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
o fix: converting very long file names to Unicode may failed
o fix: syslog messages didn't show the low level error detail
We're holding on this, waiting for FUSE to update.
I just compiled the latest ntfs-3g release today (1-710) on existing fuse
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).
ntfs-3g-1.710-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
