I've created some directory Junction in Windows XP

When I tried to rename those in Ubuntu 9.10, I get error message, kind of Operation not supported

Which Ubuntu package can handle NTFS Junction?

Thanks

The default NTFS handler package installed in Ubuntu 9.10 is 'ntfs-3g'. But for handling 'NTFS junction points' as 'Linux symbolic links' and manipulating them you'll need ntfs-3g-advanced package which is unfortunately not an stable release so it is not provided in Ubuntu package repository. But you can get the source and use it here:

There is NTFS-Config that can handle this. Take a look at the site here:

Hope this will help you!
