Post NTFS and Read-write mode (captive and other solutions) in mandrake 9.1 (bamboo)


NTFS, Read-write, read-only, captive, user, not able to write...

I read and studied and found an answer: Captive
(captive is a patch/extension for a linux/GNU kernel so the computer can read-write on a ntfs, VFAT, etc...)
Captive mount a ntfs drive so it can read, write and compress...
Now the problem.... I can:
mimithebrain@h___ # mount -t captive-ntfs /dev/hda2 /mnt/windows

but can't see the content! Any REAL alternative?

I'm in the dark here , and windows won't work until I replace a file... help, please

Have you run captive-install-acquire to load the ntfs drivers?

NVM, I reloaded the whole system, but, guess what?! I works the captive now, I guess the thing I needed to repair was the thing I needed in order to make captive work, thanks anyways...
