Gentoo:Can't write to NTFS volume


I've enabled all the ntfs settings in the kernel except ntfs debugging and I'm am actually able to chown/chmod some of the files on the volume. However when I try to do 'touch test' I get permission denied. When I try to chown some of the files I get "Operation not supported" . Using Fedora 9 I was able to read and write to the volume just fine.
Here is the command I use to mount volume (as root)
mount -t ntfs -w /dev/sdb1 /path/to/share/

thanks for all the help

Are you using ntfs-3g driver? If so, the mount command would be:

Quote:
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /path to mountpoint
e.g. mount-t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/windows

I hope this helps.

sys-fs/ntfs3g is the name of the ebuild you need to be able to use this

ok I emerged the sys-fs/ntfs-3g ok but when i try to mount the sdb1
I get an error that fuse module is not found. When i try to emerge it I get an error that my kernel is too new and I need to create module from source.

in Gentoo you create everything from source...

Eighter you need to rebuild your kernel to include the FUSE (Filesystem in USErspace) -
or you just need to load the module "fuse"

modprobe fuse

and you need to "emerge" of course:

sys-fs/fuse
