ntfs- i believe it is read only, you may have to modprobe it. There is a line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules you can uncomment to automate that. Last I heard in the 2.4 kernels, ntfs write was experimental and dangerous. I do not believe it is compiled into the kernel so a a recomplile would be necessary.
open office- no
I just got done reading the link I posted... really interesting stuff regarding ntfs linux...
YES - the right modules are very sketchy now.... somewhat stable for file copy only, but no garantee.
A suggestion might be to use Partition Magic to convert the ntfs file system to fat32. I believe that only the current version supports this (not sure). NTFS is going to be an ongoing heartache if you go that direction.
i have partition magic, and heard about the convert ntfs to fat32 but im thinking its like format, you'll lose all the data if you convert it, true? thats why i stuck with fat32.
open office, which means i just need windows for id taging my mp3s and to use speard sheet/word.. i convert my word/sheet files to other formats while saving.
rythmbox is a must have. xmms i use for streams but to catalog all my mp3s and play it, i like rythmbox, its kinda like iTunes for windows.
some good infomation on that site sirpimpsalot. i saved all to disk.
You don't need any special drivers to read or write to an NTFS partition at all. If you just mount the drive and give the type as SMBFS you will have full read/write access. I am not sure if this does the file permissions but it will definately write it to NTFS partition with no problem.
This is what I get
What should I do so i can read files from my windows partition??
root@linux:/home/xpedition# mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/hd
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
or too many mounted file systems
