      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

NTFS-3g Installation

Recommended Posts

If you're a Windows user like me and you don't want to give up your NTFS partitions and still use Linux, there is a way! NTFS-3g is a driver that allows for read and write access to NTFS partitions without having to boot up Windows.

 

I was looking around on my OpenSUSE install and came across this guide for installing ntfs-3g (and fuse). It should work for Mandriva as well (I'll definitely be trying it as soon as 2007 final is released and post if it works there too).

 

Anyway, the guide is here.

You can also add "ntfs-config" which touches the default HAL policies, so that an external harddisk would be automounted using ntfs-3g instead of the regular ntfs driver:

It works fine here (Arch Linux) although I'm slightly annoyed about it having many (chained) GNOME dependencies without any terribly good reason...

Agreed. For some reason it's telling me that I don't have libglade installed, but my version is 2.6 something according to YaST.

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you

installed software in a non-standard prefix.

 

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PACKAGE_CFLAGS

and PACKAGE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.

See the pkg-config man page for more details.

 

Any ideas?

I had no probz bulding it here, but the Arch Linux packages are monolithic, while the SuSE ones are splitted. I guess for building the driver you need libglade-devel which isn't installed.

You're right. Installed libglade-devel and was able to do the install (on OpenSUSE).
