Hi,

I'm trying to replace ntfs-3g with the new kernel 5.15 ntfs3 module but Steam games won't work. Searching the forums I found this post

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1146462-highlight-steam.html

but my problem is different: Steam works like a charm with kernel 5.15 as long as I stick with (FUSE) driver ntfs-3g.

In fstab, Steam gets along with

Code:
LABEL=NTFS_SSD      /mnt/ntfs_ssd   ntfs-3g       locale=es_ES.utf8,users,exec,uid=1000,gid=100


but not with

Code:
LABEL=NTFS_SSD        /mnt/ntfs_ssd   ntfs3       users,exec,uid=1000,gid=100   0 0


(the "locale" option is not supported (needed?) anymore)

Any clue?

Cheers.

Hello, I am very curious, just for general development - did you manage to solve this problem? If so how did you solve it? Please share your experiences...

No, I didn't get to solve this :? I think I'll stick with ntfs-3g until I can get rid of NTFS everywhere (not using Windows that much these days).

/usr/src/linux/Documentation/filesystems/ntfs3.rst:
Code:
Mount Options
=============

The list below describes mount options supported by NTFS3 driver in addition to
generic ones. You can use every mount option with **no** option. If it is in
this table marked with no it means default is without **no**.

   * - iocharset=name
     - This option informs the driver how to interpret path strings and
       translate them to Unicode and back. If this option is not set, the
       default codepage will be used (CONFIG_NLS_DEFAULT).

       Example: iocharset=utf8

grknight, that did the trick, thank you so much!!

So, for future reference, the corresponding line in fstab ended up

Code:
LABEL=NTFS_SSD      /mnt/ntfs_ssd   ntfs3       noatime,users,exec,uid=1000,gid=100,iocharset=utf8   0 0
