I'm having trouble mounting NTFS and FAT32 in FC2? I've tried all the things mentioned in this thread: linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=191526 I've tried everything in there execpt re-compling the kernel. But then I thought I should be able to mount the FAT32 partition? but I can't so there must be something else wrong, Any ideas??
I have tried all that, and my drive assignments are correct. If I wanted a wizard to do it, i'd install Windows, but this is LINUX. lol Thanks for the suggestions, anything else i might try?? even just to see my FAT32 partition?
Originally posted by DJWS i'm using the 2.6.5x.x.x and i've added this into fstab
/dev/hda1 /mnt/WinXP ntfs user,auto,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda2 /mnt/Data vfat user,auto,umask=0 0 0
I could understand if i couldn't mount just the NTFS partition, but I'm also unable to mount the FAT32 partition?
If you haven't compiled fat32 support into the kernel you wont also be able to mount the fat32 partition. I also have 2.6.5 and, if I remember correctly, I had to add all the filesystems support I wanted.
I hope you are using the command mount to do all these tests and not rebooting everytime you change you fstab file :P
(Modify it to suit your kneadz)
And any standard user should be able to ls it.
Writing to an NTFS partition is stupid. Writing to an NTFS partition that windows has read/written/mounted/smelled/barfed on...is really STUPID! -Personal Experience...about 80GB worth
To see if your kernel understands vfat type: 'cat /proc/filesystems | grep "vfat"'
You should have a line that reads 'vfat', which means it does.
Even if there is no entry in /proc/filesystems, it just means that support is not compiled straight into the kernel [normally a good idea], in which case, try 'modprobe vfat', or 'modprobe ntfs', if all of the above fail, you will need to recompile the kernel.
