- Also, write to is not the same as resize. Debian should be able to resize an ntfs partition using ntfsresize, whether it has ntfs writing support or not. In any case, latest debian stable doesn't have ntfs-3g, to get packages of it you need to use testing or unstable. So if you don't compile ntfs-3g or so on stable, you won't get ntfs writing support.

The ntfs-3g package should be part of the latest Debian versions. It can read and write to NTFS just fine.On 9/16/07, David Rumptz < rumptz_sh8kr@...> wrote:Wade:
Debian can read but cannot write on NTFS. It is cool but you need to set a FAT 32 partition for your "data"so you can use files on both systems. That is if you want to do it that way. Otherwise things on one system will be ignored by the other system.
