unable to mount ntfs file system
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:49 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)
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.
