Simple Steps To Mount NTFS In RHEL 5

First of all, I must say that I’m really upset with Red Hat for not providing fuse and ntfs-3g package. We’re not living in year 199x, are we?

This howto is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5 (RHEL 5) x86_64 edition and using 2.6.18-8.1.3.el5xen kernel. Below are the simple steps to mount NTFS (read/write capability) filesystem on RHEL 5.

1. Download fuse & ntfs-3g
fuse: get it from http://www.atrpms.net/dist/el5/fuse/
ntfs-3g: get it from http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/fuse-ntfs-3g/

2. Install fuse components
[root@meister ~]# rpm -ivh fuse-2.6.5-2_7.el5.x86_64.rpm \
> fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-8.1.3.el5xen-2.6.5-2_7.el5.x86_64.rpm \
> fuse-libs-2.6.5-2_7.el5.x86_64.rpm

3. Install fuse-ntfs-3g
[root@meister ~]# rpm -ivh fuse-ntfs-3g-1.417-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm

4. Mount
[root@meister ~]# mount.ntfs-3g /dev/sda9 /mnt/temp

It’s so simple, isn’t it?

Acknowledgements:
ATrpms - provide RPM package for fuse
Dag Wieers – provide RPM package for ntfs-3g

Caveat:

  • I’m using a fuse package that is based on KMDL, hence my module might be working-less if I’m migrating to new kernel. To prevent this, you might want to try DKMS-based fuse package by Dag Wieers.
  • This howto is based on 2.6.18-8.1.3.el5xen kernel. If you’re using different kernels, please use particular fuse package that is relevant to your kernel.

    HI GUYS… brand new open client adopter, just installed 2.3 on rhel

    now as from your guide I went to http://www.atrpms.net/dist/el5/fuse/ and got the three 2.7.4 rpms. I can’t install the third since I get
    “error: Failed dependencies:
    fuse-kmdl-2.7.4-8_10.el5 is needed by fuse-2.7.4-8_10.el5.i386

    But I can’t find this kmdl there…. how to overcome this?

    Hi Fabio,
    -Yups, it looks like fuse-kmdl for 2.7.4 is not available. So, you might want to ask ATrpms guys to include it for you.
    -I’ll be your colleague soon ;)

    My RHEL5 kernel version is “2.6.18-128.1.1.el5″; I have downloaded kernel from http://www.linux-ntfs.org and after installing it, my usb hdd is detecting (ntfs) and mouted. But it is mounted in read only mode.
    If try to re-mount it, it gives error message as follows:
    “NTFS-fs error (device sdb1): load_system_files(): $LogFile is not clean. Mounting read-only. Mount in Windows.”

    Just type in: yum install -y fuse ntfs-3g
    and it should install all the dependencies from the repository.
