Re: ntfs



If you read the comments at

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=65749

you will see that nobody knows what the legal reasons for not shipping
an ntfs module could be. After all, the code is (i) present in the
kernel source and (ii) objections with regard to "reverse engineering" either do not apply or should apply in the cases of rdesktop & samba as well. Not shipping ntfs.o on legal grounds seems inconsistent to me.


Furthermore, saying that NTFS (read!) support does not work or works only partially or is dangerous is nothing but FUD. It has been working perfectly well for over a year now.

It seems to be the case that ntfs.o continues to be excluded out of laziness/force of habit or sheer predjudice.
