Description ericm24x7 2007-06-27 15:15:25 UTC
Description of problem:
ntfs-3g just released a stable version 1.616 on June 17. Fedora's development
version currently has 1.516. Maybe it would be a good time to rebuild the
package with the new version to resolve some major issues.

Major visible changes since the last stable release:

  o  new: install executables to the root file system otherwise 
          mount could fail during boot
  o  fix: any kind of file size change failure returned 
          "Operation not permitted"
  o  fix: file close failure was not always reported
  o  fix: unmount failure was not always reported
  o  fix: file creation always gave "I/O error" if the $MFT Bitmap
          wasn't up-to-date
  o  fix: converting very long file names to Unicode may failed
  o  fix: syslog messages didn't show the low level error detail

Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-06-27 15:20:06 UTC
We're holding on this, waiting for FUSE to update.

Comment 2 ericm24x7 2007-07-11 00:03:54 UTC
I just compiled the latest ntfs-3g release today (1-710) on existing fuse
development build:
fuse-devel 2.6.5-2.fc8
fuse-libs 2.6.5-2.fc8

Running some integrity tests right now: 
1. Copying files to USB stick (NTFS formated) w/ 8Gb capacity (use md5sum for
checksum), then reverse copy then do checksum to check.
2. Transfering 200GB+ worth of files then do checksum. (files as large as 16GB each)

I'm not sure if the above fuse build has the change(s) you need to update and
build ntfs-3g into fc8.

I'm going to update ntfs-3g shortly, as soon as fuse is done (doing it right now).
