NTFS3 Kernel Module

Does anyone can build NTFS3 kernel module for Porteus 5.0 RC2 https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ntfs3-dkms/
I have tried but always failed.

Thanks.

neko,
However ov.act.sh and ov.deact.sh are great scripts, they do a pretty good job.

Even with ov.act.sh and ov.deact.sh (with a few modifications) it allows me to activate Porteus modules (google-chrome.xzm, opera.xzm and onlyoffice.xzm) on my Ubuntu system.

Thanks.

No. The problem is not performance, but the correct work ...
Is it working correctly on other distro?

neko,
The following is a serious issue (not related to persistence mode).

a.xzm containing '/opt/bin/a'
b.xzm containing '/opt/bin/b'

Code: Select all

# ls /opt
dir1   dir2
# activate a.xzm
# ls /opt
bin   dir1   dir2
# ls /opt/bin
a
# activate b.xzm
# ls /opt
bin   dir1   dir2
# ls /opt/bin
b

@Arleson,
Have you ever used swap file on NTFS partition in other distro (e.g. Ubuntu, Arch or whatever) and it has good performance.

neko,
Activating modules in persistence mode is works fine.

But we have to deactivate the modules before shutdown/reboot to restore them to their original state (removing symlinks and .act.new.* and restore .act.org.* to original name).

Thanks.

neko, If I have '/bin/foo' (located inside a persistent device) then I activate a module which also contains '/bin/foo' will that overwrite (ln -sf) '/bin/foo'? Update: That will rename '/bin/foo' to '/bin/.act.org.foo' Don't forget to deactivate that module before shutdown/reboot to restore '/bin/....

OverlayFS Porteus

neko,
I am afraid to activate/deactivate the modules under Overlayfs when in persistence mode.

I'm afraid it will overwrite (ln -sf) and delete (rm -fr) files/directories that are contained in the persistent file (save.dat) or persistent device (e.g. /dev/sdb2).

Thanks.

Activation of modules after boot is not working here.
I'm using it to get around: mloop and then copy the directory to root.
maia, Try activating a module outside of aufs (put a module on ext2/3/4, vfat or ntfs and then activate)

Hi babam I don't have experience using dkms :(
Hi maia, dkms is optional dependencies.
