kmod-nfts vs. kernel-module-ntfs




I recently updated my FC5 kernel to 2.6.17-1.2187 and decided to get the latest NTFS stuff to go with it.

I'm a bit confused because I see two different module names in use, seemingly all mixed together.

Here, <http://www.linux-ntfs.org/content/view/187>, I am offered a download of the file:

  kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5-2.1.27-0.rr.10.5.i686.rpm

But here, <http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/5/i386/>, I find

  kmod-ntfs-2.1.27-1.2.6.17_1.2187_FC5.i686.rpm

Finally, this page, <http://fedorasolved.org/post-install-solutions/ ntfs/>, provides slightly different information as it says to use "kmod-ntfs" on FC5 and "kernel-module-ntfs" on FC4.


* Are these two different beasts, and if so what is the different? Or are they the same thing with two names, and why?


I tried it both ways: manual download/install as suggested by www.linux-ntfs.org, and yum-install as suggested by pretty much everyone else. Both worked.

* Is one or the other method preferable / recommended?


Thanks
Andy
