    mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel


    I'm a newbie!!!
    I have installed Redhat 9 on my Amilo D cy23 notebook. I'm running Win XP on hda1 partition and Redhat 9 on hda2.
    My problem is that whenever I try to mount my XP partition using the command :
    "mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/ntfs" it says that: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel
    I have tried some of the sugestions here on that forum, but no luck.
    Does that mean that I have to recompile the kernel or I'm missing something?
    Or there is another way to turn on the ntfs support.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi!

    Try to modprobe ntfs as root. If it fails, you can just compile ntfs support as a module in the kernel, and just modprobe the ntfs module again.

    Good luck

    A simpler solution would probably be to download the rmp from http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/ so you don't have to mess around with any kernel configuration and such.
