Lost My NTFS Support!


Hey guys can you make sense of this, I have been doing a lot of compiling lately mostly mplayer and firefox but in the process it seems that I have lost my NTFS support that I had at one point.

This is what I got:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Using Yum to check to make sure I have the NTFS RPM installed Below:

kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.14-1.1637_FC4.i68 2.1.24-0.rr.10.4 installed
Matched from:
kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.14-1.1637_FC4
NTFS Kernel Module
_______________________________________________________________________________

This RPM contains a binary Linux kernel module,
which provides safe, read-only, NTFS support.

Please read the NTFS FAQ if you want to know how to:

* Mount an NTFS partition
* Change the permissions/ownership of a mounted NTFS partition
* Automatically mount an NTFS partition

[root@xxx /]# mount -a
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

[root@xxx /]# uname -a
Linux Terdinator 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 #1 Wed Nov 9 18:19:37 EST 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@xxx /]#


-------------------------------------------------------------------
My NTFS rpm and my kernel version match up correctly, I have tried removing the RPM restarting, reinstalling the RPM and installing, mounting, and get the same error.

By the way I am a noob, is there a way to restart without physically restarting the PC, like doing just a software reset that would reload the kernel without actually restarting the entire computer?

Thanks for the help!

No, you can't reload the kernel. But reloading the kernel is only needed when compiling a new kernel.

But, you have to reload the ntfs module i think...

Code:
modprobe ntfs
is what you have to type in the terminal (as root off course), I'm not sure about the command's argument... but it should start with ntfs though... <TAB> will help you with that

Can you post the output of 'lsmod'?
