Knoppix NTFS support
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 19, 2005
my brother has just installed knoppix since his XP crashed his hard disk (damn M$)
I know how to mount ntfs on Fedora FC4, but the problem is that he has Knoppix :S
I need to download a rpm for that not?
uname -r = 2.4.27
Help will be appreciated, like always
Is there any Linux distribution that has full NTFS support?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 5, 2011
I was using ubuntu 10.10 earlier and found that it does allow user to modify the file permissions for the files inside NTFS partition.
I have few files on NTFS partition and I cannot afford to move them, but I need to change the file permissions of those regularly.
Can anyone tell me, if there is any other linux distribution that has full support to NTFS file systems and will not create any such problem?
Thanks in advance.
Live with GUI file manager w/NTFS support and AV

I couldn't tell you how many linux review sites I've been to, again this might be a open ended question which I'm hoping closes my own gap and helps me figure out which distribution I should be carrying around...
I need a bootable live linux distribution which boots right to a GUI environment which instantly attaches to the local NTFS system to diagnose windows XP systems including an A/V..Would also be nice to have a GUI CD burning software too

Installing packages for NTFS support on CentOS 5.2
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 28, 2008
I am trying to download the packages that I need in order to read/write to NTFS formatted external drives.
I have found some valuable reference material at
Right now, I'm stuck at installing rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.*.rpm
The steps that I have taken are:
1) Install yum priorities
$sudo yum install yum-priorities
The message that I get is
Installed: yum-priorities.noarch 0:1.1.10-9.el5.centos
2) sudo vi /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf
Add to file: check_obsoletes=1
3) Install RPMforge for x86_64
4) Install GPG (whatever this is!)
sudo rpm --import http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt

How can I mount an NTFS disk in CentOS 5.4? I did 'yum list | grep -i ntfs', but that doesn't show any ntfs rpms. Does CentOS support NTFS filesystems?

Does DSL support any read/write to NTFS drives by default?
Live CD with full NTFS Support
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 27, 2005
Are there any Linux live CD's out there that have full NTFS read/write support? I had a Windows XP system crash a while back and wanted to copy some files from the system drive to the other drive before I overwrote the system drive with a backup I had made earlier. Unfortunately, the Windows Recovery Console wouldn't let me copy most files so I gave a Liux live CD a try to no avail. I had heard that NTFS write write support is no longer as experimental as it used to be and was wondering if any of the live CD's (especially nice ones with X11 and automount features) had starting supporting it yet.
[SOLVED] NTFS Support
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 27, 2011
I have Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 installed on my machine. I am unable to mount an External Hard (NTFS). I have tried several options which are as under:
After making a dir /media/windows
mount /dev/sda1 /media/windows/ -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222
`mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /media/windows
I get this error: mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
None of these options seems to be working. Here is dmesg of External drive
