Postby gasolin » 2011/11/06 17:41:32

I wanted to use linux again, cento 6 has been the most stable relaible os i've used , more the ubuntu, mint, xp,vista and win 7 (mostly 64 bit).
Used cento 6 64 bit about 5 moth ago, didn't remember what i did, but i think i got my ntsf harddrive mounted. ntsf-3g dosn't work for mee
and using google didn't help me much.

Any idea to help me ?

Do you have the ntfs-3g package installed?

I also experienced problem with mounting an external NTFS partition (a usb HDD). I tried this solution 2-3 times, but unfortunately the packages was interrupt every time I entered the commands.

Then I tried to search throught the package manager (GUI) using the keyword "NTFS" and I found this package:
Linux NTFS userspace driver

I installed, and now the ntfs partition mounts perfect.

mount -t ntfs-3g ......

I had these extra sources enable:
CentOS-6 - Plus
RHEL6 - RPMforge.net - dag
RHEL6 - RPMforge.net - extras

Check it if you still experience problem.

Do be aware that the [rpmforge-extras] repo contains packages that replace core packages. It should be disabled by default, and selectively enabled only if you want to use its replacement packages.

If you need help with that please start your own fresh topic with an appropriate subject. Let's not hijack this thread.
