You can add NTFS support via 2 different ways. NTFS-3G, a user space program (available on Extras), or via a kernel module (kmod-ntfs) available on Livna.
NTFS-3G is a user space file system that provides NTFS suport. To install simply:
yum install ntfs-3g
To mount a filesystem, f.e.
ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt/ntfs
There are some interesting plugins for yum that can make easier (or faster) using the package installer. I use:
- Let’s you see changed things on packages to update
- To easy downgrade (instead of upgrade) a package
- You can only download (without install or update) a package
- Selects fastest mirror
- Skips broken packages (usually where dependencies cannot be resolved) and proceeds with the rest of the operation
There are several more plugins. This is my choice, ymmv. To install it:
yum install yum-changelog yum-allowdowngrade yum-downloadonly yum-fastestmirror yum-skip-broken
