NTFS on Red Hat

Link to this post 18 Dec 09

Ok, so I am not really a noob to Linux but I just cannot seem to get my 1.0TB external hard drive to mount in Red Hat. Can someone please help with this problem. I would like to back up my server to this external HD so I can put my backups in a safe place.

Thanks for the help in advance,

Do you have ntfs-3g installed? I use fedora and have no problems attaching external HD's. I don't have Red Hat installed and I'm wondering if ntfs-3g is installed by default.

Yeah, its installed. But, yet it still won't work. I had it working before but I had to rebuilt the server and could not remember how I did it before. Thanks for the idea though.

if it is installed then your automount application (most likely HAL) is not correctly configured to autodetect devices. You can manually mount it using "ntfs-3g {volume} {mount point}", read the ntfs-3g manual to see what options you have available with this command.

I think you should amount ntfs system,whatever remote host or local host.
