Re: Windows partition

Thanks jeff.

My kernel is as follows;




as I had to chnage it to allow for my wireless adapter.

When I load the 2.6.5-1.358 kernel at boot it works fine, when I use the top one it does not.

Does this make sense?


You say it does not work and it does work, but are not specific about the errors seen, conditions, or what is being tested.

I would assume you are referring to the functionality of the module or the ability to insert it, but without more information I can't answer that it does or does not make sense. I do not use anything right now that requires the 8k stacks nor do I presently need access to ntfs on my linux boxes so have not tested it. I was only commenting that the ntfs module can eliminate the need for recompiling.

I do know that the modules usually have to match the kernel so you may need a module compiled for your kernel in order to use ntfs with it.

I am a windows guy and trying to make a go of this. Had our Sun JDS working for a while but have found fedora mush nicer and it recognized almost all of my hardware

How can I see the files on my windows partition?

Create a mount point for the partition. If it is one
of the FAT types, mount it using vfat. If it is ntfs,
head over to http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/ and
get the ntfs module. Install it and mount the with
ntfs. If you want to make this more permanent, add
an entry to /etc/fstab.


thanks for the support. I got the RPM but here is my issue.

To get my Linuxant wireless driver to work I had to install an rpm that created 8kstacks and that is now the kernel. I have an option when I boot to load either the original kernel or the 8kstack kernel. If I load the original, I can see the windows file system, when I load the other I cannot as it tells me that
mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel

any suggestions?

Each kernel has to be compiled with the ntfs module. From what you have written, your 8k stack kernel does not have the ntfs module compiled. You will need to recompile the kernel module for that.


Hey N.Emile

There is an ntfs module. Compiling is not required. The archives have had a lot of discussion recently and a quick search gives
