I've searched right now and my FUSE version is: 2.6.3-1.fc6.i386, so the problem might not be from there..The thing is that when I try to mount my windows partition manually, I get this warning:
[HTML]WARNING: Old FUSE kernel module detected. This means, some driver features
are not available (swap file on NTFS, boot from NTFS by LILO),
and unmount is not safe unless you make sure the ntfs-3g process
naturally terminates after calling 'umount'. The safe FUSE kernel
driver is included in the official Linux kernels since version
2.6.20-rc1, or in the FUSE 2.6 software package. Please see the
next page for more help:

....but my FUSE version is greater then 2.6.20!!

What do you see when you run this:
$ dmesg | grep fuse | grep -v audit
fuse init (API version 7.8)
fuse distribution version: 2.6.3
SELinux: initialized (dev hda1, type fuseblk), not configured for labeling
You should have output like mine, above.

The warning message you see is generated when your fuse version is 2.6.2, which is the version distributed by the Fedora project.

You might also want to check here:
$ ls -l /usr/lib/libfuse*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    16 Feb 10 09:59 /usr/lib/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 87816 Feb  7 03:04 /usr/lib/
to make sure your library is correct.

Rep: Reputation: 0 the works ...All I did is I modified the /etc/fstab file:
[HTML]/dev/sda1 /media/c_drive ntfs-3g ro 0 0
/dev/sda5 /media/d_drive ntfs-3g ro 0 0
after I have mounted the partitions manually using:
ntfs-3g /dev/sda5 /media/d_drive/ -o ro
ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/c_drive/ -o ro
.....where "sda1" is my Windows Boot partition( C:\), and "sda5" is my "D:\" partition. The folders
/media/c_drive and /media/d_drive were created previously ....Thanks for the help! btw, that warning with OLD FUSE doesn't make any difference, from what I saw, it works fine (maybe because I have set the rights only to "ro", not "rw").
