ntfs-3g 1.0

Postby voxiac » Thu Feb 22, 2007 13:32

As ntfs-3g project has now reached 1.0 milestone I would like to ask if it's planned for inclusion(it's in the portage tree now). What about some automagic-windows-partition-mounting goodness?

I didn't even know there was such a problem :)

It emerged fine on my 64bit system. I haven't played much with it, but it seems to have no problems with mounting ntfs partitions so far.

+1 to that. It would be great to have it... Automatically mounted NTFS partitions with r/w access is just what I need for the time being while trying to convert myself and other people to Linux :)

Edit: Just read in the Italian shed that ntfs3g will be included in SL3.3... Great work!

i agree to this, it is stable and fast, and does not bug out as much on large transfers.

Can it be used to mount part of the linux file structure on? like /home for example?

You can basically mount everything everywhere ;)

But it isnt as fast as a ext3 partition...
If you really want to share data between Linux and Windos, Use an Ext3 Partition.
There is a ext2 driver for windows available...
