Unhappy Obtaining error installing ntfs-g on Centos 6.3


I need to mount an ntfs filesytem from a second drive (is a standalone Windows Vista drive)

have done the following successfully:
# wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...6-8.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
also installed remi
edited remi.repo to enable remi


then attempt to:
# yum install ntfs-3g
and get:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Error: File contains no section headers.
file: file://///etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo, line: 1
'[remi]\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00 \x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00 \x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\n'

Not sure where I have goofed up - but your assistance is appreciated.

ntfs-3g is in the epel repo. Remove the remi stuff.
Incidentally, if you're adding extra repos like epel, make sure you install & setup the yum-priorities plugin first, or it'll end in tears ..

see the centos wiki for ntfs-3g
http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/NTFS
then the repo page
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRes...t=Repositories
then the "yum-priorities" page
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities
