Mounting NTFS


Ok, I have my Windows Server 2003 HD hooked up as a secondary to Fedora Core 4... and it's there and fdisk -l says it's there everything workin fine but mount -t auto /dev/hdb1 /windows doesn't work, it says:
mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'

the same happens with mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /windows

any help?

Most likely you miss the module 'ntfs'. Try:
modprobe ntfs

It sounds like the ntfs module wasn't provided with your fedora core system. I'd try asking on the fedora core boards how to get the "ntfs" module installed (maybe it's a separate rpm or something).

Or, if you want (and know how), you can just compile your own kernel, and make sure to compile the ntfs module with it.

From http://www.fedorafaq.org/#ntfs:

Code:
Q: How do I read my NTFS (Windows NT/2000/XP/2003) drive in Fedora? (Updated 25 July 2005)
A: Well, now, that's an easy one! You just have to install the NTFS kernel module for your kernel:

   1. Make sure you are using my yum configuration.
   2. Open a terminal.
   3. Become root.
   4. Type:

      yum install kernel-module-ntfs-$(uname -r)

Now you can read your NTFS drives! Unfortunately, you cannot write to them, though.

NOTE: You will have to re-run the above steps every time you install a new kernel, after you reboot with the new kernel.
google is your friend
