What happened when you tried to MOUNT the drives AFTER making the indicated changes?

What message did you get?

Also post the output of the "mount" command by itself.

BTW: On my 10.1 system I tried the RPM distribution of captive which was posted.

I had some problems with it so I downloaded the source code.

When I initially tried to compile it, the ./configure command reported that gnome-vfs-modules was missing from my system.

I then

urpmi libgnome-vfs2_2-devel (or something very similiar)

and the ./configure command would run.

I reran it with ./configure --prefix=/usr and it took off.

When done I typed

make

then

make install

Again I ran captive-install-acquire to make sure that it had the windows drivers loaded (it did) and it complained that there were no NTFS partitions around. I clicked FINISH.

I checked my fstab to be sure that the NTFS partitions were correct, then I umounted them

umount /mnt/windows

and then

captive-install-fstab

After doing this I edited /etc/fstab again and commented OUT the /mnt/windows line

I then typed

mount /mnt/captive-system

(BTW: SYSTEM is the name I gave my drive under WINDOWS...)

And off it went without any problems whatsoever.

I've moved gigs of files back and forth with no issues.

When I try to mount ntfs drive it gives me the following error. What does it mean?

Preparing LUFS kernel module... Run /usr/share/lufs/prepmod if problems occur.
Kernel sources /lib/modules/2.6.8-24-default/build do not contain 'include' subdirectory at /usr/bin/captive-lufsd line 194
main::build_gcc('/lib/modules/2.6.8-24-default/build', '2.6.8-24-default', '/var/lib/lufs/lufs.ko') called at /usr/bin/captive-lufsd line 292
main::build('/lib/modules/2.6.8-24-default/build', '2.6.8-24-default', '/var/lib/lufs/lufs.ko') called at /usr/bin/captive-lufsd line 156

I've got SuSE 9.2 btw....

This is a Mandrake forum.

I just thought that the question might be not distribution specific and someone could have an answer...

Ok, it's not quite distro specific... but the specifics of the distro change the answer here.


You are missing the lufs kernel modules.

These are provided in Mandrake on a seperate RPM.

Once installed these will be autoloaded by the attempt to run captive.

This: "run /usr/share/lufs/prepmod "

Is a generic message which assumes you have compiled the captive stuff from source, and is now telling you how to fix the problem...

However it doesn't apply to Mandrake.

So the above doesn't help you much.

Thanks for the response. I've got a feeling that not many use a captive anyway and are happy without ntfs writing. However, it is quite painful to migrate from Windows to Linux without this feature. Actually I was trying to avoid converting my ntfs partitions into fat32, because to do it I would have to move the stuff I keep there somewhere. Well, it's a drag. Since the project is abandoned it is very difficult to find any help on installing and running it.

Support for it is falling by the wayside now that the newer kernels are starting to support NTFS writing.

However I'll wait to the next kernel rev before I trust it...
