Description Andrea Borgia 2000-08-09 09:10:21 EDT
The installer correctly recognized my NTFS partition, wrote a good fstab accordingly
but then the kernel complained that there was no NTFS module. I know NTFS under
Linux is no good, but either we ship the readonly version or we remove ntfs support from
the installer.
Comment 1 Alan Cox 2000-08-09 13:41:27 EDT
Agreed. This is an installer problem then. 
Comment 2 Preston Brown 2000-08-14 11:07:35 EDT
kernel issue.
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2000-08-15 09:46:54 EDT
Installer issue
We dont ship NTFS as policy - its not stable enough to support even R/O
Comment 4 Erik Troan 2000-08-16 08:52:05 EDT
NTFS r/w trashes disk
NTFS r/o trashes buffer cache
