Jotting down some Notes for enabling the LG N2B1 BluRay NAS to read/write NTFS partitioned USB drives using new firmware and the NTFS-3G package.
- Flash new N2B1 firmware to enable SSH server so one can get access to the command prompt on the device:
Tantalus’ N2B1 Firmware
Author used N2R1 2569t
- Enable SSH in the web console and login into the NAS device using a SSH Client.
- login as root . See FAQ.
- if virgin use of apt-get; initialize the repositories using:
- use apt-get to install gcc compiler.
apt-get install build-essential
- apt-get will fail to install libc6 library; use workaround here:
mv /sbin/init /sbin/init.mv
chmod 755 /sbin/init
dpkg –configure libc6
mv /sbin/init.mv /sbin/init
WARNING: If you execute the first command, you have to execute the last command, before you reboot your NAS-Box
- repeat apt-get install build-essential
- gcc -v to verify gcc compiler has been installed and is working.
- download NTFS-3G from Tuxera. Author used: ntfs-3g-2010.10.2
- untar: tar xvf ntfs-3g-2010.10.2.gz
- cd ntfs-3g-2010.10.2
- ./configure –prefix=/usr/lib to install to the correct directory. on Author’s system; the system autoconfigured to /usr/local which caused problems during make install.
- make install as root. or sudo make install
- you should then be able to to mount NTFS partitions using:
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ntfs
Many Thanks to forum.NAS-Portal.org for hosting the information necessary to piece this together.
