How do I BANISH NTFS FOREVER from raspbmc?
I don't know what's the problem between my raspbmc and my external hdd. All I know is that the ntfs partition of the external hdd keeps "removing" and "connecting succesfully" in an infinite loop. The ext4 partition (the one that matters) works just fine. The problem is that if this loop is not interrupted, the pi eventually crashes and I have to reset (unplug and replug the cord). Even if I
sudo umount /media/ntfsshit through ssh, raspbmc remounts it again! Against my will!
I tried removing the ntfs-3g package (didn't work). Then I added a blacklist.conf file to
/etc/modprobed.d and it didn't work. It was like this:
blacklist ntfs # the above didn't solve the problem, so I added: install ntfs /bin/false # but didn't work either
I'm tearing my hair off of my head, and I keep looking at my hammer, then to the pi, then to my hammer, and the idea of smashing it seems more and more attractive.
Please, save a stranger's sanity. Thanks a bunch!
The pi is connected to a wall outlet through a cellphone charger and the two usb ports are used as follows:
lower port: 7-ports powered usb hub (with a wireless mouse and the hdd)
upper: DWA-131 wireless dongle
