Description Alex Loginov 2012-10-14 21:07:21 CEST
ntfs-3g must not mount NTFS partitions, labelled as "problem". It's very important for Windows 8, because If operation mount will be happen, then all information will be lost. There is patch in Fedora and in Rosa: https://abf.rosalinux.ru/import/ntfs-3g

Need an NTFS partition to test this with. Anybody have one handy?

Usage:    ntfs-3g [-o option[,...]] <device|image_file> <mount_point>

Options:  ro (read-only mount), remove_hiberfile, uid=, gid=,
          umask=, fmask=, dmask=, streams_interface=.
          Please see the details in the manual (type: man ntfs-3g).

Example: ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows

It's easy to create an ntfs partition, but I don't have w8 (or any plans to get it) so I have no idea how to get the partition labelled as "problem".

Testing complete mga3 32 & 64

Created an ntfs partition on a usb stick and a directory /mnt/windows then mounted using..

# ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/windows

We're unable to verify the windows 8 fix.

This is another changelog style advisory Alex but it's uploaded it as it is. It would be nice to add links to the bzXXXXXX references as we have no idea where they came from.
