", I get two errors dialogs:

    One says "unable to eject disk", and a popup tooltip that says "writing to device..." Of course, the" writing to device" error is false, since this happens whenever the disk is mounted, whether any data was written or not.

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

    my ntfs drive with read & write capability from Edgy was working just fine. Now I've upgraded to Feisty and nothing works. The drive is no longer recognized and the upgrader removed the ntfs package from the repositories.

    Will ntfs-3g work with Feisty? If so, do I follow the initial directions or do I need to make adjustments since there were differences spelled out between dapper and edgy?

    I really need access to my ntfs partition while in my linux side so this will be a major headache if I can't get it to work again.

    T-one, this is probably because you wrote to the drive and it's not done writing the journal. you'll need to wait until it says it umounts ok. or, there may be an option you can add in the fstab to get it to write the changes to the disk immediately. I think it's "async" or "atime" add that before or after the options for your ntfs-3g partition.

    silent,nonempty,async,atime,noexec,uid=1000,gid=10 00,umask=007,locale=en_US.UTF-8

    you can look at

    man mount

    if you're not sure what you're enabling. good luck

    try to do a reinstall. the whole process only takes a couple of minutes. i would use
    --purge
    as well as clean out your cache so it "redownloads" the packages. good luck. i haven't gone to fiesty yet so I can't help otherwise.

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

    this is my /etc/fstab

    Code:
    nekostar@edgy:~$ cat /etc/fstab
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    #  -- This file has been automaticly generated by ntfs-config -- 
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda2 / reiserfs notail 0 1
    /dev/hda4 /home ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/hda3 /media/hda3 ntfs-3g     force,silent,umask=0,locale=en_US.utf8,rw    0    0
    /dev/hdb1 /media/hdb1 reiserfs defaults 0 2
    /dev/hdb2 /media/hdb2 reiserfs defaults 0 2
    /dev/hdb3 /media/hdb3 ntfs-3g     force,silent,umask=0,locale=en_US.utf8,rw    0    0
    /dev/hdb4 /media/hdb4 reiserfs defaults 0 2

    /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
    /dev/hdd /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
    turns out that fixed it but i had to use that silent run with force and rw
    i had had to run ntfsfix on the ntfs drives also
    but it DID get fixed and does work now
    but i'm copying over atm a 21gig folder which is spiking cpu usage [via commandline too =/]

    that shows cpu =/it bothers me that i have to force it in edgy when i had it just working in dapper tho also it pretty much just worked in feisty.

    Hey, I have no problem with this at all and will try it. My only question is ... should I substitute "feisty" in the repository name or leave it with edgy. I'm not sure how to know if they have an actual feisty repo at the ntfs3g site.

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

    i apologize, you're correct, I am not sure how you would handle that. are you saying that you still have edgy's repo because you did a dist-upgrade? i wouldn't recommend that to anyone but if you did it that way and haven't had problems than hopefully you won't in the future. maybe just try to reinstall the edgy version into feisty. what could hurt?
