After a few weeks of mucking around with Android stuff it's soon time for the yearly backup so I tried to mount an external NTFS USB drive by following this guide... http://beginlinux.wordpress.com/2009/03/18/mounting-an-ntfs-drive-in-debian/
After installing "ntfs-3g" and "libfuse2" the USB drive is recoginzed OK with
fdisk -l | grep NTFS
/dev/sdc1 1 121601 976760001 7 HPFS/NTFS
But when I try to mount it I receive the following message and "/mnt/usbdrive" is not accessable but it shows up as following when typing mount
/dev/sdc1 on /mnt/usbdrive type fuse (rw,allow_other)
I mount using...
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usbdrive
WARNING: Deficient Linux kernel detected. Some driver features are
not available (swap file on NTFS, boot from NTFS by LILO), and
unmount is not safe unless it's made sure the ntfs-3g process
naturally terminates after calling 'umount'. If you wish this
message to disappear then you should upgrade to at least kernel
version 2.6.20, or request help from your distribution to fix
the kernel problem. The below web page has more information: http://ntfs-3g.org/support.html#fuse26
Do I need some other packages to read/write NTFS or is it due to older kernel version (188.8.131.52)? As usual any help appreciated!
