Request for testing: FUSE filesystem

Fredrik Wikstrom has notified Power2People that he considers his work on the "FUSE Filesystems" bounty project to be finished.

You can access a test version via this web address:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/26 ... aros-filesysbox-ntfs3g.7z

The installation procedure is as follows:
copy filesysbox/filesysbox.library sys:libs
copy ntfs-3g/ntfs3g-handler sys:l

The archive includes an example mountlist file in ntfs-3g called "NTFS0".

For a list of the requirements that must be met by software, please visit:
http://power2people.org/projects/fuse/

Power2People relies on the AROS community to test if a bounty project has been successfully completed. So, please post a comment if you have encountered any problems or know other reasons why the bounty project cannot be considered to be completed just yet.

Thank you.

I will need some newbie help.

What I did:

Copied ntfs3g-handler to SYS:L and filesysbox.library to SYS:Libs
Inserted an NTFS formatted pendriver

Poseidon reported insertion of pendrive but the partition did not mount.

EDIT: the same pendriver formatted in FAT is correctly automounted

Next I did:

mount NTFS0

The effect was that in the info command output there was:

NTSF0: Not a DOS disk

What is worse however is that the pendriver became corrupted.

The mount file says that the drive shouldn't have a partition table, which is not the usual case AFAIK. I formatted a flash drive with Windows Vista, and it has an MBR partition table.

I'm currently deciding if I should try to create a "superfloppy" NTFS drive, or integrate ntfs3g-handler with massstorage.class.

EDIT: you can download a new version of massstorage.class here: http://www.cs.ucc.ie/~caffer/amiga/massstorage.class

Put it in "SYS:Classes/USB". It automounts USB NTFS partitions, so you won't need any mount file.

I ran SYS:Tests/fstest on an NTFS flash drive, connected through VirtualBox, and it hasn't completed after more than an hour. It's stuck on "Creating 16 files per depth with size of 1024 bytes ...".

Ah thanks, that helped

But, please forgive my ignorance, even while it's common for a drive to contain a MBR, isn't that were the start cylinder and reserved keywords inside the mountlist comes into place ?

At least if i attach a diskimage from file which contains an MBR, i'm able to mount it correctly (not checked with ntfs-3g yet though).

@Magorium

Does your disk image have an NTFS partition? In theory you can specify the start and end cylinders of your partition manually, but that can be tricky to get right, and the comments in the sample ntfs3g mount file suggest they will be ignored anyway.

@ncafferkey:
No, unfortunately i was not yet able to create a (a manageable) ntfs diskimage file _with_ MBR.

The test case mentioned by me was with a fat32 MBR + partition.

It's indeed tricky to get the numbers right (although afai am able to see right now, much easier todo with an MBR in place).

Yanosh asked earlier for a tool that could displays a correct mountlist for a given image-file for f.e. diskimage.device. I'm still working on that (attempting to extend with ntfs, but somehow the numbers won't add up correctly for me atm). Also there are some questions left that i asked earlier.

Regarding the ntfs3g mountlist: i was a little more optimistic (although i haven't looked at the source-code to verify), as for me it read:

a) "Example DOSDriver"
not suggesting it's a dictating mountlist

b) "This is for ... MBR-less"
not specifically restricting us there, just stating the example is for that kind of partition. It leaves the suggestion it could be with MBR as well.

c) "When LowCyl is 0 HighCyl is ignored.."
Hinting that you can use another value then 0 for LowCyl, but then you are on your own regarding the rest of the values.

As soon as i have crunched the numbers correctly for a non MBR ntfs partition, i'll continue with step 2

It more-or-less completed in 6 or 7 hours, but finished with the error "Not enough memory for MyTestDisk:d-010-000 when doing ExamineAll()!" while cleaning up.

Running the same test on the same drive took about 30 minutes when reformatted to FAT32.

Other problems:
- Case sensitive: "Echo hello to h" -> "Type H" -> object not found
OR "makedir T" -> "Makedir t" -> both T and t exist.
- C:Protect doesn't seem to work.
