Fedora Core 6 and other filesystems


Ok, im new to these forums and Linux so bare with me..

for the past like 2 weeks iv been googling everything to do with file systems.. i read how to install NTFS drivers and all that to be able to read my old HD from my windows machine so i can get my oold files off of it. I have a bunch of data on it and what not i wanna set an FTP up for just so when im at school and if i need sumthing its there.. but i cant seem to install these NTFS drivers right.. iv tried like a million times and 100 different ways to install these drivers.. and no go.. and i also wanna know is there any way to install FAT32 drivers incase its a FAT32 file system i had on there??

You should be able to install ntfs-3g with you (it's in the extras repository)

See http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...highlight=ntfs

I already installed the ntfs-3g drivers.. and then i used the command to check if there installed and there not.. right now im copying over the files on my windows desktop in my basement and them on gonna formatt the drive to BTFS again, and then copy the files back. im hoping if its a FAT32 drive then it will fix the problem, also im gonna reinstall drivers and then check if there working properly.

Whats the command again to see if i have the NTFS drivers installed? i cant seem to find the site i got it from..

I keep googling and finding results that people duel boot this system, and then wanna use the rest of the hard drive bit its NTFS and they cant... My problem is.. is i have a solo 20 gig Hd for Fedora Core 6 running.. and i put in my other HD from my broken desk top.. so i have 2 HDs in there.. and when i enable NTFS support and then try the

yum -y install ntfs-3gAfter

mkdir /mnt/c

ntfs-3g /dev/hda2 /mnt/c

i enter these, and on the first command i have trouble installing the ntfs-3g it says...

"Setting up install process"
"Setting up repositories"
"Reading repository metadata in from local files"
"parsing package install arguments"
"nothing to do"

i dont get it and i still cant seem to see my second hard drive..

Anyone give me a better answer, more then a link?

What do you mean by ntfs-3gAfter?

It's called ntfs-3g...

If you provide a non-existent name, then obviously yum won't find it ("nothing to do").

I know, the names of packages, sometimes you haven't got a clue what you're after. One easy solution: use Add/remove software (accessible from Applications on the menu bar); it will show a list of all available packages and you can install by simply making a selection and pressing install.

Do you have the extras repository set up - have a look in /etc/yum.repos.d

You should have a file

fedora-extras.repos

that looks like

Code:
[extras]
name=Fedora Extras $releasever - $basearch
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/$releasever/$basearch/
mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-extras-$releasever
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-extras
gpgcheck=1

[extras-debuginfo]
name=Fedora Extras $releasever - $basearch - Debug
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/$releasever/$basearch/debug/
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-extras
gpgcheck=1

[extras-source]
name=Fedora Extras $releasever - Source
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/$releasever/SRPMS/
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-extras
gpgcheck=1
Note that this is actually off a FC5 machine, but it should be the same or similar

So you're mounting the first hard drive (hda) - are you sure it's not the second one you're after?
