Accessing NTFS drives through Slackware


Is it possible? When in windows i have a USB HD with all my mp3/wma/divx/xvid's on. Is there a way for me to get to these & how do i go about it??

Also could someone run me through installing drivers? I need to install drivers for my Linksys WUSB54GS. All i know is i have to use Ndiswrapper

bootup slack without the usb device plugged in. after you log in and everythings loaded, plug in the usb device, then run 'dmesg | tail' and post the output here. it should list, if all is configured and detected properly, the device file that the new usb device is using. once we get that, we can help you with the mount command.

Remember, you can copy that text to a file on a floppy or a USB stick while you're in Slackare, and then retrieve that file after you rebooted into Windows XP - and post it here.

Well, amongst all the junk, it says
Code:
 Vendor: SAMSUNG Model: SP1604N Rev: TM10
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi disk sda at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
SCSI device sda: 312581809 512-byte hdwr sectors (160042 MB)
sda: sda1
so the disk is recognized as /dev/sda with one partition on it: /dev/sda1

You will probably see the same if you run
Code:
fdisk -l
and with this last command you'll also see what type the partition is (probably NTFS as you reported)
Try running
Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/hd
If you don't see errors, then your data will be available to you at /mnt/hd/*

If there are errors, you probably don't have the ntfs driver loaded. Run
Code:
modprobe ntfs
and try the mount command again.
If that did the trick, you should open /etc/rc.d/rc.modules in an editor, look for the line that goes
Code:
#/sbin/modprobe ntfs
and remove the starting '#' so that the line looks like
Code:
/sbin/modprobe ntfs
Now, when you boot the computer, the NTFS driver will be loaded automatically each time.

As for ndiswrapper, I have a reasonably recent Slackware package for 10.2 here: http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slac....31-i486-1.tgz
This is for your 2.4.31 kernel. The current ndiswrapper release is 1.16 but I didn't bother to build a package for that release yet. If you install that one, instead of building it yourself from source, you can start reading from here in the ndiswrapper Wiki: http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...Windows_driver and it should get you somewhere.

right as far as i can tell its not mounting. What i mean is when i go to look @ my storage devices there is only my /hdc1 & my fd0 & my dvd drive.

:S i'll try adding that command though & see if it will allow me to do anything after a reboot.
Thanks Alien Bob.

Also 2 Alien Bob, i'll give that version of ndiswrapper a go. Not really sure how to install it. But i'll give it a look.

yeah tedious46 i don't wanna delete/write to that drive, thats like my windoze backup drive, i wouldn't be 2 happy if i lost anything on that. hehehe.

Where are you looking? Did mount return with any errors?

Since it's a Slackware package, you can install it with installpkg:

# installpkg ndiswrapper-1.10_2.4.31-i486-1.tgz

from within the directory in which the file is located, you can use the full path if you're in a different directory.

Remember that most distributions (including Slackware) provides the man pages for most commands you can run in Linux.
If you need to know about some command use: man <command>
In this case it would be: man mount

To specify a filesystem, use -t switch, like: mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/hd

By the way, you've a network card that's not wireless, if you can use it temporarily it would be easier for you to fix wireless problems.
