Do you think you can already share the NTFS3G filesystem?


Ideally it should be released along with an updated massstorage.usbfd driver so that NTFS partitions on USB disks are auto mounted using NTFS3G instead of the m68k NTFileSystem.

IMO, this SMB for FUSE FS is a lot more interesting as it targets several operating systems.

Is there a certain amount of money you want for the work?
will there be a bounty for this, or do people just send you money?

The intention is to have a bounty on amigabounty.net:

http://amigabounty.net/index.php?func ... viewproject&projectid=112

I don't have a particular sum in mind but the higher the money the more motivated I would be (hopefully).

ext3 still has some use but to be honest ext2 is pretty useless now day an age, even ext3 is getting old. Generally speaking, I use ext4 for all my personal devices and the only servers what I manage which have ext3 were built 5+ years ago. If you are looking at doing ext3, how much extra work would ext4 be?

I'm not talking about writing a new file system from scratch but about porting Fuse-ext2 and it's intended use is for data interchange mainly and not to replace existing native file systems like SFS or JXFS.

There is also Ext4fuse but it's little endian only and doesn't have any write support.

Its better to give a hint about what amount of money you want and add your paypal here. How long do you expect it to take to finish this port?

I wouldn't feel right taking money for something I haven't done yet. If people want to donate for my past work they can do so using the donation link on my website.

It didn't take me much more than a week to have the first usable version of NTFS3G. With any luck this shouldn't take too long either since I should be able to reuse much of the device i/o and disk cache code from NTFS3G here.

I've just sent a message (using the contact form) to amigabounty asking about the bounty. At least when I messaged them about a week ago about problems validating my account there I got a reply relatively quickly.

I just found and fixed probably the only major bug remaining in filesysbox (after several hours of rewriting code and debugging) so a public release of filesysbox and NTFS3G should hopefully not be too far away now.

Also I have started work on Fuse-Ext2 and have the filesystem part of it already almost compiled and linked. All that it's missing currently that's stopping it from being linked is the amiga_io_manager part (device i/o backend).

I will support it, but is there a EXT3/EXT4 version?

"Fuse-ext2 is a multi OS FUSE module to mount ext2 and ext3 file system devices and/or images with read write support."

Yes I have seen that, is there a EXT4 version PLANNED?

http://serverfault.com/questions/4031 ... -partition-image-via-fuse

I see that is a DRIVER

P.S.

Why bounty? Wasn`t this mentioned at AmiWest as part of AmigaOS development we pay OS for?

According to the link you mentioned Fuse-Ext2 has some kind of experimental Ext 4 support which is not mentioned in the readme, so that should (hopefully) be working in the port as well.

Also once filesysbox gets released publically it will be possible for anyone who is interested to do FUSE file system ports with it or even write new file systems from scratch.

If you had paid enough attention you would have also heard that filesysbox and NTFS3G are not Hyperion projects. They are included simply as contributions.

As Steven Solie paid for these two projects out of his own pocket I don't think it's reasonable to expect him to do that again. Anyway, donating to the eventual (?) bounty is optional. If you don't want to do it then just don't.

Fuse-Ext2 progress update:

Resized Image

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/26 ... /ext2fs_first_version.jpg

The image shows an ext3 file system being mounted under AmigaOS 4.x using the current Fuse-Ext2 port. The "disk" itself is a VirtualBox .vdi file that I created specifically for testing use (it has Ubuntu installed on it).

The archives in the "Downloads" directory don't have the correct default icons because I don't have permission to access the files (I'll have to look into that).

brilliant! this has made me a very happy amigan this evening. a few questions for you:

1. will e2fsprogs be available as command-line tools?
2. any early indications on performance?

i can remember early builds of fuse-ext2 on OSX and it wasn't a speed demon. but that was a few years ago, and hey, even if it's glacial, it will be wonderful to have read/write support for disks from my SUSE boxes. thank you so much for your work thus far!

I'm interested as it's very useful to be able to access & transfer files from Linux/Amiga partitions from Workbench.
