Post Compile/Install Instructions for 1.0AR.6 Release Source Code
I recently found the "NTFS-3G on OpenIndiana" web page here:

http://b.andre.pagesperso-orange.fr/ope ... fs-3g.html

Except for a few warning messages concerning linux, the fuse-kernel module and ntfs-3g_ntfsprogs packages worked great on the latest openindiana release! I opened up the source tarballs:

fuse-kernel-1.0AR.6.tgz
ntfs-3g_ntfsprogs-2012.1.15AR.6.tgz

to find a list of C code and header files. How would one go about compiling or installing such files in this format. I was expecting to find configure, makefiles, in addition to the C code. Are these source tarballs intended to be compiled and installed? If so, how?

Hi,

Which ones ?

This is a very good question. I found that OpenIndiana is not open to developers, I did not even find a public <stdio.h>, and I had to adapt the GNU header files.

Of course they are, and they really are the source files I used, but I needed to do a lot of hacking. Please direct this question to the OpenIndiana team (but they do not have the required manpower and I did not get help from them).

Within fuse-kernel-1.0AR.6.tgz you should have everything needed (configure, etc.) provided you have a building environment for OpenIndiana. For fuse-kernel-1.0AR.6.tgz I simply compiled on Linux, but you should be able to copy the C files into the original source package and use the original procedures. Ask details from the OpenIndiana team.

Now, why did you want to compile yourself ?

Regards

Jean-Pierre
