I have partitioned my system in two parts one with ext partition and other with ntfs partition. I have installed red hat linux in one and win xp in other.
Red Hat can mount the ntfs partition as read only. Can any one suggest me how to access this partition in r/w mode.
Yes, the Kernel does have NTFS-writing support BUT it is not yet stable; if you enable it you risk trashing your disk.
Use ntfs-3g, it's quite stable for writing to NTFS partitions.
On ubuntu there's a package called ntfs-config available which makes it very simple to configure. Check your package manager for which ones are available.
Surely install ntfs-3g, and optionally ntfs-config, if available.
Then you have to add/edit an entry reguarding your ntfs partition in /etc/fstab file. It should go something like this
[code]/dev/sda1 /mnt/ntfs ntfs-3g user,rw,umask=000 0 0
I have mounted fat32 partition. I can read and write on it using root login only.
What could be the possible problem????
I have tried putting other login in the same goroup as that of root and have allowed the premissions of read/write to the group also.
Let me know how to solve this issue.
I have Ubuntu Desktop Edition working.
captive project is actually supposed to be EXTREAMLY good. Catch, you have to have windows to legally use the software. But probably not an issue for a dual booter.
I had linux ubuntu for a while but decided to change back to windows so i backed up my files off ubuntu (pics, music etc.) on my mp3, when i put them on my windows xp, it wouldnt read it, they all turned up as 0kb files, but i could play the music on my mp3. Weird don't you think?
how do u upgrade a redhat distro if you dont have the right version cd? download the new version? what if the server apps break? how many % of breakage ?
