Currently, the ntfs-3g ebuild installs ntfs-3g and add mount.ntfs-3g symlink so that "mount -t ntfs-3g" works correctly. But mount autodetect tries to mount NTFS partitions as "-t ntfs".
I think that the ntfs-3g package should also add the /sbin/mount.ntfs symlink, maybe toggled by the symlink USE flag or something. I don't wanna mess with the sbin directory myself, although this is a pretty safe change, it all starts with little things before getting really messy.
Thinking over the problem, I think that creating another USE flag is inappropriate. Using the ntfsprogs USE flag to toggle this behavior should be okay. What do you think?
I've found out about the udev rules file, and it's enough to make KDE automount devices correctly, but from the terminal, it's not yet automatic. Would making the mount.ntfs symlink break anything?
this will be fixed automatically once ntfs3g and ntfsprogs are merged. not sure we want to bother with symlinks in the meantime.
Great news. ntfsprogs will merge ntfs3g's internal ntfsprogs then? Alright, the bugs can be changed to WONTFIX then. I can only change it to resolved.
Symlink present in ntfs3g-2012.1.15-r1. Closing.
