    Wink Another way to mount NTFS external drive on Linpus

    If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    My aa1 worked fine with NTFS Harddrive thanked to smolley advice in the previous threat.

    I crashed the program again, trying to install SynCE to the linpus. A time for a new one, Fedora 10, wow! Downloading the DVD took me 7 hours, twice after the first one broke. Installing the fed10 to the SSD took another 3+. Boosting it took nearly 3 minutes. Everything ran fine after that. The NTFS, the internetsharing with PDA but it was so slow (mine has only 500 M ram).

    Gave it up, reinstall with the original Linpus!
    Only 24 minutes and all has been done.
    The boosting time of Linpus is 10+10+10 seconds.

    This time I chose not to update the software from acer but tried another way (somebody said that before updating the AA1 worked fast with ntfs drive)

    Connecting to the internet
    and as superuser type:

    yum install ntfs-3g

    now just wait and say "Yes"

    It results in flawlessly mounted ntfs with quite fast reading and writing speed.

    In summation: Reinstall the Linpus, don't upgrade but "yum install ntfs-3g"

    You can edit /etc/fstab file to automount NTFS partitions at startup.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thank you.

    I should download Fed10 with Xfce instead of the desktop.

    I gave up the Linpus and start the XFCE fedora 11 for a couple of days.
    It works amazingly on the aspire one. Installation was even faster than the original linpus.
    Boot-time is a little bit slower but much faster than the Fed 10 desktop version I'd tried.

    Except for the "yum install firefox" installed beta version fox that's never run, the rest are awesome:
    Sharing the net from PPC, wi-fi, mounting NTFS.

    Smile Back to Linpus agn

    There is nothing in the market as fast as Linpus Lite! After trying the fed 11 for a month, I've[/url] to roll back to the original Linpus agn.

    This time after install ntfs with yum, I choose not to upgrade with the acer site but
    install Thai font via the add/remove software from xfce-setting control.
