You are doing this as root, right? I'm not sure if Fedora 7 includes the ntfs-3g
driver, but you might get simply '-t ntfs
' to work.
I went to a Fedora 7 Tips and Tricks website and downloaded NTFS support using yum..
# yum -y install ntfs-3g-devel ntfs-config
I tried mounting it again and it failed but after I rebooted the computer things seem to be working ok.
Now it say New Volume detected with 299GB. Not the 320 but I guess thats ok.
I did a df -h and got this...
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda8 22G 715M 21G 4% /
/dev/sda2 246G 29G 205G 13% /home
/dev/sda1 99M 17M 77M 19% /boot
tmpfs 506M 0 506M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda6 1.9G 36M 1.8G 2% /tmp
/dev/sda5 3.8G 2.1G 1.6G 58% /var
/dev/sda3 15G 3.2G 11G 24% /usr
/dev/sdc1 299G 74M 299G 1% /mnt/usbdrive
/dev/sdd1 299G 74M 299G 1% /media/New Volume
I'm thinking I can delete the /mnt/usbdrive since /media is using it. Pardon all the partitions. Under the NTFS Configuration Tool its labeled as /dev/sdd1 /media/New Volume with a checkmark next to it.
Using the GUI Logical Volume Management its still labeled "Uninitialized Disk Entity /dev/sdd1." with an "Initialize Entity" button to click. I have butterflys about doing that.
Thanks for the help.
