Unhappy Weird problem about ntfs-3g and mount in debian testing


Hi, guys, I use ntfs-3g to mount my Windows partition in debian testing. It worked well one year before. However, after one update, I find something weird in my system.

Here is my /etc/fstab:

Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>

proc    /proc   proc    defaults    0   0
/dev/sda3   /   ext3    errors=remount-ro   0   1
/dev/sda6   /home   ext3    defaults    0   2
/dev/sdb1   /media/Documents    ntfs-3g uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=022,fmask=133   0   2
/dev/sdb2   /media/Software ntfs-3g uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=022,fmask=133   0   2
/dev/sdb3   /media/Video    ntfs-3g uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=022,fmask=133   0   2
/dev/sdb4   /media/Video2   ntfs-3g uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=022,fmask=133   0   2
/dev/sda5   /media/home_win ntfs-3g uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=022,fmask=133   0   2
/dev/sda7   /usr    ext3    defaults    0   2
/dev/sda4   none    swap    sw  0   0
/dev/hda    /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0   0

#/dev/fd0   /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0   0
When I start my PC, the system always tells me that mount couldn't recognize unknown option ntfs-3g. However, I can manually mount them as user root with the command:mount -a after booting. It works fine and no error message is given. I can't understand what's wrong with my system.

I googled " debian ntfs-3g mount" but got useless information about how to mount ntfs partition in linux. I visited debian-bug but no bug like this was found.

Could anyone give some suggestions?

Maybe it tries to mount your ntfs filesystems before /usr and /usr/bin/ntfs-3g is not found then?
Have you tried putting the /usr line before the first /media? Or maybe you can copy the files from the package in / (unmounting /usr and creating a /usr there) so you always have the required files to mount your partitions.

Thanks for your reply! I try it and it works!
