I need a NTFS-3G version later than the one shipped with lucid lynx because I want to make use of the new hide_hid_files and hide_dot_files mount options, which are not present before version 2010.8.8.
Ever since I compiled and installed the latest version of NTFS-3G via checkinstall, whenever I plugin a NTFS mass storage device, Ubuntu chooses the ntfs kernel module upon the ntfs-3g fuse driver to mount it. I don't know how to tell my system to use the 3g driver.
mount -t ntfs-3g and
fstab entries work just fine.
