NTFS for openSuse 10.1... How?


I'm planning to change to openSuse 10.1 but first of all I try to get knowledge about that driver what makes the NTFS partitions writable/readable in all. I guess it's ntfs-3g or so. I would ask where should I get that, or does Suse have it already? If it does, how can I install it?

Instructions please per lines.
Thx!

OpenSuse 10.1 does not have native NTFS R/W support

I can tell you that it is built into Fedora 7 which I just installed yesterday and seems to work quite nicely

for a direct DL of the NTFS driver go here http://www.ntfs-3g.org/

sorry to take so long to get back to you
I'm not sure if the Fedora binary would work for OpenSuSe your best bet I would say is to DL the tarball and compile it yourself

there are instruction on installing NTFS R/W support for OpenSuSe here
