Full NTFS Write Access for Linux with "ntfs-3g"


Shortly after the news about a new driver at SlashDot, in German at Pro-Linux-News the Kanotix-Team has packaged and tested it for you. But before it will probably be added to the next release we need more serious testing. That's what this Howto is all about.

Warning!
ntfs-3g is not just a small application, but a real file system driver. If you insist on testing it be prepared to do some manual configuration. It's still early beta, not trivial and impossible for us to support.
Hint: xdxx = for hdxx or sdxx

Again: This is an early beta driver.
Never use it without external backup, and of course not on production systems!!!

HD Install

(scroll down for Live CD Mode)

1. Get rid of the captive-stuff:
# COLUMNS=200 dpkg -l|awk '/captive/{print $2}'|xargs apt-get remove --purge --yes


2. Now download the ntfs-3g-package and install it:
# apt-get update && apt-get install ntfs-3g


3. And now take your time to read the manual (you will find there also solutions for changing languages, or how to avoid strange characters in file names):
# man ntfs-3g


4. You may try mounting:
# mount -o silent,umask=0,no_def_opts,allow_other -t ntfs-3g /dev/xdxx /media/xdxx


5. Finally write into /etc/fstab
/dev/xdxx        /media/xdxx      ntfs-3g silent,umask=0,no_def_opts,allow_other 0 0


ntsf-3g and running Kanotix in LiveCD mode


Again: This is an early beta driver.
Never use it without external backup, and of course not on production systems!!!

Open a console
Step 1
#sudo fix-unionfs

Step 2
#apt-get update && apt-get install ntfs-3g

Step 3
#umount /dev/hdxx

Step 4
#mount -o silent,umask=0,no_def_opts,allow_other -t ntfs-3g /dev/hdxx /media/hdxx

(where hdxX is the ntfs partition)

(An other possibility is to change the fstab like on a HD installation and to update it with rebuildfstab. The partition can be mounted as usual.)

Thx to ntfs-3g-Developers and Kanotix-Team !
