Subject: ntfs-3g needed to prevent "incorrect mount option" error during automount of NTFS media
Date: Sun, 07 Mar 2010 09:12:08 -0800
Package: live-helper
Version: 1.0.3-2

I recently used the Debian Live 503 AMD64 Gnome Desktop image to  
repartition a Windows 7 machine with `gparted`. It basically worked well,  
except that during the repartitioning of my main hard disk, `/dev/sda`,  
when I was resizing an NTFS partition and making room for swap and ext3  
partitions, a number of error dialogs popped open which read "incorrect  
mount option". The error messages seemed to be unimportant, though, as  
`gparted` was able to complete all of the operations successfully. Also,  
the error dialogs were not generated by `gparted` itself because `gparted`  
continued while I was reading and closing them.

Later, when I attached a USB external hard disk to the machine (still  
running Debian Live), I saw the same error message. This disk had a small  
FAT16 partition, but was mostly NTFS. I wanted to be able to edit the  
contents of the NTFS partition of the external disk, so I installed  
`ntfs-3g`. When I unplugged the external disk, and re-plugged it back in,  
the disk was automatically mounted and an icon appeared on my desktop for  
the disk. This led me to the conclusion that an automount operation was  
trying to mount with type `ntfs-3g`, but the package was not installed.  
Indeed, looking through the source lists  
(http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/release/current-live/source/tar/), the  
`ntfs-3g` package is only included with the rescue version of Debian Live.

I think that to prevent these types of problems, the `ntfs-3g` package  
should be included with all Debian Live versions.

thanks for reporting it, however, the official prebuild debian-live 
media strictly only contain packages what tasksel gives us by installing 
{gnome|kde|lxde|xfce}-desktop, desktop, laptop and standard task.

reassigning to tasksel so that the tasksel maintainers can decide if 
they want to include it in their tasks definition.

Regards,
Daniel

thanks

I don't think this is appropriate for tasksel, especially not as it would 
also affect other architectures than x86.

If live-helper supports automatic configuration of a system to mount NTFS 
partitions then *live-helper* should ensure the package is installed. This 
is similar to the way that debian-installer will install certain packages 
if certain features are used or detected.

If the user set this up himself, then he should also have installed ntfs-3g 
himself.

Cheers,
FJP
