First , you might have to get rpmforge YUM repo from here..
Then.. let’g get the support for ntfs for current running kernel with this :
yum install ntfs-3g -y
it shall sort out all the necessary dependencies for this to work..
then.. either test with external NTFS partional..
to mount just need
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb -t ntfs-3g
assuming the external drive is located at /dev/sdb1
and for permanent resolution to get it mounted after each boot ..
just need to add something *like* the following line into “/etc/fstab”
/dev/sda1 /media/C vfat rw,umask=0000,defaults 0 /dev/sda3 /media/D ntfs-3g rw,umask=0000,defaults 0 /dev/sda8 /media/E ntfs-3g rw,umask=0000,defaults 0
if want to read something on VMWware disk.. (*.vmdk)
with the partition type of NTFS (*sigh..*)
there is a script come with the VMware itself..
[root@nb-namran ~]# rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/bin/vmware-mount.pl VMwareWorkstation-6.0.1-55017
just need to append it to become something like this ..
/usr/bin/vmware-mount.pl /home/user/vmware/winxp/winxp.vmdk 1 /media/winxp -t ntfs-3g
then..yes.. shall be able to read/write it at /media/winxp[ad]
p/s : the above picture is because it had been turned off due to improper shutdown of WinXP on VMware.. .. 😎
