I have a nicely working MacPorts on Lion. When I run
sudo port install ntfs-3g
it does compile without errors. However, when I attach a NTFS-formatted external drive, it's read only. And there is no Preferences icon for NTFS-3G, like there was in my Snow Leopard install. Is the NTFS-3G driver active? How can I find out and fix this?
UPDATE: MacFUSE got installed along with NTFS-3G as a dependency and I did reboot after installing. The ntfs-3g command is available at the command line but I would really like all NTFS drives to be mounted using it automatically and with read-write support.
