    ./configure && make && sudo make install

    then :

    tar zxvf ntfsprogs-1.13.0.tar.gz
    cd ntfsprogs-1.13.0
    ./configure --enable-fuse-module && make && sudo make install

    I copied the post verbatim so it suggests that reading NTFS partitions is difficult in Linux when the opposite is the case.

    The actual problem the poster was referring to was how to reliably write to NTFS paritions. There has been no satisfactory free solution.

    Blame MS. If they relased the specs for NTFS we'd have stable read and write support in a matter of days. As it is, we have to clean room engineer it. However this isn't legal in most of Europe and the US any more due to the EUCD/DMCA. Leaving it up to the good folks in the Far East to sort out.
