Following the improvement made by the linux-NTFS team on write access
for NTFS, in the project ntfs-3g, we are currently writing a
specification which review the different options available to implement
it, and propose a way to make it easily installable.
The idea is not to make it default, because there is still some issue
that are not acceptable for a default install, but trying to make it
really easily installable for new users.
Our suggestions are :
- Make it known by bringing it into main, and create a desktop file for
- Make it easily configurable :
- External devices : there is currently no easy way to mount
them with ntfs-3g. Our specification try to solve this problem, with
a zero config method.
- Internal devices : Changing /etc/fstab is the only way for them. We
should provide an easy documentation to do it.
I wanted to have some feedback of the community before register it in
All comments, thoughts, and ideas are welcome.
