Hi
Could someone give me an advice on where I could find the kernel module for ntfs?

2.6.32-71.el6.i686

Thanks.

rpmforge has fuse-ntfs-3g and ntfsprogs, plus a couple others. Fuse-ntfs-3g runs in userspace though, i'm not sure that a 'proper' kernel module exists.

It does exist on kernel level, but due to some license problems is not enable - at least not on RHEL distro.

CODE

[root@orionis ~]# cat /boot/config-2.6.32-131.12.1.el6.x86_64 | grep -i ntfs
# CONFIG_NTFS_FS is not set
[root@orionis ~]#


you can alway recompile kernel and enable it, but its faster to install as you suggested...

cheers,

So if I recompile the kernel with this flag set i'll have in-kernel ntfs support?

I didn't know about this; cheers!

I got the following error on compile -

CODE

fs/ntfs/super.c: In function 'ntfs_fill_super':
fs/ntfs/super.c:3050: error: too few arguments to function 'invalidate_inodes'
make[2]: *** [fs/ntfs/super.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [fs/ntfs] Error 2
make: *** [fs] Error 2
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.7RGTMB (%build)


Not a problem; I was only trying it out of curiosity while I am in kernel building mood. It would be nice to get it to work though.
