Post Installation of Advance ntfs-3g on Centos 5.2
Hi,
I tried looking up this forum and I believe no body faced this problem.

I am trying to install advance ntfs-3g on my Centos-5.2 (kernel version 2.6.18.1-92) using the rpm. rpm does not install and complains that glibc-2.7 needs to be installed. Centos has glibc-2.5.4. I tried upgrading the glibc on this machine, but seems it cannot be done. (looked few posts on that ...).

I took source package of advance ntfs-3g and it would not compile as it would not find attr/xattr.h file. I changed it to sys/xattr.h because I have it here in my system.

I configured, make and make install and mounted a ntfs volume using stream_interface=xattr. If I try to do get the attributes for a file on this ntfs volume, I get system.ntfs_attrib "No Such Attribute".

getfattr -h -e hex -n system.ntfs_attrib /mnt/msdk1/pagefile.sys

Has this been tried on Centos? Any suggestions?

TIA
Tarot

This is the correct way to do, but you may also have to install the libattr library. Make sure you have
Code:
#define HAVE_SETXATTR 1

in the config.h file generated by ./configure
