    Question Accessing files and sofwares on windows from linux


    Hi, my desktop computer at the office has two partitions , windows and scientific Linux. I have some software packages such as SolidWorks and also some text files, etc on the windows partition and I was wondering if there's a way of accessing those and using the packages while using Linux?

    Many thanks!

    You can not execute installed Windows Packages in Linux but you can install those Packages in Linux using wine. wine is available in repositories of Scientific Linux. Install it through package manager, yum.

    For file sharing between Windows/Linux, you have to mount partitions of Windows OS in Linux.
    Post the output of fdisk -l command here.
    Code:
    su -c /sbin/fdisk -l
    df -h
    * Its small L in fdisk -l.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
