Unable to mount


Hi All,

I have installed CentOS-6.4-i386 in my laptop. I have a external harddrive of 1TB named "Elements" connected via USB. Prior to CentOS-6.4 I had fedora-16 in my laptop and with fedora-16 I have not faced any problem to access the external harddrive. When I am trying to access external HDD in CentOS-6.4 it is giving error like
Unable to mount Elements
Error mounting: mount: unknown file system type 'ntfs'
Any suggestion
with regards,
masju

Add rpmforge repo to your repos list here.

Run :

yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g dkms dkms-fuse

If the rpmforge repo is disabled by default,

yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g dkms dkms-fuse

yum --enablerepo=rpmforge install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g dkms dkms-fuse

Actually, for a Centos/RHEL system, the EPEL repo is safer and has the ntfs-3g pkg.

PS: If you're going to add extra repos, do install/setup yum-priorities first http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities or it'll bork your system sooner or later.

Thanks to all. The problem has been solved by installing epel repo in the system. Now I am able to open the external harddrive which has ntfs file system. Thanks once again.
