i'm trying to mount an external harddrive (fantom 1tb) which is pretty new, been using it in windows for a week or so

i added the line to my /dev/fstab

Code:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/extdisk ntfs rw,defaults 0 0

when i type mount -a, i get the following message:

Code:
FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.22.18/modules.dep: No such file or directory
fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first

i know the drive is attached because:

Code:
root@debian:/dev# cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
  Vendor: MICRONET Model: FANTOM DRIVE     Rev: 2.10
  Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI  SCSI revision: 02

similarly i know its sda1 because:

Code:
root@debian:/dev# tail -f /var/log/messages

anywho...  this is a fresh plug.  i followed the quickstart.  i think i also intalled ntfs-3g and lighttpd and wget

the error message seems specific to the plug, and i can't seem to get around it.  any ideas?

Best guess:  It looks like you're running the original kernel, which didn't have many modules built into it by default.  THe NTFS file system hasn't been handled well by Linux -- especially in RW mode -- until recently.  In any event, it requires the FUSE (user-level file system code) package to work.

If I recall, I could not get an NTFS file system to mount under the Linux that came with the Plug.  I don't know if it is possible to pull down some packages to allow it to work with that kernel or not.  However, I do know the Alpha-6 load (2.6.30-rc6) and later kernels you'll find here will accommodate NTFS file systems -- at least after you "aptget install ntfs-3g".

YMMV.
