Question NTFS (2.6.22.6) it says readonly file format.


Hi all..

i find 2.6.22.6 kernel and installed in my system. i start work with Windows attached disk which has NTFS file system so i mounted using ntfs.

1 > mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/windows umask=0222 0 0
2 > mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/windows -o rw

but when i going to create a new file on Windows it says.
> /mnt/windows> cat > create

.bash: create: Read-only file system

i used rw and umask=0222 0 0 option but both the time shell says Read only system.. I donot why it is Read only..?

Could you please tell me what is the problem ? it is by kernel? what steps will make me to read/write ntfs ??

Please help me..

Thanks in advance,
Ganesh Kumar R

You can use ntfs-3g.
It's more stable.
