    Default Adding ntfs support RH9 / multiple kernels

    I want to see my xp disk from linux.

    I have dowloaded and installed the RPM but i get ...

    modprobe: Can't locate module ntfs

    even if I /sbin/depmod -a.

    The help says ...
    modprobe: Can't locate module ntfs (2)
    Occasionally rpm goes wrong and doesn't install the kernel module. If
    this happens, you may have to install the kernel module manually.

    * Download the correct kernel module - the .o file
    ....

    The RPM I used was kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-20.9.athlon.rpm

    My ntfs.o was located in the wrong directory and moving it does not
    work (kernel mismatch).
    It was not in
    /lib/modules/2.4.20-20.9bigmem/kernel/fs but in
    /lib/modules/2.4.20-20.9/kernel/fs.
    I presume that installing the RPM put this file there.
    Why did it not put it in the correct place?

    Originally I attempted, presumable successfully, to update the kernel
    from 2.4.20.20.8 for the purpose of seeing the ntfs disk.

    my lilo.conf contains:
    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-20.9bigmem
    label=linux
    append="hdd=ide-scsi root=LABEL=/"
    read-only
    initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.20-20.9bigmem.img

    Can I just delete entries to bigmem in the lilo.conf and then reboot
    and use 2.4.20.20.9 in lilo, reinstall the rpm?

    I have searched on bigmem on google and I only! have 1G of memory, so
    I presume I do not need 'bigmem' support.

    Umm. The NTFS kernel module RPM *must* match your running kernel number.
    If you're running kernel-2.4.20-20.9bigmem, then you'll need to
    recompile the NTFS module to match.
     

    Which kernel are you using? What does "uname -a" say, for example?
     

    That's correct. According to the kernel config files, the bigmem is for
    up to 64 Gig of RAM. The standard RedHat kernel can deal with at least 1
    Gig comfortably.

    How do I do that, where is the source?
    I thought this was done by installing the RPM.
     

    Linux localhost 2.4.20-20.9bigmem #1 SMP Mon Aug 18 11:18:32 EDT 2003
    i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

    So why is the 'bigmem' kernel being used?

    If there's a bigmem kernel module and that's what you installed, yes,
    there is. Let's check the sourceforge site. (Dig, dig, dig, dig.) Yup.

    Wait a minute: are you running an *Athlon* CPU with a bigmem kernel,
    which is what I'm guessing from what you've installed? Then you should
    replace that bigmem kernel with the Athlon kernel, to start with, and
    then make sure to work with the Athlon NTFS module.

    What does /proc/cpuinfo show about your CPU?

    Because you put it there? That's an update kernel, not a distribution
    kernel, so I assume you installed it one way or another.

    You'll need to make sure you have the appropriate kernel for your CPU
    and make sure lilo.conf is set to use it, and boot with that for the
    NTFS modules installed for it to work correctly.
