fuse_wait

fuse_wait is a tool distributed with NTFS-3G for Mac OS X. It executes a specified MacFUSE mount program with all of its arguments and displays an error message in case the mount operation fails. Because of a change in Mac OS X 10.7, fuse_wait (NTFS-3G 2010.10.2) displays a timeout error every time a NTFS volume is mounted.

This is an unofficial version of fuse_wait for Mac OS X 10.7, that fixes the issue. NTFS-3G and other filesystems using the tool should no longer display an error message when a volume is mounted successfully. Please note that this patch is only intended as a workaround until a new official version of NTFS-3G is released.

Installation

An installer package containing the patched version of fuse_wait can be obtained at https://github.com/bfleischer/fuse_wait/downloads. It replaces fuse_wait in /usr/local/bin. To revert to the original version, reinstall NTFS-3G.

Manual Installation

Clone this repository and run the following commands to build and install this version of fuse_wait on Mac OS X 10.7. Please note that Xcode has to be installed for this to work.

sudo mv /usr/local/bin/fuse_wait /usr/local/bin/fuse_wait.orig
./build.sh . /tmp /

To revert to the original fuse_wait program, run the following command in Terminal:

sudo mv -f /usr/local/bin/fuse_wait.orig /usr/local/bin/fuse_wait
