NTFS mounting support?

I know that NTFS is not supported in balena. I installed NTFS-3G but was still met with missing /lib/modules.

My question is it possible to add these modules manually? I have done this with other kernel modules but wanted to check here before making a big effort.


Hey, welcome back to the forums!

You can definitely compile and load the required modules yourself if they are required for your project. You said you’ve done it before but there is an example here if you need it: GitHub - balena-os/kernel-module-build: Example project for building an OOT kernel module in balena

If your Dockerfile builds the module, then you can run the container as privileged with the io.balena.featrues.kernel-modules label to have /lib/modules mounted in your container.

Sweet, I’ll dig in here soon and post progress.
