    This new driver is working really well now. I'm even using the ntfs disk to store amule temp files and for other p2p (gift) too! Amazing!

    Let's hope they integrate this into Edgy now

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

    I'm trying without avail to get this to work with my external usb harddrive. After following this how-to to a T, and entering this line in fstab

    Code:
    /dev/sde1	/mnt/windows	ntfs-3g	silent,umask=0,locale=en_US.utf8	0	0
    now whenever I boot, I get an Internal Error: failed to initialize HAL

    also my external harddrive won't mount anymore. I had to comment out that line in fstab to make all of this go away, but I don't have write capabilities. Does this just not work with externals or what?

    EDIT:

    I took the line completely out of fstab, and I still get the Internal Error. I still can't mount my ext. drive even without that line. Can someone help me?

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

    There is no reasons that it deosn't work.
    To be sure that the drive work with ubuntu:
    - remove the line from /etc/fstab
    - unplug your HD
    - Reboot
    - Plug your HD. And that should work. If not, i can't help more.

    Now if you want to use ntfs-3g, you have to use /etc/fstab, because mounting of usb device automaticly, are made by gnome-volume-manager via pmount, and this tool is not set to use ntfs-3g (i'll see if i can do something about this but for the moment there is no other solution)
    So first, you have to be sure that the name of your usb device don't chance all the time (that's happens for usb) because you have to set this name definitly. check fdisk -l everytime you plug it.
    If the name change, try that http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=168221
    If not, what's happens when you try to mount it with sudo mount /dev/sde1 ?

    Are you sure your drive is mapped as /dev/sde?
    What's the output of
    Code:
    udevinfo -a -p $(udevinfo -q path -n /dev/sde)

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

    Test finish since a while

    We have potentialy a better solution to automaticly mount usb device with ntfs-3g instead of ntfs.
    I patch pmount to add ntfs-3g to the supported filesystem, and put it before ntfs, so if pmount success in mounted the usb-disk with ntfs-3g, that should work, and that's could be great.
    But, because there is always a but, since i don't have any NTFS usb device at home, i couldn't test it. So i need some testeur (don't worry, that's totaly safe).

    So what to do:
    1. Install the patched pmount attach here
    2. Unmount your usb device (if it's not already done):
    Code:
    pumount -d /dev/sd*    #check fdisk -l to know is name
    if you mount it with fstab, you will probably have to run that as root
    3. Comment the mention of your usb device in /etc/fstab (if you have one) (important)
    4. Try to mount it with pmount:
    Code:
    pmount -d /dev/sd*    #idem as before
    pmount will try several filesystem, and if it stop on ntfs-3g, great that's work , but if it continue until ntfs, unfortunatly ntfs-3g fail probably to mount, so go to step 5 to know what was the error
    5. If it fail in step 4, we need to know why:
    Code:
    pmount -d -t ntfs-3g /dev/sd*    #always the same
    with that, we specify to pmount to use ntfs-3g, so it will give the output. Note the error and report them here.

    Thanks. 8)

    Sounds simple enough. So where is the "1. Install the patched pmount attach here"?

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

    Having some issues with an external USB drive.

    /etc/fstab
    Code:
    /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1 ntfs-3g silent,umask=0,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0
    sudo mount /dev/sdb1
    Code:
    Couldn't mount device '/dev/sdb1': Operation not supported
    Windows did not shut down properly.  Try to mount volume in windows, shut down and try again.
    Mount failed.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    All say in the error message. ntfs-3g need a clean partition to work. Reboot in windows, mount it, unmount it cleanly, and restart. That should do the trick.

    No worries, it's not like some of us has ever forgotten to attach files before. Will post feedback asap.
