Topic: ntfs-3g is working on Wl-500g Premium kernel 2.4

Item contains outdated info. Solution is found!!! Please read thread responses below!

I have compiled ntfs-3g for wl-500 Premium running kernel 2.4. It works with my 130 MB USB flash quite stable.

BusyBox v1.11.2 (2008-10-21 21:06:27 EEST) built-in shell (ash)

However when I try to mount my 160 GB external USB hard drive, happens pretty much the same as described here: http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/BuildNTFS3G

The ntfs-3g user-space executable  locks up (or locks any process that attempts to access it) until reboot.

At first that happened also with my USB flash. Then I noticed that I have to wait some seconds before start to do something with mounted partition. I do not know how much time I should wait for USB HDD to work:)

It seems that mips or arm platforms even with kernel 2.6 doesn’t support ntfs-3g without patching the kernel: http://forum.ntfs-3g.org/viewtopic.php?t=115 Could anyone confirm that? Is there anyone who is using ntfs-3g with kernel 2.6 on mips or arm platform?

How did I compile my ntfs-3g package? First, I patched the kernel. Patch is here: http://www.abcsolutions.lv/openwrt/016-fuse-ntfs-3g-mips.patch Put it in "trunk/target/linux/brcm-2.4/patches"

Second. ntfs-3g doesn't require the FUSE user space package anymore, but still needs FUSE kenel module. I added a new patch to FUSE package (http://www.abcsolutions.lv/openwrt/fuse-2.5.3/patches/113-DCACHE_BUG.patch). At http://www.abcsolutions.lv/openwrt/ you will find my FUSE kernel 2.4 package and ntfs-3g package. My FUSE package might conflict  with the original fuse package for kernel 2.6. Remove the original one.

Copy my packages in "trunk/packages" , type

make menuconfig

and select FUSE kernel module and ntfs-3g packages. Then build the image.

After mounting NTFS partition, wait some seconds before start to do something with mounted partition. Notice that you wont see filenames with non-Ascii characters. For solution, please please look at http://ntfs-3g.org/support.html#locale .

I'm posting this info to rise discussion how to solve issue with large disks. Could it be FUSE or ntfs-3g issue? ntfs-3g page has info that:

FUSE kernel driver included in Linux kernels before version 2.6.9 are unsafe and prone to data loss.

Re: ntfs-3g is working on Wl-500g Premium kernel 2.4

My 160 GB HDD is working too.

Re: ntfs-3g is working on Wl-500g Premium kernel 2.4

I am glad to hear it worked. I am trying this again (I had my own patches which were basically same thing except I defined EXPORT_SYMTAB in c-r4k.c, your way probably more proper) but it didn't seem to do the trick (I'm using with owfs & hello sample program). Will try again.

Re: ntfs-3g is working on Wl-500g Premium kernel 2.4

I still do not understand why it sometimes locks up. I'm mounting in directory /mnt

If I create subdirectory (for example /mnt/usb ) and mount there, then ntfs-3g user-space executable locks up always.

Re: ntfs-3g is working on Wl-500g Premium kernel 2.4

It looks like I have found a solution! I can mount ntfs in subdirectories. Now I have running samba server with RW shared 160 GB HDD ntfs partition.

fuse's dev.c must be patched more (look at http://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=8874). function static inline int fuse_copy_do must look like:

static inline int fuse_copy_do(struct fuse_copy_state *cs, void **val,
                   unsigned *size)
{
    unsigned ncpy = min(*size, cs->len);
    if (val) {
        //patch from mailing list ,it is very important ,otherwise,can' mount , or ls mount point will hang
        flush_cache_all();

        if (cs->write)
            memcpy(cs->buf, *val, ncpy);
        else
            memcpy(*val, cs->buf, ncpy);
        *val += ncpy;
    }
    *size -= ncpy;
    cs->len -= ncpy;
    cs->buf += ncpy;
    return ncpy;
}

The FUSE package patch file http://www.abcsolutions.lv/openwrt/fuse-2.5.3/patches/113-DCACHE_BUG.patch is updated.

Actually I should test if it is needed to patch the kernel at all.

For me, on trunk, this patch isn't enough on trunk, only on 7.09. If you look here these are the fuse packages they work absolutely fine on 7.09 (fuse 2.4.2), but not on trunk still hang. They already had this patch.

http://home.mag.cx/openwrt/source/mk/kamikaze/

Then again last time I tried with both patches still had problems

Re: ntfs-3g is working on Wl-500g Premium kernel 2.4

You know hold it test the kernel anyway. I just got at least the hello example to work with these packages:
src owfs http://home.mag.cx/openwrt/kamikaze-svn-asus/packages/

No kernel patch. Will have to see...

Misha

EDIT: works ok in debug mode, hangs otherwise...

The patch http://www.abcsolutions.lv/openwrt/fuse-2.5.3/patches/113-DCACHE_BUG.patch is against my fuse package version 2.5.3, see http://www.abcsolutions.lv/openwrt/fuse-2.5.3/ and it depends from http://www.abcsolutions.lv/openwrt/016-fuse-ntfs-3g-mips.patch

Thanks saw them yesterday. They are basically same as mine with minor differences (you have more #defines in FUSE patch and your kernel patch with Makefile mods looks more proper than my define). I will try again with new kernel later.

Re: ntfs-3g is working on Wl-500g Premium kernel 2.4

I must say that my ntfs-3 is very stable. Even more - I changed locale with iconv (see this http://blog.chinaunix.net/u/22617/showart_297332.html) and now I have national characters support on my router.

And it, again, works with SAMBA.

Re: ntfs-3g is working on Wl-500g Premium kernel 2.4

Still having some problems. Seems to work in debug mode, but not otherwise (e.g. hello -d a).

Ok, here is my kernel patch that I am using:

My understanding last time I checked was this was not exactly true... there are still kinks when transferring with a lot of bandwith no? Has this been fixed recently?

Thank you
Misha

p.s. also my understanding this is why 2.4 is staying in 8.08.

Thanks. I saw that. I think mine is just a hack for yours the "proper" way. If I check /proc/ksyms r4k_flush_cache_page is there and if I don't have it in my kernel fuse complains and won't insmod whereas with it there it loads fine. Know any other difference between the two?

Thanks

and to run

./script hello

My openwrt is at /home/misha/src/openwrt/trunk so you would have to change (search -> replace) in script. Would you mind trying it out and letting me know if it works? Try both:

mkdir /tmp/a
./hello /tmp/a
ls /tmp/a

(hangs for me on ls)

and

./hello -d /tmp/a

(works for me)

if that doesn't work well.

Thanks
Misha

Re: ntfs-3g is working on Wl-500g Premium kernel 2.4

does the hello uses libfuse or fuse-utils? Probably there is a problem with hello itself or libfuse or fuse-utils. ntfs-3g uses only fuse kernel module. my understandig is that for kernel 2.4 the fuse.o latest release is 2.5.3 (http://fuse.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/FAQ#What_version_of_FUSE_do_I_need_to_use_FUSE_with_Linux_2x2e.4x3f.).

libfuse and fuse-utils you can use from latest kernel 2.6 releases.

Yes, neither works I've tried both (only in debug mode). hello uses libfuse which uses the fuse module I believe.

Worst case I can just run owfs with -o debug for fuse too. Not sure what the downside is. I have too much on that owfs (ac/heat control, temp sensors, etc)

I think you should test if ntfs-3g works. If it does, then we can start a new thread to discuss fuse problems?! If you confirm that ntfs-3g works for you, I could release a patch that enables ntfs-3g with iconv support.

Ok. Know a quick way to make a ntfs partition on a flash drive using preferrably OpenWRT? Thanks Misha

it is not a bad idea to try porting http://www.linux-ntfs.org/doku.php?id=mkntfs there is a makefile http://trac.nslu2-linux.org/optware/browser/trunk/make/ntfsprogs.mk
