xmms doesn't see mp3s in ntfs folder


I installed kernel-ntfs####
xmms-mp3
and created the mount point. I can see the files in /mnt/XP/music but neither xmms, nor rythmbox able to see even the folder music in /mnt/XP.
I have also tried the change permissions for the XP dir but it says read only file system.
I'm open to ideas...

Hi,

What does it do when you run xmms with command line, for example:
xmms /mnt/XP/music/my_song.mp3

Hi

When you mount the XP partition, try to use the following parameters:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win vfat user,exec,dev,suid,rw,umask=000,auto 0 0

It might help - this line gives me full RW access to all of my Win98 partition.

It will fail as WinXP uses NTFS partitions... Moreover with Linux NTFS support is read only

no such thing as stupid question

There is no such a thing as stupid question in journey of learning godzilla_roar, at lease in my book.
Most stupid question is the one you have never asked.

I should have been more specific. Here are the packages I installed:

Processor = Amd athlon 1900
Platform = Fedora Core 2
Latest stable kernel (can't remember the version right now and I'm not home, but it's the one after 2.6.5-1.358)
xmms-mp3 package for xmms
gstreamer-plugins-mp3 package for rhythmbox
ntfs rpm 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 for i686 (should i have installed 586 version?)
should i install ntfs kernel module as well?

problem half solved

For those who are interested:
Well, it was a simple detail but took one day to figure it out.
Oliv' was right. This command works:
xmms /mnt/kskXP/music/somesong.mp3
but only when i run it as root.
So there is access to this folder. now i have a new question, since i am not able to change the permission on this folder from within fedora, how can i run xmms with my userid ?

Mount the partition with a umask of 000.

eg: mount -o umask=000 /dev/hda2 /mnt/windows

** Change the mount device and mount points to suit.

This is all I had to do to play my mp3's which where on my XP parition. If this dosen't work, then you can try your work around of running xmms as root. "man sudo"
