CentOS 5.5 NTFS Drive Mount


Odd issue, I'm trying to mount a 1TB drive with NTFS on it, but it's saying it's an unknown file system. How do I mount this drive?

You need to install ntfsprogs or ntfs-3g

Regarding ntfsprogs, their instructions page doesn't exist, the site says. Which files do I need to download, any order they need to be installed in?

Maybe you could use yum? There's even a full tutorial to follow. Let us know if this works

I used ntfs-3g. VERY easy installation. configure, make, make install. Easy peasy.
