Code: Select all
joost@xbox-360 ~ $ cat /etc/filesystems
# /etc/filesystems
#
# This file defines the filesystems search order used by a
# 'mount -t auto' command.
#

# Uncomment the following line if your modular kernel has vfat
# support and you want mount to try vfat.
#vfat

# Keep the last '*' intact as it directs mount to use the
# filesystems list available at /proc/filesystems also.
# Don't remove it unless you REALLY know what you are doing!

I also have the same error when opening my ntfs external drive with dolphin, I have both kde and gnome on this system.
If I boot kde and use dolphin, I get error, if I log into gnome and use dolphin, get same error.
In gnome if I use the gnome file manager, works fine. I think it is another kde issue.

Gentoo QA files a bug for this already.

If this is going to take too long I'll patch our own version so the problem is resolved.

I'm not on my main laptop at the moment, so cannot try the following myself, but, strictly speaking, shouldn't the "ntfs-3g" be placed before the asterisk at the end of /etc/filesystems, not after it?

Linux Fundamentals - Chapter 6. The Linux file system tree:

The /proc/filesystems file displays a list of supported file systems. When you mount a file system without explicitly defining one, then mount will first try to probe /etc/filesystems and then probe /proc/filesystems for all the filesystems without the nodev label. If /etc/filesystems ends with a line containing only an asterisk (*) then both files are probed.

Has someone tried putting the "ntfs-3g" before the asterisk to see if it still works?

EDIT: Yes, it's supposed to go before the asterisk: http://www.cnblogs.com/cute/archive/201 ... 61516.html

Works, the partition can now be mounted as usual.
Thank you.

I've contacted upstream Gentoo about this. Either they will fix it soon (so we can merge it for Entropy) or either Upstream will fix it soon, so we can merge it for Entropy and if not, WE will fix it so we can merge it for Entropy.

Thanks guys.

Next update (a big one with new Python 2.7) will also install the patched udisks.
Will be out later today.
