unable to mount ntfs partition


I'm unable to mount my ntfs partition on my fedora core 4 installation. I have install the ntfs kernel module and captive. Upon boot, it tells me unable to mount ntfs unknown filesystem.

From terminal:
[root@desktop ~]# modprobe ntfs
FATAL: Error inserting ntfs (/lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1831_FC4/kernel/fs/ntfs/ntfs.ko): Invalid module format

Anyone know why my system won't recognize ntfs? How can I get it to mount?

What kernel version are you running? Also, make sure that your current kernel has NTFS support compiled into it.

Mount ntfs

create folder in /mnt folder called whatever

example /mnt/ntfs

then,

mount /dev/hd# /mnt/ntfs
hd# replace with patition number hd4

You will not be able to write to just read.

As root edit your /etc/filesystems file and add the entry;

vfat
ntfs
hfs

Also check your /etc/fstab file, example;

/dev/hda2 /media/windowsxp auto exec,noauto,user,ro,umask=0 0 0

That is the reason you cannot mount it - the module failed to load - so there is no ntfs-support available. Recompile your kernel and modules. The module you try to load my be one from a previous kernel you had...?
