Re: Udisks uses ntfs instead of ntfs-3g

I've patched ntfs-3g to symlink mount.ntfs to mount.ntfs-3g and it works
as expected.  If the new ntfs-3g is installed as a system package, that
is to say.

Indeed, libmount seems to only look in


and not in


Is this the behaviour we really want?  Maybe, considering libmount is fairly
low level.  Any insights?

To see that you can try the following command:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
> sudo LIBMOUNT_DEBUG=all mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
5132: libmount:     INIT: library debug mask: 0xffff
5132: libmount:      CXT: [0x2162690]: 
/run/current-system/profile/sbin/mount.ntfs ... not found
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

See for more

I'll submit a patch soon.
