When I try to mount my Seagate FreeAgent USB Drive, I get:
Error mounting: mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
When I try to create/mount a ntfs partition on my sdb drive to be later used as a Samba share, I get:
Error creating file system: Cannot run mkfs: cannot spawn 'mkntfs -f -L "MyFiles" /dev/sdb2': Failed to execute child process "mkntfs" (No such file or directory)
I realize that I need the drivers so my system recognizes nfts files. My system is telling me I may already have them when I try to install fuse-ntfs-3g:
Package fuse-2.8.304.e16.x86_64 already installed and latest version.
Are there any other prerequisites? Please advise when you can. Thanks, Dave
