Development on this project has moved to https://sourceforge.net/projects/ntfs-3g/
The goals of this project are: create a new Linux kernel driver for the NTFS file system (1.2, 3.x, and later), user space utilities (e.g. format, ntfs check, etc.) and a library to avoid code duplication and provide access to NTFS to other GPL programs.
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3 mounts a NTFS partition as if it were ext2.3.4 couldn't be easier fulll rw control add ro after mount point to make read only. Doc is missing in places
would be nice if it worked compiled and installed the files unfortunately cannot find any docs anywhere on exactly how to mount and read an ntfs drive. Supposedly ntfs mount is included somewhere but not in the packages installed: just utilities like ntfscluster: now why would I care about cluster data when I cant read the ntfs file. Basically need to read an ntfs flashdrive to download my linux iso. Without that can't even install the OS.
