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

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