Fuse filesystem instead of NTFS?


Hey,

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,

Brandon

How did you specify the filesystem in /etc/fstab, as ntfs or ntfs-3g?

Hey,

I listed it as ntfs-3g as the instructions specified from the ntfs-3g.org website.

Regards,

Brandon

edit: Just a note, i tried listing the filesystem as 'ntfs' and it says it's an unknown filesystem when I issue the 'mount -a' command. I changed it back to 'ntfs-3g' and am still recieving the same warning.

Hey,

It appears as though I've found my problem. If anyone is interested, check this out: ntfs-3g.org/support.html#fuse26 Looks like I HAVE to upgrade my kernel.

Thanks for your help,

Brandon

which kernel have you got,

Have you tried to compile fuse from sources using
./configure --enable-kernel-module

or something similar just check ./configure --help for correct switch;
