Need Help in Mounting NTFS drive on RHEL 5.1
 
I need to mount NTFS drive on RHEL 5.1.
I tried NTFS-3g & FUSE as well, but still getting
FATAL: Module fuse not found.error. Please help.

Hello,

it seems that your kernel doesn't support NTFS.

If only the modules are not loaded, you may try
Code:

modprobe ntfs_fs
or
Code:

modprobe fuse_fs
if you need NTFS-write-support, you may use
Code:

modprobe ntfs_rw

What command did you use to mount ntfs first?

seeing as you are using the VERY old rhel 5.1 ( the current is 6.0 - or 5.6 for the 5 series )
i take it YOU DO have a EXTENDED LIFE contract with red hat ( one of the VERY expensive ones ) so that you can install the "backported" security updates and fixes
https://www.redhat.com/rhel/purchasing_guide.html


ask red hat that is why you are paying them a large bit of cash for support on that 5.1 server


if you DO NOT have a long extended life contract with red hat -- then DO NOT use it !!!
install the current CentOS 5.5

cent is the community "supported" version of RHEL

hi can you able to install the following rpms.
dkms*
dkms-fuse*
fuse-ntfs-3g*
ntfs-3g*
These four rpms solved my ntfs mount issue on RHEL 5.1

It's very easy to do , follow these steps.

the steps are also on the CentOS wiki AND on the red hat web site BUT you must have a PAID FOR license AND access to RHN to install the programs

http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/NTFS
BUT for the OLD 5.1 use the OLD and NOT THE 5.4 and up instructions
http://www.redhat.com/archives/rhelv.../msg00109.html

the instructions -- you MUST have a paid fore license and red hat account to use this link

Some people still use the old RH sadly, besides there better judgement. RHEL is widely used, as well as the spinoff Fedora.

the current RHEL 5.5 or 6.0
is a nice OS
or the free community version CentOS 5.5 are very stable

now as to WHY someone would NOT run the "yum upgrade" from 5.1 to 5.5 ?????

there "could" be some very odd hardware that is not compatible or some old software that for some reason no one wants to port to a up-to-date OS ????

Are there any specific reasons why one should not use it?
