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

  1. #1791

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

    use this to find your uid and gid information:
    Code:
    id username
    replacing the username with your non-root username that you would like to r/w with the drive.

    try
    Code:
    sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mount/point -o rw,uid=youruid,gid=yourgid,user_allow_other
    substitting youruid and yourgid with your actuall id numbers

    hopefully this will work

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

    Hi there, platinummonkey,

    Alas, still no luck. Neither this one:
    Code:

    sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/western_digital -o defaults
    nor this one (as hairyhi mentioned above):

    Code:

    id username

    replacing the username with your non-root username that you would like to r/w with the drive.

    try
    Code:

    sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mount/point -o rw,uid=youruid,gid=yourgid,user_allow_other
    worked for me. I still get the same old "unable to unmount the selected drive" message. If you have any other ideas, I'd sure appreciate it, but I'm thinking of throwing in the towel and just using the terminal whenever I have to mount/unmount the drive. I'm just glad that I can write to it and read its contents now (thanks again for that)!

    I can't seem to connect to
    http://ntfs-3g.sitesweetsite.info/ubuntu/

    is it down?

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

    @platinummonkey

    @aseembehl - doesnt seem your fuse is setup right. so try reinstalling fuse. read a few posts back by me on how to do this from source. after that, everything should work.
    I tried reinstalling fuse from source by the method mentioned(see below) by you in this thread

    if you get an error about fuse needing to be 2.6 or greater... your gonna have to install fuse from source... yeah. i know bleh x.x but thats why im here to help

    same process... download source
    unpack in home directory, cd to directory

    Code:
    sudo ./configure --enable-kernel-module
    sudo make
    sudo make install
    su -c 'rmmod fuse'
    su -c 'ldconfig'
    But I still get the same error of
    Code:
    /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g: /usr/lib/libfuse.so.2: version `FUSE_2.6' not found (required by sbin/mount.ntfs-3g)
    with
    Code:
    sudo mount -a
    So I tried another method for installing fuse(also mentioned in this thread)

    Code:
    1. You'll need first to get the source of the new fuse module :
    
    sudo apt-get install fuse-source module-assistant
    
    2. Then we will build and install the new module for your running kernel :
    
    sudo module-assistant auto-install fuse
    
    module-assistant will take care of all the dependency, and will do everything
    automatically. You'll probably need to have a working internet connection.
    
    3. Finaly, you'll need to load it. Two ways :
    
    - You can reboot your cumputer now, and the new module should be load.
    - If you don't want to reboot, first unmount all partitions that currently use ntfs-3g,
    then restart fuse :
    
    sudo modprobe -r fuse
    sudo modprobe fuse
    Even this doesn't work?? I get the same error.

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

    hi!
    i have been using ntfs-3g for my ntfs formatted drive with all my data, since i debuted in linux (3 months ago).
    everything runs quite well, except that:
    i'm always listening to music from that drive, and it's not unusual that, while playing, the thing bugs. the player is killed by the system with no notice. it happens and with rythmbox, and with movie player.
    if i try to restart it, and play the same song, it bugs again, on the exact same point of the same song it bugged on before.
    i'd easily believe it's collateral effect of traveling here and there with the drive, and exposing it to the airports' x-ray machines.
    but it didn't really happen before. the problem started after upgrading ubuntu to feisty.

    i've been searching for similar question for a while, and nothing.
    does anybody have the same problem? does anybody know why?

    thanx
    alex

    Is there any chance we may see this pre installed in any distributions, or are there legal issues involved?

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

    @aseembehl - we should check to see if fuse is properly installed. make sure that /dev/fuse exists! link from quoted text:
    Quote Originally Posted by fuse.sourceforge.net

    Maybe the FUSE module is not loaded. As root, try:

    modprobe fuse

    If nothing changes, as root run:

    mknod /dev/fuse c 10 229

    What do I do if you don't have access to /dev/fuse?

    As root run:

    chmod o+rw /dev/fuse

    Remember that this will allow ordinary users to mount their own user space filesystems.

    If that's not what you want then use different permissions.
    if fuse is properly installed, then it seems your ntfs-3g installation has not been able to recognize this yet. If you installed from source. go back to the source directory that you used to install with and type:
    Code:
    sudo make uninstall
    and then reinstall from source again using the whole
    Code:
    ./configure
    sudo make
    sudo make install
    if you installed from the repos, then just
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g libntfs-3g2 libntfs-3g-dev --reinstall
    if you didnt have one of those packages installed in the first place, then remove it from that command

    ---------------------------------------------
    @green-12 - as far as i know, yes try ntfs-3g.org

    --------------------------------------------
    @atmartin and hairyhi - hm, well something that might work for you both -- ntfs-config should do the auto mounting for you with user privileges, so no mount commands should be needed.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pmount ntfs-config -f
    ntfs-config depends on pmount, so it is necessary. here is the homepage of ntfs-config if you would like to dl the source and install from there instead

    ------------------------------------------
    @kblo - you say that it happens at the exact same spot on the media... sounds like it is a bit corrupted... make sure that when you want to disconnect the device in whatever OS that you use, that you umount it before hand. Not doing so can cause various amounts of corruption.

    ---------------------------------------------
    @ethana2 - since it is 3rd party, i wouldn't expect it to come pre-installed on any distrobutions in the near future; although, it is possible. As far as I know, unless im mistaken, there are no distro's at the moment that come pre-installed with ntfs-3g; although, quite a few have pre-compiled binaries available for easy installation.

    -------------------------------------------
    phew i think i answered everyone

    @platinummonkey

    well, it's an internal hd, and i have only been using it with ubuntu. i don't mind unmounting each partition before logging out, but i guess it does it automatically, doesn't it?

    Thank you for replying! I tried what you said.

    I get
    Code:
    mknod: `/dev/fuse': File exists
    with
    Code:
    Maybe the FUSE module is not loaded. As root, try:
    
    modprobe fuse
    
    If nothing changes, as root run:
    
    mknod /dev/fuse c 10 229
    then I did
    Code:
    chmod o+rw /dev/fuse

    So it seems the problem is with ntfs-3g, so I reinstall it by typing
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g libntfs-3g-dev --reinstall
    , I restart but I still get the same error of
    Code:
    /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g: /usr/lib/libfuse.so.2: version `FUSE_2.6' not found (required by sbin/mount.ntfs-3g)
    with
    Code:
    sudo mount -a

    EDIT:

    I just saw some updates for fuse in update manager. I performed the updates.

    Now error message I get by typing
    Code:
    sudo mount -a
    has changed to
    Code:
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation error: No such file or directory
    Unmounting /dev/hda1 ()
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation error: No such file or directory
    Unmounting /dev/hda5 ()
