Question NTFS on DragonFly BSD

Hi!

I have an external USB drive that contains all of my music and other media. Unfortunately it's formatted with NTFS.

Earlier I had a server running FreeBSD 7 serving the content via mt-daapd. When the system drive in the server blew up I decided to give DragonFly BSD a try.

However, it seems that FUSE is not supported on DragonFly. Is there any other way to mount NTFS volumes on DragonFly?

Thanks!

It would seem they have mount_ntfs(8) as well, I can't comment on how functional it is though.. mounting read-only would be a good precaution.

Is FUSEFS ported to DragonflyBSD?

If you you could use NTFS-3G driver thru fusefs and have read/write support.

Also, why you do not switch to FAT32 on your pendrive, need files more then 4GB in size?

I think he was talking about an USB HD and not a pendrive.
