    Hello aarca

    I remember that I had some issues getting ntfs-3g support to work. However, the first thing for you to try is to download the fuse dependency via the Turbo Linux graphical installer. Trying to compile from the commandline is sure to create heartache (you'll have to configure all the paths etc. directly). Also, the GUI installer should sort your dependencies automatically.

    If running KDE, click on the KDE menu, select [Turbolinux] -> and click on the [Package management tool].

    Taken from TurboLinux 10f Review -

    "TurboLinux's Package Management is handled by a program called Zabom."
    "Unfortunately, Zabom only works with the packages that are included on the CDs, in order to install packages from other sources, TurboLinux includes a program called Cuickin (Quick Install I guess), which is basically a frontend to rpm -Uvh."

    So TurboLinux uses the standard rpm package system. Check it out and then reply if you need further help! Good luck.

    The moving clock K' appears to K to run slow by the factor (1-v^2/c^2)^(1/2).
    This is the phenomenon of time dilation.
    The faster you run, the younger you look, to everyone but yourself.
