ntfs for linux distros


hi i thought i would start this thread so that all of the ntfs questions ans stuff could under here making it easier to find them.

anyhow my question is this:
how do you get ntfs support in fedora core 3?? (which has the latest kernel via up2date)
this is for hda 1 or 0 or whatever windows is on as it boots first (yes its a dual boot system).
also one question not related to ntfs how do you remove transgaming point2play???
Thankyou in advance.

ntfs support has to be enabled when configuring the kernel.

ntfs can be read by linux and there is write support but it is very limited. not sure if ntfs support was enabled by default when you upgraded, so the only way to know is to mount an ntfs partition and try to read it. if no luck, you'll have to re-roll your kernel with ntfs support features enabled. i don't know the fc upgrade process or i would tell ya how to check when you upgrade.

hope this helps....

If you need to write to an NTFS partition try this package http://www.jankratochvil.net/project/captive

Seems to work but I have yet to try it so use with caution.

As Heema suggested :

"how do you remove transgaming point2play???"

rpm -e point2play

If that doesn't work you may need to find the full rpm file name
that would have been used to install it

If you installed Cedega using the Transgaming rpms, then the "rpm -e <appname>" method should work. If you installed it from source (e.g., cvs tree), then go to the source directory for cedega and try a "make uninstall".

If all else fails, try "locate point2play", and then go to each of the directories listed and delete files/directories as necessary.
