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

    ntfs-3g is now officialy a project of linux-ntfs.org.
    Annoncement :
    There is currently lots of progress being made in the linux-ntfs project, and we are once again moving one step closer to a full implementation of a read/write ntfs driver for linux.

    On 07/14/2006, Project Member Szabolcs Szakacsits presented a new version of ntfsmount and libntfs, currently given the beta-title ntfs-3g. This new driver has, apart from several rather unlikely cases, full read/write capabilities and has improved performance. As news spreads quickly, it has already been downloaded and tested by many users, and no incident has been reported so far. Despite of that it is still to be considered beta, and will upon successfull testing merge (in some way or the other) into the linux-ntfs ntfsprogs package.
    The merge with the other project (ntfsmount) will come soon. Last things is to find a name to this new driver. You can vote on their site: http://linux-ntfs.org/

    Close all apps looking at /media/sda1 and retry.
    Try to reboot if it doesn't work.

    EDIT: also instead of umout -a, you should try umount /dev/sda1, and remount it
    Reboot solved problem. Thanks

    How do we do this on AMD64 ?

    I get these errors:

    Code:
    dpkg: error processing libfuse2_2.5.3-1_i386.deb (--install):
     package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
    dpkg: error processing fuse-utils_2.5.3-1_i386.deb (--install):
     package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     libfuse2_2.5.3-1_i386.deb
     fuse-utils_2.5.3-1_i386.deb

    <* FALSE INFORMATION *>

    64 bit system will have to wait. It seams that it need a little of coding before they launch a 64 bit version.

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

    I can't get this working with my external HD. My drive partition is named
    Code:
    /dev/sde1
    So I entered the proper line in fstab because it didn't have a line (being a usb connected external harddrive). I told it to mount to /mnt/windows. When I get to the part where I'm supposed to sudo umount -a I get this error:
    Code:
    umount: /dev: device is busy
    umount: /var/run: device is busy
    umount: /: device is busy
    Then after that if I try to sudo mount -a despite the errors, I get:
    Code:
    Couldn't mount device '/dev/sde1': Operation not supported
    Windows did not shut down properly.  Try to mount volume in windows, shut down and try again.
    Mount failed.
    If I remove that line out of fstab, my drive will mount properly, but without write available. What am I doing wrong?

    Lel the line in /etc/fstab and reboot, that should solve your problem.

    Do you mean Del the line? if so, as I wrote earlier, if I take this line out of fstab, it will mount properly, but without the write feature.

    You can also install ntfs-3g from
    Code:
    deb http://www.elisanet.fi/mlind/ubuntu dapper main
    Then add yourself to fuse group and mount drives using -o umask=0007,gid=116
    Building on Ubuntu using [pbuilder]
    Other resources [Upgrading from CVS, Gaim2, Anjuta, Rhythmbox]

    Why do you need to create a special group for fuse user. It's better to use it like other partition, with the classical option : uid & gid.
