I have problems with xbmc failing to mount my usb external hd.

As I know that xbmc uses devicekit I tried to mount it via devkit-disks myself (version 007 as provided by opensuse 11.2).

However, 'devkit-disks --mount /dev/sdb1' results in a 'unknown filesystem ntfs'-error (caused by mount). Apparantly this is correct as opensuse uses ntfs-3g by default (and the kernel ntfs module isn't even enabled/compiled), right ?

What is the proper way to circumvent this, and let devicekit (=udev I belief) use ntfs-3g ? pmount /dev/sdb1 works fine, as well as automounting by kde 4.3. Both mount it using ntfs-3g (ntfs-3g properly installed policy rules for HAL)
