Post Problems with NTFS support in Fedora 5


I'm having trouble getting NTFS support working in Fedora 5. I followed the directions on FedoraFAQ to install the NTFS drivers but afterwards I am unable to mount my NTFS partitions.

The command: "mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r"

Results in the error msg: "mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'"

the ntfs-driver is an kernle module so the module has to be loaded for the driver to work. check if the driver is lodas with
[HTML]lsmod[/HTML] and if there is no driver do
[HTML]modprobe ntfs (as root of course)[/HTML] and try again

P.S.: When I was using Fedora lsmod and modprobe somehow didn't function properly or better said theshell somehow didn't know the command, if that happen simply do /sbin/lsmod and /sbin/modporbe

They need to be in your path, which i dont think sbin is for users in FC, su - gets you into a root environment with the needed path.

As for the OP you can try cat /proc/filesystem and see if NTFS is there too.

I always used to get mine from (and follow the instructions) here - http://www.linux-ntfs.org/
