Angry ntfs.o problem with Athlon 2400+


Guys,

I have RH9.0 running with Win XP and like to access the NTFS from Linux. But I failed. The system I have:

HP Pavillion with 512MB RAM, 80GB HDD with XP, 32GB additional HDD with Linux on it. And the CPU is AMD XP Athlon 2400+.

I got the rpm package from

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html

and the version I got was kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.athlon.rpm.
Then I did:

1. rpm -ivh kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.athlon.rpm and got the message:
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8 is already installed
file /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/fs/ntfs/ntfs.o from install of kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8 conflicts with file from package kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8

2. Then I ran /sbin/modprobe ntfs and get the error
[root@localhost NTFS]# /sbin/modprobe ntfs

I don't know what is wrong with it...
Can anybody help me on this?

Remove the current kernel-ntfs (usr rpm -e kernel-ntfs). It is the wrong version.

You will need to download the 2.4.20-9 --- version for RedHat 9 --- from the sourceforge site..

Hope your system has kernel version 2.4.20-9 installed -- check with the command

uname -r

The kernel version on your system should match the kernel-ntfs version that you want to install.

Thanks for the reply.

The kernel I have is 2.4.20-8.

[root@localhost data]# uname -r
2.4.20-8

One interesting thing is when the system boots, it says i686 kernel. However it is Athlon chip as I stated in the earlier message. What types of rpm package should I install for this? i686 or Athlon?

I would appreciate your help.

If you read the instructions you would have seen how to determine the vrsion to download:
rpm -q --queryformat "%{ARCH}\n" kernel

Sorry, my mistake... I thought (-8) pointed to RH8. sorry again.

Your system being Athlon based, you will require kernel-ntfs compiled for the athlon.

have you tried un-installing kernel-ntfs, download it fresh from sourceforge and nstall it.

Not sure whether you can try install an i686 module and its repercussions.

Hey, guys

Now it is wierd...
FInally I managed to install the ntfs, but is was a manual process as recommended here http://www.linuxexperience.com/tutorials/redhatntfs.php

Then it was successful, however wierd things happend.

As I mentioned above I have two partitions in the master HDD. I was able to mount the two partions one or two times but after no luck. I don't know why.

When I tried to mount, I got the error..

[root@localhost mnt]# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/Cdrive -t ntfs -r -o umask=0222
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
or too many mounted file systems

And I checked the system with
[root@localhost mnt]# dmesg | grep NTFS
NTFS driver v1.1.22 [Flags: R/O MODULE]

[root@localhost mnt]# cat /proc/filesystems
nodev rootfs
nodev bdev
nodev proc
nodev sockfs
nodev tmpfs
nodev shm
nodev pipefs
ext2
nodev ramfs
iso9660
nodev devpts
ext3
nodev usbdevfs
nodev usbfs
nodev autofs
udf
ntfs

Everything seems all right...
Can anybody help?

By the way

rpm -q --queryformat "%{ARCH}\n" kernel ==> athlon

But during boot process, it says using i686 kernel.... Don't know...
