Question How to get NTFS modules to mount WIN partition ?


hey everybody,

Im running Fedora Core 6, as a dual boot with windows(NTFS) on 1st hd
and have a second harddrive with two NTFS partitions.

[root@localhost ~]# sfdisk -s
/dev/hda: 78150744
/dev/hdb: 293036184
total: 371186928 blocks


So I wrote: fdisk -l /dev/hdb

Disk /dev/hdb: 300.0 GB, 300069052416 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 36481 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 16573 133122591 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hdb2 16574 36480 159902977+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hdb5 16574 36480 159902946 7 HPFS/NTFS

and so i found out I had to check which filesystems are available on
my system. I write:

cat /proc/filesystems

nodev sysfs
nodev rootfs
nodev bdev
nodev proc
nodev cpuset
nodev binfmt_misc
nodev debugfs
nodev securityfs
nodev sockfs
nodev usbfs
nodev pipefs
nodev futexfs
nodev tmpfs
nodev inotifyfs
nodev eventpollfs
nodev devpts
ext2
nodev ramfs
iso9660
nodev mqueue
nodev selinuxfs
ext3
vfat
nodev rpc_pipefs
nodev autofs
msdos

I cant see any ntfs, where do I get it ? and is it the reason I cant mount
the NTFS partitions ?

I hope its a classic problem and easy to sovl ...

Thanks but its still not working well ...

So I found in the links you guys posted that I could get ntfs installed
by basicly writing:

yum install kmod-ntfs

First time it did install some 3 files but it had the same 3 last lines
saying:

Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: kmod-ntfs
Nothing to do


Here is my /etc/fstab dont know if its got right or not, but during boot
it faild mounting ntfs, after I did the yum install (?)

my fstab:
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb2 /mnt/win ntfs defaults ro,umask=555,nls=utf8,codepage=936 0 0

Im alittle worried if I did anything wrong or right ... anyone spotted a problem ? I did read your links but the first link was about Debian distro, not sure its the same ,.. and the other link didnt seem to get me any where .. what did i do wrong ... ?

Hey I got ntfs now !

Hey Nylex, its works now its all in your link ...thanks to both of u

To be more precise to pungvar:

go to livna.org (I tried post the link but have no permission)
its all in the link nylex came with ...

I downloaded the 4 files with ntfs close to the bottom of list.

run software install, do a reboot and try type cat /proc/filesystems again .. should show up (I hope for you

I love it when it makes sense again (phew)

I think writing to NTFS is still quite experimental and as such, you can do it at your own risk.
