Description Giuseppe Raimondi 2001-04-24 11:09:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14 i686)

the ntfs module is not available (no ntfs.o)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/bla /mnt/bla

Actual Results:  mount: fs type ntfs not supported by  kernel

Expected Results:  read only access to a ntfs partition

I'm not sure if it is meant to be like that. Any reasons or just forgotten?
in the documentation of seawolf kernel I could find only the usual warnings
about mountig ntfs rw

2.4 kernels have a broken NTFS. People are working on improving NTFS support,
but Microsoft isn't exactly helping (obviously).
Once NTFS is becoming more stable, we'll enable it again for an errata kernel.
