Description of problem:
NTFS filesystem should be supported read-only. Most other distributions support NTFS, why not Fedora? Having to recompile the kernel is too big a hassle for most. Kernel module would work also.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load Fedora on machine with existing NTFS partition (leave NTFS alone).
2. Try to mount NTFS filesystem.
3. cat /proc/filesystems
Actual Results: No NTFS support.
Expected Results: NTFS support compiled into kernel or available as kernel module.
