The maintainers of ntfs-3g state that it is now stable for general use. -Mantas, 2007-02-28
I just found this regarding ntfs: http://
There for all you need is the ntfs-config package.
An even better link might be: https:/
With gnome-mount 0.6 in Gutsy, leaving upstream defaults should be enough to get NTFS writing support for partitions not in fstab.
Changing d-i partman to emit a ntfs-3g line to fstab solves it for the fixed partiotions on the installed system.
In the small workshop at UDS there was no opposition against this feature. The driver is very stable and thoroughly tested by upstream,
and in our personal experiences we had no stability concerns.
Proposing for review
2007-05-25 kamion: Mostly OK, but I'm not keen on the proposed partman change; see comment inline in the wiki page.
2007-06-06 kamion: approved following factoring-in of comments from upstream
2007-09-10 kamion: Implementation finished a while ago; marking Implemented.
* Blueprints in grey have been implemented.
