I've posted this question already stackoverflow but got no answer: click
Since I'm having this problem on Ubuntu I repost my question here. I hope this is not forbidden.
I'm developing an (Qt) application which should run under Windows and Linux. So, I want to be able to develop under Windows and Linux, too.
Therefore I have stored my project (as git repo) on a NTFS partition which I mount under Linux (Ubuntu 13.10). To avoid the rights problem of the compiled executable I set the shadow build directory to my home folder under Linux.
This approach work quit good so far. But there are some effects that make me worry: If I stage some changed files (with smartgit), smartgit doesn't reflect that I have stage them. They are still displayed as unstaged.
Similar thing when commiting: After the commit, the commited changes are still display as if they where not commit. But in the log I can see they are commited. Closing an reopen the repo "solves" this issues or is a workaround at least.
But I have concerns that I break my repo using it on a NTFS partition under Linux. Or is there no risk that my repo is getting corrupted one day using it that way?
