[Bug 1041215] Re: no writing on ntfs kernel 3.6.0-030600rc2 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'


asgard2, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  no writing on ntfs kernel 3.6.0-030600rc2 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  I installed the new kernel image for testing on Ubuntu 12.04.
  System: DELL XPS 15 L502x notebook

  Linux version 3.6.0-030600rc2-generic (apw@gomeisa) (gcc version 4.6.3
  (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5) ) #201208161835 SMP Thu Aug 16 22:36:32
  UTC 2012

  Links are working but in Firefox are not recognized anymore. They are
  not marked as blue and there is no "mouse-hand-logo" when go over a
  link with the mouse.

  some Screenshots:

  If I use the old kernel 3.2.0-29-generic the problem is gone.

  All bookmarks are also gone, no entries under the adress bar and the bookmark library is empthy.

  Thunderbird Profile is also not working correkt anymore...
  I got a message like this: could not access data file

  I played with my virtual box to find the reason.
  My profiles are saved on a ntfs partition. If I use my ubuntu vm with the new kernel and the ff profile is on a linux partition. Everything is fine, but if I create an ntfs partition and use the profile from this partition, the bookmark panel is also not working. But the bookmark library is working.
  It looks like a ntfs problem.
  Maybe this information helps to fix the bug.
