Thread: ntfs-config and external drive

  1. #1

    Default ntfs-config and external drive

    Hi,
    I've problem with an external drive (usb drive with 3 NTFS partitions) , when I enable read-write option a message say only root can mount these partitions, not the same for an internal NTFS partition, just works fine.

    How I can solve this?

    If you're talking version 11.0 of Suse, you can add a link that causes external ntfs drives to automount read-write when they are plugged in. Are we talking version 11.0 of Suse?

    In openSUSE 10.3 or 11.0 you execute a one-time setup command to create a link that replaces the normal driver for automounting ntfs (restricted permissions) with the ntfs-3g driver for automounting ntfs (world-writable). Thereafter when you plug in a usb drive with ntfs filesystem it will automount as world writeable with permissions drwxrwxrwx.
    The one-time command is to open a terminal and enter this:
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g /sbin/mount.ntfs
    That might help.

    when I plug in my external USB drive, just see the drive is plugged but don't open (only root can mount ecc...)

    Need to reboot the machine?

    What do you get from:
    rpm -q libfuse2 ntfs-3g
