Well, if the RMs ack this two line change, I, as co-maintainer of hal, would be willing to prepare a updated package for etch.
To summarize the issue:The hal version in etch doesn't allow to mount ntfs volumes with the uid/gid option set. KDE, by default, passes the uid option to hal, so mounting ntfs volumes from within KDE fails.
The fix is a rather low impact, two line, fix.

Perhaps this is a description of the patch and why i added it? It was added to fix #418176 in etch. It is copied as is from the 0.5.11-1 version. Is anything else needed? I'm CC'ing the package's maintainer.

I'm talking about doing what I've described in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=418176#67 I've tested it and it works. I see no problems.it would help if you could attach the concrete patch (w/ changelog entry etc.). Kind regards, Philipp Kern
