Question NTFS problems


I have Fedora Core 2 running great, but I had to install a different kernel to make my wireless card work, so after that I tried access my NTFS partition, in the same HD, cause a have WIn XP (dual boot). So, when I try to install the NTFS, that happens on the wrong kernel, so the new one dont get installed the NFTS RPM.

Does anyone have some suggestion, something like delete the old kernel, or some kind comand parameter to install the rpm in a specificaly kernel, or copy the files manually...

Thanks.

I had the same problem. Apparently Linux destroys Win XP and the only solution I was able to come up with was reinstall Windows. Everytime you want to go into it. Then when you are done, reinstall Linux.



If anyone has an actual solution to this problem, I'd really like to know.

No offense, but that's utter non-sense.

Linux doesn't destroy XP, people who can't follow
simple instructions or just don't know what they're
doing do ...

I've done a fair lot of Linux installs so far, and
NEVER has Linux done anything that I didn't
ask it to do during install.


Cheers,
Tink

None taken.

But I have followed all the directions to the T when it came to installing Linux. In fact, I've gotten about 40 different ways to install Linux and every person I talked to about it said there would be no problems, but there were.. I even had a guy who has been using Linux for years come over and try to install it in case it was something I did and it did the same exact thing to him as it did to me.

It boots into Linux but will not boot into Windows. No matter what I try. I totally agree, it is nonsense.

Now, don't get me wrong. The week I did use Linux I loved it and I still do. But the fact that still remains. I had more "issues" with Linux to rival Windows. I hate Windows. But untill I can get some good solid instructions Linux will stay off my machine.


So, the fact that I couldn't boot into Windows has absolutely nothing to do with me. It's either Windows itself, which I can see or something with my computer being a Hewlett-Packard, which I can also see. I don't know how many times I read the directions, then reread them and then reread them again on how to install Linux. After I while, I just got plain tired of reading them.

I can admit I'm not great at navigating Linux. And I really don't know that much about it. But I can say that I've had a lot of weird ass problems with it that no Linux useer has ever had before.

Yes, I am a but it doesn't help when every person I talk to tells you something different on install, and repair.

Nothing worked yet!

Look this, I have 2 kernels

Fedora Core 2 original kernel: 2.6.5-358
Kernel downloaded that make my wireless card work: 2.6.5-358-8kstacks

So, how can I UINSTALL the original kernel??

or How can I make the original kernel like inactive, or something that make it to be like not present?

All this is because I need to install the NTFS support in the NEW kernel, the 8kstacks one

Um, I could be way off, but when you boot, you can only boot with one kernel... if you want to 'get rid of the kernel' you could take it out of your grub list or something at boot up...

In terms of getting new support in an existing kernel... isnt that just re-compiling your kernel? (never done it, but search LQ for it)
