problem with ntfs drives


hi
i am triple booting ubuntu and slackware and win7.
the problem is that i cant go very deep into my ntfs drives in slackware. but i dont have this problem in ubuntu.
i have ubuntu 11.10 and slackware 13.37.
for example, i cant see any files in c:\users\<username>\documents , but in ubuntu i have everything.
could it be a problem with my ntfs "driver"?
thx in advance

Short answer - yes.
A similar post was made in the forum a couple of weeks ago and it was resolved by upgrading the ntfs driver. But then the path you describe (c:\users\<username>\documents)is very short and slackware should be able to see it.

honeybadger, do you mean the 'ntfs-3g' driver is what needed upgrade?

Hello,
That's very strange, I can see all files on NTFS filesystems. Stock Slackware 13.37 32bit.
(ntfs-3g 2011.1.15).

However, I used a filemanager (not bash). Maybe try a GUI filemanager to explore the drive(s).

could be a codepage problem. have u tried setting the same locale for the system and the file system? utf8 would be the locale of choice.
