Enabling read/write NTFS support on RHEL 5.3


Hello Experts

Iíve Seagateís external hard drive (500 GB), which is working fine on Windows system but it was not being mounted on RHEL 5.3 as NTFS support was not enabled, so I installed kernel module for NTFS support and after that it was mounted successfully but in read only mode.

I searched for solution and on many forums it is recommended to install some .rpm packages like fuse, ntfs-3g etc. I spent whole day in search those packages but the problem is that the most of the packages are not available on any site which would be compatible with kernel of my OS OR being a newbie I may not be able to recognize correct required packages!

Please help me!

OS: Linux 5.3 x86_64, kernel: 2.6.18-128.el5.

Hi Qazianeel,
Try to run the following and also have a look at the following URl, that will help you to install ntfs-3g on your system.

Code:
yum install ntfs-3g
http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs-3g-download/
http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Syste...3g-15028.shtml
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat...search/ntfs-3g

Thanks for your response.

I installed ntfs-3G as you suggested but it still shows error while mounting:
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root

Then I tried #/sbin/modprobe fuse
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
I ran command: yum install kernel-module-fuse*, which also shows error:
Cannot add package kernel-module-fuse-2.6.18-128.el5-2.6.3-1.SL.ia64.rpm to transaction. Not a compatible architecture: ia64
Nothing to do
I tried finding fuse for my OS kernel but they show long lists, I can't recognize which one would be compatible.

Now?

In RHEL only these are required.

Code:
yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g

Actually the problem was something else the NTFS in 5.3 is broken. I got hint from another discussion:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-a-4175419920/

For more info about 5.3 kernel: http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/...24079&forum=37

I can't tell the exact solution being a newbie but I installed EplRepo as well as rpmforge and then installed kmod-fuse-2.7.4-3.el5.elrepo after that :

Code:
yum --enablerepo=rpmforge install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g
yum --enablerepo=elrepo install kmod-fuse
Now I can read/write on my portable hard disk

Regards

Aneel Ahmed
