Fuse filesystem instead of NTFS?
I'm not encountering so much of a problem as it is an annoyance. I have FC6 and I installed the ntfs-3g driver from source packages (along with its fuse dependency which was also from source) and all was well with the world. I edited my fstab to automatically mount my ntfs partition at boot. Upon boot, it goes so fast I can't read it, but it fails when trying to mount the ntfs partition. So, I get to the terminal, log in as su, mount -a, after a warning that I have a deficient kernel, upgade to at least 2.6.20, and some functionality of the ntfs driver will be lost, it mounts the ntfs partition. When I issue the mount command, it says the filesystem type for hda1 (ntfs partition) is fuse. I can read and write to the ntfs partition after all of this.
My question is, how can I get it to mount at startup? I put the 'force' option in the fstab and it still will not mount. I'm hoping that I can avoid upgrading the kernel, as it would my first time and it sounds like a daunting task.
Thanks in advance,
