Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21671
No NTFS support in Redhat 7.0 Kernel
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:17:30 EDT
Not really a bug, but the Kernel installed by 7.0 does not seem to have NTFS file system support compiled in. Really annoying on dual-boot
Linux/WinNT or Win2k systems.
NTFS support is buggy - it eats disks. It's intentionally disabled.
Eh? _Write_ support is dangerous (always was and can be
turned off when compiling the kernel), but read-only
works fine for me (both NT 4.0 and W2K, since 2.1.something
up to 2.4.0-test12 kernels). It would be nice to have it
included by default, not everyone likes to compile kernels :-)
