Mounting NTFS.


About 2 months ago, I was able to mount my NTFS drive in Red Hat Linux 7.3
I do not recall how I did this. What I do recall is how to used the mount ultility.

mount -t NTFS /dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d

It provides the following error:

mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel

If I try "mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d" the error is no different. This concludes the drive is present there.

Obviously this is either a package or setting related problem, since I was able to do it before.

Does anyone know what package I require?

you have to download the package for ntfs support which is available on the sourceforge.net website...maybe you compiled a new kernel or something since the last time you did this, and you disabled the support by mistake or something...

Go to http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html and read the instructions there to find out what kernel u r using if u r not aware about that and other things u need to know to use the ntfs support package. Then go to the link provided and download the corresponding RedHat and kernel version rpm.

To see what filesystems your kernel currently supports -

cat /proc/filesystems
