I am just starting to learn Linux and would like to start with Fedora. I am not quit an expert on all MS OS's (from DOS 5.0 to Vista RC2) but know a good bit, so I figure it's time to get into Linux.
I want to be able to run Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl etc.. I have Kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 installed and am trying to figure out how to add NTFS support. I've used Stanton-Finley.net to configure various Fedora setup's before, but can't ever seem to get an NTFS file system to work. I have 4+ TB's worth of hard drive's and would like to be able to run some on my linux box w/o converting the file system.
What is the easiest way to go about this? I have the Fedora 4 "Unleashed" bood that is ~1100 pages, and seems like a pretty complete guide.
I just need some direction to get me over the NTFS dilema. Any guidance or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
PS, Should I upgrade my kernel? Is it not wise to do this if I have this book I'm going to use as my "guide" or teacher?
I tried installing the NTFS kernel instructions and did this to add to my /etc/fstab file:
# gedit /etc/fstab
Added the following line:
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,defaults,umask=0222 0 0
I then saved the file making sure there was a line between the last line and then end the file
NTFS has a rather poor support in linux becouse it's proprietary and undocumented by M$.
Linux kernel supports reading of NTFS volumes, there are some drivers with write support, but they are raw and often corrupt filesystem.
If there no NTFS support enabled in your kernel you should recompile it.
NTFS mount being the core issue nowadays for linux users... is also a very stupid one too... as there are drivers available but again the case is either they not run properly or after sometime they get errors...
same is the case that happened to me...
now i have stopped using NTFS and now I love to prefer other FS
i know this is not an answer for your question...
still think around...
