"An experimental, open source Linux kernel module that supports the
reading of exFAT files is currently under development. It cannot
become an official part of Linux due to the patent encumbered status of
the exFAT filesystem. A FUSE-based full-featured implementation is
currently in beta status."
The packages are in Russian Fedora Free for F15/F16/Rawhide, according
For Debian it's probalby in the main repository (but I'm unsure)
Though the software is licensed under GPLv3+.
