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"
