When I had FC6 it did not have ntfs-3g in repositories, I had to install it from source from here
. In F7, or FC6 (forgot which one), installing ntfs-3g from repositories screwed up the OS because of a problem with SELinux, you either have to put SELinux in passive mode or install from source to avoid this. You'll need to create a mount point such as: /windows
, and follow instructions for installation on that web page.
To configure a dial-up modem in FC6 can be a little of a challenge, it is very important to know which modem you are using. One good first step would be to visit Linmodems
and do some reading, download and use a small tool called scanModem which will tell you which modem you have, whether it is supported or not, and where to get driver source code, full installation instructions and testing. The output of the scanModem script will produce many text files that you should read, one of which is called "ModemData.txt" which tells what modem you have, the state of the operating system and which one, and links to driver source code and Linmodem maintainers that can assist you if you run into a bind. Just don't expect them to respond instantly as they do this in their spare time, it can take a couple days to get assistance, but they are good.
You'll need to install kernel-devel, kernel-headers packages to compile modem modules for most modems.
