NTFS-3G 64-bit PrefPane For Snow Leopard
Update: A version of NTFS-3G with native 64-bit PrefPane support has been released. The instructions below have been left for archival purposes, but are no longer required.
I use NTFS-3G + MacFUSE to write to NTFS disks on occasion, but I hate restarting System Preferences just to run a 32-bit PrefPane when I want to view/change some settings. Behold the power of open source!
To compile a 64-bit System Preferences compatible version of this item simply
Right click and get info on the build target to add x86_64, turn on Objective-C garbage collection to “supported”1
Build the target.
…and you’re all set. You can download my copy, but I don’t recommend using it in 10.5 or 10.4. Of course, you don’t need a 64-bit PrefPane prior to 10.6 so why would you download it anyway?
If you set it to supported it should work in OS X 10.5 still ↩
