Ntfs under Linux....

Hi!

I just downloaded a file (ftp.iks-jena.de/pub/software/linux/kernel/ntfs-970212.tar.gz)
Now I have some problem installing this.
If I  understand everything right, all I have to do is to unpack those files in /usr/src/linux/fs

Then apply the patch in /usr/src/linux/fs/ntfs/patch/linux

(That is the problem. I don't know how to do that.)

Than all I have to do is to re-compile my kernel.

Can someone tell me if I understand everything right, and how to apply the patch in /usr/src/linux/fs/ntfs/patch/linux??

I read the INSTALL.linux file, is unclear how to do so (unless you are a real Linux guru). Why don't you send an e-mail to the author of the software? It appear in the README file.

The format for patch is :
patch [options] [origfile [patchfile]] [+ [options] [orig-
       file]]...

       but usually just

       patch <patchfile

So in your case you would do :
 
patch /usr/src/linux/fs/ntfs/patch/linux/(name of file)

Let me know how you go,

Regards,

Jason

I'tried patch /usr/src/linux/fs/ntfs/patch/linux
(I was wrong before, linux is the name of the file, not the dir)
When I did that it hangs...
When I tried patch < /usr/src......
I had to answer some quetions. (I did so and everything looks fine.)
But when I run make config I can't chose ntfs in the filesystem part. Is somewthing wrong???
