Akemi: I believe it is also very possible that after I did "modprobe
fuse" as root last night, that I did not reboot. I believe the reboot
is required, to get that running? This is critical, because I have
files for our web sites on the NTFS partition that I cannot write to a
CD-RW while using Windows.  :-)   The Windows SW gets into a loop and
the estimated time just keeps increasing and increasing. I can write
those files with K3b, without any problems.    :-) I am getting more
SELinux alerts now, after the upgrade to 5.3.    Lanny
