Read/write support on NTFS using ntfs-3g Driver

2007-09-08 by xpheas
I was looking for a way to get write support on NTFS-partitions and found a package called "ntfs-3g".
The package provides full rw-support and seems to be fully stabe.

Project Page:
www.ntfs-3g.org


Here is a very short HOWTO for installing the driver on Ubuntu Feisty
BASH-Code:
1
sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g

And simply add the driver to your fstab:
BASH-Code:
1
sudo nano /etc/fstab

i.e.
BASH-Code:
1
2
/dev/hda8       /media/hda8     ntfs-3g     defaults,locale=de_DE.utf8   0    0
<device>	<mount point>	<diver>		<options>

To find your locale-settings use:
BASH-Code:
1
more /var/lib/locales/supported.d/local

and change it in the line abrove.

Now remount your device and have fun:
BASH-Code:
1
2
sudo umount /media/hda8
sudo mount /media/hda8
