[solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

I have been having a very annoying issue with ntfs-3g for the past few months.  Every once in a while, something happens to the ntfs-3g process that is supposed to mount my data partition.  I'm not really sure what happens as I don't know where any error messages appear.  Bottom line is that the ntfs-3g process disappears and leaves the mountpoint/device completely borked to the point that all I can do is reboot my computer.  This is not a linux solution, this is a windows solution.  There has to be a way to force this thing to remount, but I have not found a way yet that does not involve rebooting.  After rebooting, it comes back up perfectly like nothing happened.  Anyway, here is some relevant information about my setup.

Please note that the operating system does not boot off of this drive.  Numerous symlinks exist to it, though, mainly from my home directory but also from a couple of other places (pacman package cache, for example).

fstab:

tmpfs		/tmp	tmpfs	nodev,nosuid	0	0
UUID=1e46567d-0cd5-450b-a159-12edead65477 swap swap defaults 0 0

UUID=9E04EACE04EAA90B /mnt/win7 ntfs-3g defaults,nls=utf8 0 0

failure mode of mount point:

# ls /mnt/data
ls: cannot access /mnt/data: Transport endpoint is not connected

fuser:

(this is probably related to why it doesn't want to unmount)

If anyone has any suggestions of places I could look for error messages, please let me know.  I have tried unmounting it and re-mounting it to no avail: umount doesn't work, umount -f doesn't work, umount -l unmounts it, but does not fix the transport endpoint error after a remount.

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

It happens here, too. I did not try umount with force yet since I found the option only after the last crash.
My message is in german, translated something like "socket is not connected". The next time, I'll try with LC_ALL=C and see if it will be the same as yours.
The drivercrash happens mostly when using a Virtualbox VM stored on the ntfs partition. So it seems that larger read/write transactions are not handled that well.

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

And it just dropped out again today.  This is an incredibly annoying issue.  I wonder if it might be related to standby mode as it only seems to manifest itself after a few standby and resume cycles.

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

I'm having the same issue. and have been for a while. I just downgraded my NTFS-3g to 2012.1.15-1 and I believe that cleared it up last time. I keep forgetting about it and running a full update and allowing it to update. Going to exclude the package for now. As you know, it's a very intermittent issue so I could be incorrect about what fixed it previously or if this "fix" is actually a feasible temporary solution.

For comparison purposes:

I also have gvfs but I've tried uninstalling that completely and the error still occured

Could this maybe be a bug in ntfs-3g itself?

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

This bug almost broke my computer by occuring during an update as I put the pacman cache on the data partition.  Needless to say, I cleared out the cache and moved it back over, but that sort of issue is unacceptable.  I'm pretty sure this is a bug in ntfs-3g itself, unfortunately.  I never had any problems before Arch switched from the previous NTFS driver that used a kernel module instead of FUSE to mount the partition.  Come to think of it, it might be a FUSE issue.  Unfortunately, I do not know how to start debugging this problem.

Hmm, looks like there is a bug report against ntfs-3g for this issue: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/30568 .

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

Currently I am not able to reproduce the issue anymore. Maybe it really is the combination of gvfs and ntfs-3g. Last month I finally removed gvfs and the last applications relying on it.

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

FYI: 2.9.2 resolves ф deadlock in userspace library. I think it worth updating package http://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/i686/fuse/ to 2.9.2

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

I haven't seen this specific problem. However, I was having problems with ntfs-3g mounting RO except for root a few weeks back, which I narrowed down to a fuse bug. A patch was prepared for fuse, which I now use for all kernel builds. I don't know if the patch has hit the actual git release of the kernel yet.

Since i don't have the problem, I wonder if the problem I had was related somehow, and the patch prevented this problem occuring for me?

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

It also affects encfs mounts.
2.9.2 is out for a while now, this update is definitely necessary.

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

I manually updated to fuse 2.9.2 and this issue seems to be resolved.  Hopefully the fuse package in extra will be updated soon.

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

Arch package still not updated. It's a very annoying bug, I think 2.9.2 should be considered as a critical update. Can somebody please update fuse?
How did you update manually?

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

* save all three files here to an empty directory
https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit … kages/fuse
* change version
* makepkg -g
* replace hashes
* makepkg -si

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

> Can somebody please update fuse?
It seems that the package owner (Ronald) is quite busy and ignores this package. It makes sense to contact the maillist (arch-general?) and ask if the package can be reassigned to someone else.

Ideally if contributors could send trivial package updates to Arch developers (like in Homebrew https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/pulls).

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

Same issue here!
If I mount my NTFS USB-stick with ntfs-3g driver I get error:

blablabla...Transport endpoint is not connected

Mounting with the system-default ntfs is OK, unfortunately it only allows reading from drive sad(

How can you call NTFS-3G "Stable read and write NTFS driver" after that???


P.S.: I notice that this happens only after ordinary user accesses it.

Same issue here when trying to mount an external USB drive via udev rule!
"Transport endpoint not connected..."
Worked perfectly before migrating to systemd and before updating packages.

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

Try not using a udev rule to mount things, that's not what they're for. Use soemthing like udisks instead.

Re: [solved] ntfs-3g: transport endpoint not connected

"Transport endpoint not connected" error means that for some reason the daemon process crashes. Could you please check journal if there is anything related to ntfs, fuse maybe something suspicious with udev/systemd?

# journalctl -a -b


Some people above say that fuse-2.9.2 fixed the issue for them. But there are other people who report (possibly another) issue with the same error message. Are there detailed step-by-step reproduce instructions? I've never used ntfs-3g before but I have experience with fuse, so I can try to look at the problem. Feel free to report bug and assign it to me.

So I install ntfs-3g package, format a 8G flash pen drive with ntfs. What is the next step to repro your issue?

Seems that udev rule functionality has broken with systemd.
If I mount my ntfs-3g partition manually it works ok, if I use an udev rule (the provided one by ArchWiki: automount external usb drive) the partition mounts but in a few seconds it deads reporting the "Transport endpoint not connected" error.
By now I solved using ldm, but I had to modify the source code to do was I needed.
I think that udev rules were more flexible than this...

EDIT: please note that I use the same command to mount manually and in udev rule.

It may be that udev issues the mount command while the device is not ready yet. Or it kills processes if they run too long when they are not launched with double-fork.

what? these are still in the wiki? where? About time there are removed...

The actual problem is that your are not supposed to use udev rules to do things as complex as automounting devices. In case of ntfs-3g, the mount process has to be running the whole time while the device is mounted. udev however will kill this process after some time and that's why you get this error message.

Use udisks with an automount wrapper if necessary, it will just work.
