Post FreeBSD 7.0 Release and OpenOffice 2.3
Hi all,
I've a problem for accessing to my files (read and write) with OpenOffice 2.3 on a ntfs-3g mount point under FreeBSD 7.0 release (i386).
All others softwares can read/write without problem (gedit, sound recorder, pdf viewer, etc...), it's only OpenOffice.org which have a problem.

When trying to open a file on ntfs-3g mount, It displays the message (personnal translation in english):
«a parameter for the process running on FILENAME is not valid»
And when trying to write file:
«Write error, a parameter for the process running on FILENAME is not valid»
«General IO error»

Do you know if OOo use a special file access method incompatible with ntfs-3g ?

Some information about the option used:
/etc/fstab:
Code:
/dev/ad4s2      /mnt/windows   ntfs   rw      0   0

mount output:
Code:
/dev/fuse0 on /mnt/windows (fusefs, local, noatime, synchronous)

OOo was never useable with fuse mounts on FreeBSD. This is some strange issue related to file locking which I don't understand completely (in fact, generic VFS kernel code should handle file locking, so that it shouldn't give errors [although this doesn't mean locking shall work according to POSIX semantics]).

Getting this right is an old inhabitant of my TODO list.

It's a problem of fuse4bsd (sysutils/fusefs-kmod port). Patches are welcome ;)
