gentoo unable to mount ntfs drive

hello guys i am unable to mount ntfs drives. i emerged ntfs3g with this useflags:

USE="python -hal idn -ipv6 mmx sse sse2 /
-gnome -kde -minimal -qt4 dbus jpeg lock /
session startup-notification thunar udev X /
acl external-fuse udev -debug -suid"

when trying to mount my ntfs drive with this command: mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /storage
i get an error saying this:
fuse: mount failed: Device or resource busy
the strange thing is that mount gives no info about the mounted disk: mount output:

/dev/sda2 on / type ext3 (rw,noatime)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,relatime,size=10240k,mode=755)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/sda6 on /home type ext4 (rw)
shm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
binfmt_misc on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)

i tryed to mount it on arch and slackware without any issue

Did you compile support for ntfs into your kernel?

# DOS/FAT/NT Filesystems
