Mount USB Drive


Hello,

I have connected a USB drive to my Redhat linux server and I am unable to mount. Because it is an NTFS partition I am not able to mount. The version I am using is 2.6.18-128.el5 #1 SMP x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

Can someone help me to install fuse and lib packages?

I have no idea which version I should download?

Thanks
KJ

You need to install ntfs-3g in order to mount NTFS partitions.

Cheers,

Josh

Thanks

what error do you get when you try to mount this drive - could you possibly post a screenshot.

also if you could please run following command (as recommended by corp769]
Code:
rpm -qa | grep -i ntfs-3g

How are you trying to install it? By using either your package manager or rpm's off of the internet, you will want the latest version..................

I am trying to download install. But not sure which version I should download?

I used the below commands

mount -t ntfs /dev/sdc1 /mnt/USB

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /mnt/USB/


I get this error message : mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'

Thanks
KJ

I think you should have checked for package before installing it.
If it is already installed - you just might want to update it -

But even before updating it you should be able to mount if its already installed.

Sorry for hassle

Indeed you dont have required package.

Do you have Red Hat Subscription ? Are you paying Redhat for Support ?

If yes - you might want to check redhat support - if installing software from sources other then redhat is going to impact support in anyway

then you could always go to rpmfind.net and search for ntfs-3g and download and install it.

You should be able to mount it read only with stock kernel if that is all you need to do.

After installing the ntfs-3g packages I get the below error messages

[root@localhost ~]# mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /mnt/USB/
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0).
The file system wasn't safely closed on Windows. Fixing.
ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root
[root@localhost ~]# modprobe fuse
FATAL: Module fuse not found.

Can someone help me?
