    followed the instructions in the first post to get my pendrive with ntfs-3g to work with Ubuntu UMPC 8.10 on a Toshiba Libretto U100, and now it mounts OK, thanx!

    Change since the last version :

    * fix: the 'user' and 'users' fstab mount options didn't work (requires setuid root ntfs-3g)
    * fix: time of last file modification and status change weren't updated

    I didn't yet look into the setuid root support, but i'll do that in time.

    Uploaded to testing. Please reports problems
    Hi givre, this was a very old post of yours but I couldn't find the info I need anywhere else. I think it's a question of nomenclature!

    So it's about the term "setuid-root". What does it mean exactly that a file is setuid-root?
    Does it mean it is simply owned by user root OR
    Does it mean it is owned by root AND it has the SUID bit turned on?

    In case you're wondering, this is where I'm coming from:

    Setuid root means that the file is owned by root and has the setuid bit set so normal users can execute the file with root's privileges.

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

    Hi everyone.

    I need help, it s been 2 days i am trying to mount my windows xp partition(hpfs/ntfs) in my new ubuntu 8.10.

    I tried a lot of things I read on many forums but without any results(or good ones at least). When I try to mount it with "sudo mount -a", it replies:

    Unexpected clusters per mft record (-1).
    Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Invalid argument
    The device '/dev/sdb1' doesn't have a valid NTFS.
    Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a
    partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?
    here is my output from the command "sudo fdisk -l"

    Disk /dev/sda: 20.4 GB, 20491075584 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2491 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0xc9560c7e

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 * 1 2489 19992861 c W95 FAT32 (LBA)

    Disk /dev/sdb: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x8e0a67ed

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sdb1 * 1 16102 129339283+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

    /dev/sdb6 16346 19457 24997108+ 83 Linux
    The one I am triyng to mount(winxp) is "/dev/sdb1" and my Ubuntu(8.10) is "/dev/sdb6"

    First, this thread is outdated, and you shouldn't follow the instructions in the first post, since you're running Intrepid.

    It looks to me like your NTFS partition is somehow corrupt. Try booting into XP and running the disk check utility on the partition. Then reboot into XP again. Then try again from Linux.

    Also, please post your /etc/fstab, just in case something's screwy there.

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

    It seem i can't even start winxp anymore. I just re-installed Ubuntu and im doing upgrades right now. I think i m gonna have to format my hard drive and re-install everything again to have it to work well...

    But before I format, there is some data i really would like to save from erasing, is there another way i can save specific files or folders in Winxp from Ubuntu?

    Given that your XP partition is apparently hosed, I wouldn't hold out much hope. You can look around for data recovery tools that work with NTFS (you might have to look in the Windows world for this). Unless you can mount the partition, you can't access the data from Ubuntu.

    One thing you can do if you have enough available disk space is make a copy of the partition. That would allow you to go ahead and reformat, then if you ever figured out a way to recover your data, you could do so. You can mount files as if they were disks in Linux. I don't know if Windows can do that, though, and it's probable that most data recovery that deal with NTFS will be for Windows. At any rate, to copy an entire partition:
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=/name/of/file/to/save/as bs=512
    This is written from memory, so it might not be quite correct. Read the dd man page to be sure.

    i've read a bunch of HOWTO guides in the ubuntuforums over the past 3 or so years, but this is one of the finest.

    clear and considerate.

    great job!
