How Fedora Core 4 Support NTFS?


I have a fedora core 4 installed in my computer,the kernel is Linux 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4, I want it that my NTFS files in my XP be detected or read by my linux.

Im done doing

mkdir /mnt/windows
mount ntfs -t /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

it will prompt,
mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'

what would i do?

please help... =)

google fedora ntfs, you will find a link to install related rpms. The other solution would be to compile a kernel with ntfs support built-in

I found this website when looking for help with web server configuration. It has a section on NTFS support. I hope it helps.

No mistakes, ok i hope you have REAd the instructions and loaded the correct PRM, and you ran the which.sh file... If not, do this first. you also have to follow the command on the page to confirm that hda1 is your XP Partition..

once you have done that do the following as root

cd /media
mkdir winxp

Now you have a directory /media/winxp

now type in: (I use gedit as its simple and easy feel free to use your preferred text editor)

gedit /etc/fstab

as the last line add the following

/dev/hda1 /media/winxp ntfs ro,defaults,umask=0222 0 0

then at the end of this line press enter so there is a new empty line at the end of the file...

now save and exit from gedit (or your preferred editor)

now back at the SU command prompt type in

mount /media/winxp

If all goes well you should see no messages

now type in:

ls -l /media/winxp

you should see your windows folder...

REMEMBER this is READ ONLY you CANNOT Copy files from linux to your XP Partition this way only from XP to linux
