NTFS rpms


hi I followed the instructions on this webpage: http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rp...s.html#install
so that I can access music files on my windows xp drive through linux everything went great until the last part which the website doesnt seem to take into consideration in its FAQ.

the following is the last step that the webpage tels me to do and I get the following error output:

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 1922 14596 101811906 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 14 1791 14281785 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 1792 1921 1044225 f Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5 1792 1921 1044193+ 82 Linux swap

Partition table entries are not in disk order
[root@rn146-16 kareem]# mkdir /mnt/windows
[root@rn146-16 kareem]# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r -o unmask=0222
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
or too many mounted file systems

what should I do about the error everything else went fine

thanx in advance,
Boomba

thanx that worked!..but now I can only access that windows dir as root user through the terminal.. is there a way I can give myself the permissions to look through it using KDE explorer?

yes, definitely (btw, the problem wasn't in specifying the filesystem type, you just had a bad option -o)

to view your files as normal user, use the option umask=000; i suggest adding this line to your /etc/fstab file (anywhere in that file is fine)

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs auto,user,ro,umask=000 0 0
