Thread: ext4 and ntfs-3g

  1. #1

    Default ext4 and ntfs-3g

    I've played with Fedora F11; Ubuntu 9.04 and now OpenSuse 11.1. The biggest drawbacks I am struggling with are the following:
    1. Can OpenSuse 11.1 implement the ntfs-3g write to NTFS drives and if so how?
    2. Do I need to recompile the kernel to get ext4 support under 11.1? Right now my Ubuntu and Fedora boots can mount the Opensuse file structure but not vice versa since F11 and 9.04 are setup with ext4 root drives.

    1) NTFS - openSUSE
    2) yes, you need to recompile the kernel and enable ext4 support. I'd just grab a newer kernel from the OBS instead. Also a grub which supports Ext4 too and ext4 utils

    Support for ext4 will be provided by openSUSE 11.2

    Still Working on the ext4 modifications. Since I have ext4 partitions available to mount into OpenSuse I am going to leave the OpenSuse root ext3 until I successfully mount one of the other ext4 partitions first.

    Found this HowTo -- Ext4 support on OpenSuse 11.1 -- thru a google search and it looks simple enough - just time consuming, but hey I am making my own software and OS for free. Take that UNCLE BILL.

    Default ext4 Success

    [QUOTE=BobLfoot;2038436]The link worked just as advertised. With a few minor adaptations on my part.

    Use Yast to download Kernel Sources for what kernel I was running.

    went to /usr/src and cp kernel....default to kernel....ext4dev

    Then followed the instructions to xconfig, make and grub the ext4dev kernel.

    BIG OOPS - my nvidia driver crashed with the new kernel -- No real surprise it used to crash with each new Fedora Core Kernel release also.

    Right or Wrong I downloaded from NVIDIA.com the latest driver for my card and ran the script on my new kernel.

    Worked wonderful.

    BTW - left / as ext3 just using ext4 to access partitions already setup that way right now.
