Unable to access NTFS Partition

Post by Arwa » 2015/03/23 20:43:53

Hi All,

I am new to this Forum and Centos.

I recently installed CentOS as Dual boot along with Windows 7
After a series of tries i was able to fix the boot issues, Now i am not able to access my Windows drive from CentOS as these drives are NTFS drives.

I tried the following command after reading few articles,
# yum -y install ntfs-3g

Nothing happens when i enter this command as a root user.
Please help !!

The ntfs packages are in a third party yum repository called EPEL. To gain access to the packages in EPEL you first have to yum install epel-release
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
