Few Noobie Questions Fedora3


Hey all, I have Fedora Core 3 installed and I have a few questions I need help with. My first one is how can I view my NTFS HDD that have my media on them. Secondly how can I make audegys work with F3, and finally how can I get flash viewer installed so I can view flash webpages. I use mozilla that came with the distro. I googled these repeatdly but I found nothing definate and I'd be very greatful for some help. Thanks in advance.

1. FC3 imho has ntfs support out of the box (if you installed it) so if thats not working, (as root: mount /dev/your_hd_ntfs_partition /mnt/some_mountpoint ) Try adding this to your /etc/fstab (ofcourse change the paths to suit your machine):

Code:
/dev/hda1        /mnt/ntfs            ntfs        ro,user,umask=0000,exec  0  0
2. audegys?

3. as allways, install flash from its vendor (doh).. I just hit google with flash, and voila, there it is, macromedia flash downloadpage for linux.. d:

my FC 3 didn't come with out-of-the box NTFS support but getting it working is extremly simple providing you follow these instructions

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/instructions.html

once you've established the NTFS module is loaded into the kernel then just edit /etc/fstab with a text editor using artanicus' post above.

audegys came up with zilch on google, do you mean audegy sound as in your soundcard? there's a soundcard detection utility in FC3 that might help you, i used that to sus out my shitty OEM dell soundblaster live card didn't have any drivers/linux support but my onboard realtek ac97 works fine

as for flash yeah just hit the site, it has a download and instructions on it
