drive was originally formatted with gparted. formatted with mkfs.ntfs and instead of mount used ntfsmount.
This allows read-write through the ntfs-progs package, but then isnt it writting through the user-space library libntfs.so.10.0.0 instead of the kernel modules uploaded?
Am I right that mount would call the .ko's and ntfsmount would call libntfs... dont both have readwrite access now?
I am a fairly new mailing list user, however very interested in this kernel level driver.
I loaded the kernel level modules yuma posted in my 188.8.131.52 kernel (Slax build if it matters). mounting a drive via mount -o rw /dev/<device> /mnt/<dir> which is sucessful, typing mount shows the mount path and rw, however drive is readonly. Trying to write to the device and you get read-only filesystem message. Looking at the device properties in KDE shows that the permissions are set for Can View Contents only on Owner, Forbidden on Group and Others . /var/log/messages shows kernel NTFS volume version 3.1 (no errors) as does dmesg output.
What kernel are the kernel modules tested with?
Should there be write access?
Am I doing something wrong (as I am new to this project)?
Is this an active project (NTFS-3G is okay but not our needs...Anton or other developers can respond I will fill him in privately..)?
