Re: Windows partition



this is the error from that command

FATAL: Module ntfs not found.

I changed fstab and when I boot the original kernel, it auto loads "other" file systems and works great, I can see all my windows files.

Still won't work with the 8stacks kernel though

thanks,

norman

Thanks jeff.

My kernel is as follows;

2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks

not

2.6.5-1.358

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?
            
Let's try this instead. No guarantees it will work.
Log in as root and 'cd /lib/modules'. You should have
at least two directories: 2.6.5-1.358 & 2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks.
Do a 'mkdir -p 2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks/kernel/fs/ntfs/
Then 'cp 2.6.5-1.358/kernel/fs/ntfs/ntfs.ko \
2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks/kernel/fs/ntfs/' Everything between
single quotes should be types on one line. Next add
'/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks/kernel/fs/ntfs/ntfs.ko:'
to 2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks/modules.dep using your fav. editor
on a line all by itself.

          
I almost missed the \ in the following

cp 2.6.5-1.358/kernel/fs/ntfs/ntfs.ko \2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks/kernel/fs/ntfs

        
The line should be:
cp 2.6.5-1.358/kernel/fs/ntfs/ntfs.ko 2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks/kernel/fs/ntfs

      
Where will I be able to find the mounted directory for windows, or do I 
still have to mount it manually like I did witht he original kernel?

        
If it is in you /etc/fstab with an 'auto' in there, then it should
be mounted at boot else you would have to mount it manually.
      
thanks, I fixed the cp line

I used the following mount command when in the original kernel.

mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r

but it will not work here, also attached is my fstab file,  where would 
the auto go?
    
Your fstab will need a line like:

/dev/hda2 /mnt/windows  ntfs  auto,users,ro 0 0

Before mounting try '/sbin/modprobe ntfs' and see
whether that gives any errors.
