Posted by aygun on Mar. 24 2005,07:51Hello everyone.Can anybody make an Captive.dsl to make NTFS partitions writeable ?
With respect ,
PS : I know about MS copyrights .Just make the Captive.dsl without ntfs.sys & ntoskrnl.exe .
Posted by penguin asylum on Mar. 30 2005,23:24I'm working on one for you, but it seems that installing captive (the normal way, not the .dsl way) has overwritten everything in its path...
Posted by penguin asylum on Mar. 31 2005,01:03OK, I've made it...
it's located at < http://badgerville.org/mydsl/captive.dsl >
and yes, you will need the microsoft system files...
otherwise you get an error message.
Posted by aygun on Mar. 31 2005,04:23I cant find the captive.dsl on your server
Please , tell me when is ready to download.
With respect ,
PS: Thank you very much for module.
Posted by penguin asylum on Mar. 31 2005,13:35Aah... :P
sorry about that, apparently it didn't actually upload, while it looked like it did...
it's uploading now.
a few things about it:
You have to put ntfs.sys at /var/lib/captive/ntfs.sys
(I presume that that file is not free...)
also, in /home/dsl there is a file called uninstall-captive
if you run that as root, it will, you guessed it, uninstall captive.
to mount an NTFS partition read-write, type mount -t captive-ntfs /dev/hdfoo /mnt/hdfoo
where hdfoo is your partition :P
Posted by aygun on April 01 2005,04:19Thank you !!!
I`ll install the captive.dsl today.
With respect ,
Posted by penguin asylum on April 02 2005,16:00Tell me if there are any problems. I don't have ntfs.sys, so I can't fully test it, but it seemed to work
Posted by aygun on April 04 2005,05:35ok , I`ll tell you.
With respect ,
Posted by aygun on April 06 2005,06:58i`ve tested the Captive module.
It`s working very well.
Thank you very much.
With respect ,
Posted by Lodovik on April 08 2005,00:08Good work!
I, too am interested in a Captive .dsl but I can't download it from the link above...
Posted by SaidinUnleashed on April 08 2005,00:25Has this been submitted to ke4nt yet?
Posted by penguin asylum on April 08 2005,01:58No, I didn't know how to...
do I just email it to him or something? Also, do I have to include the md5 file and the description file?
Posted by penguin asylum on April 08 2005,02:01Also, it would seem that my annoying host has deleted it :P
I'll try to get it up again or just send it to ke4nt
Update: It's now up again at < http://badgerville.org/noah/captive.dsl >
Posted by Uncle Warthog on April 08 2005,20:41I've downloaded the captive.dsl but can't seem to get it running. I'm running DSL 1.0 RC2 from a usb stick. It seems that I have no lufs.o module and none of the pre-compiled modules from captive seem to work. Where does the lufs.o module on your working setup come from?
Posted by penguin asylum on April 11 2005,23:59Could you tell me the exact error message?
Posted by SaidinUnleashed on April 12 2005,03:17mail it to
Posted by Uncle Warthog on April 14 2005,20:53Sure, here's what I'm seeing when trying the command mount -t captive-ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
Captive NTFS v1.1.5. Check a new version at: < http://www.jankratochvil.net/ >
Preparing LUFS kernel module... Run /usr/share/lufs/prepmod if problems occur.
lufs modules not loaded: Try running /usr/share/lufs/prepmod to see more. at /usr/bin/captive-lufsd line 180
I already have ntfs.sys and ntoskrnl.exe in /var/lib/captive. If I run the /usr/share/lufs/prepmod script, it runs through all of the pre-compiled lufs.o modules it has available then indicates that it failed to prepare a lufs.o module for Linux kernel 2.4.26 and that no Linux kernel sources were found (not a surprise as I haven't installed any).
What I find is that, after installing captive.dsl, that the /var/lib/captive and /var/lib/lufs directories are created but nothing is placed into /var/lib/lufs. The kernel module /lib/modules/2.4.26.kernel/fs/lufs/lufs.o is a link to /KNOPPIX/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/fs/lufs/lufs.o which is a link to /var/lib/lufs/lufs.o, both before and after installing captive.dsl.
Hopefully this helps. I've just tested with DSL 1.0 final and had the same issue. I think all that needs to be done is to grab a copy of the right lufs.o from a Knoppix CD and put it into /var/lib/lufs (I'll see if I can make this work) or else build one from source. Does the captive.dsl contain a lufs.o module and, if not, where did the one you're running with come from?
Posted by cbagger01 on April 14 2005,22:21Make sure that you grab your lufs.o file from the exact knoppix cd that DSL kernel is originally from.
It is version:
knoppix 3.4 5-17-2004
Posted by penguin asylum on April 18 2005,02:22
This seems to be a slight problem with captive and dsl...
For now, just get kernelsource.dsl and then try it...
at some point someone should include a lufs.o in the extension, but right now I don't have time, and I probably won't for about a week.
Also, ntfs.sys and ntoskrnl.exe are copyrighted, right?

Posted by Bob489 on June 21 2005,17:51I tried to download captive.dsl from the link provided in a previous post. The link appears to be dead.
Does anyone know where I can grab this extension?
Posted by bernhard.jantscher on July 11 2005,11:05hi, i would also like to download captive.dsl...
could somebody post a link to it please? or put it back online?
Posted by mabiuso on Aug. 21 2005,20:49Any chances to get the file?
Posted by Strangerli on Sep. 03 2005,11:06Still dead. :-(
Posted by mabiuso on Sep. 27 2005,11:51Up.
We need NTFS-RW!
Posted by Patrick on Sep. 27 2005,14:13I need it 2
Posted by neilb on Oct. 03 2005,16:37So do I
Posted by SaidinUnleashed on Oct. 03 2005,17:12I'm going to close this, for several reasons.
1. the extension was never submitted. I would have liked to see it.
2. the link to where the creator posted it is dead, and has been for a while.
3. this thread has had no real response for several months, so posting to it just bumps it to the front page and brings attention to it, and making people beg for something that isn't there anymore.
4. I'm a mean, evil bastard.
If someone comes up with a new extension for captive NTFS, or if the creator coms back and reposts it, open a new topic.
DIE THREAD DIE!
