Hello i want to automount my ntfs partition at boot with user read write support using internal kernel ntfs driver because i do too much read and copy action on my ntfs partition and ntfs3g driver is too slow about 15mb sec. write

how can i do it

my fstab file

/dev/sda1 / ext4 noatime 1 2
/dev/sda4 /home ext4 noatime 0 1
/dev/sda5 /media/yedek ntfs rw,user 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto user,noauto,ro 0 0

with this ntfs volume mounted at boot but only root can view read and change files i tried adding uid:1000 gid:100 and umask:707 options but nothing worked
should i change mount points user permissions is it safe?

I dont know if it is possible for you to use ntfs-3g.
I have emerged the packet ntfs3g and I have modified my fstab ntfs entry in ntfs-3g.

In my gentoo box this solves the same problem

I tried the same mask, and other with a lot of mount options, but the only user able to write an ntfs volume was root.

arabcian,

The kernel ntfs driver doesn't really have write support.
Its limited to changing the content of existing files - provided the file size does not change. Its been this way for years as it used to trash filesystems and this made it "mostly harmless".

You must use ntfs-3g
