How To Enable NTFS Support in CentOS 6, red5 hosting.#Red5 #hosting

Posted on by 0 comment

In this how to I will describe how to enable NTFS support in CentOS 6.3. By default CentOS 6.x doesnt comes with NTFS support to mount NTFS partition either on hard disk or usb drives. Fedora provies EPEL repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) is a volunteer-based community effort from the Fedora project to create a repository of high-quality add-on packages that complement the Fedora-based Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and its compatible spinoffs, such as CentOS and Scientific Linux. NTFS drivers ntfs-3g is available through EPEL repository.

Enable EPEL repository using following command.

The above command will install ntfs-3g package which bring NTFS support to your CentOS 6.3 installation. Just plug in your ntfs usb drives or use mount command to enable ntfs hard drive partitions.

Thanks a lot my friend. That solved my issues while I had wasted more than an hour before I saw your posting.

Thank you. I just needed to run the Install NTFS Drivers:

# yum -y install ntfs-3g

The Seagate usb-drive was mounted as

/dev/sdd1 on /media/Seagate Backup Plus Drive type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_permissions)

Note: epel-release-6-8.noarch was already installed on RHEL 6.3.

Thanks a lot. Been worried about it for so long. Really helped me.

I got error in centod 6.5

Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: epel. Please verify its path and try again

Thank you it s work with my CentOS 6.5

now its working

Please give me advice. I want to enable USB HDD in my CentOS 6.4 Server So, I try to below commands. in same thing it is working another server.

package epel-release-6-8.noarch is already installed

Then i type below command

#yum -y install ntfs-3g

No package ntfs-3g available.

Error: Nothing to do

@siva: check /etc/yum.repos.d/epel*.repo for line enabled=1, the value should be 1. If its enabled then try to do

yum list | grep -i ntfs

If it doesnt show, then there might be some issue. You can then download directly from following location. It has no dependency so it will install individually.
