Post Red Hat Enterprise 5.2 - Unable to access USB Hard Drive
Hello Everyone,
I am running a Red Hat Enterprise system that I am unable to plug in and access my portable hard drives from. I am sure that this is due to the fact that the drive is NTFS.

I am VERY new to Linux and am not sure how to or what I need to install to be able to access my USB portable hard drive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

JW

The usual cause is the fuse kernel module not being installed, see for instance :

If you still have problems, please give details of your configuration.

Thank you for the response.
That is the exact error that I am getting.

Where do I download the driver from?

Thank you again for your help!

Most likely, from the same place as where you downloaded the OS.

I did not build this box. The system was built previous to me coming to this company.

I just need for someone to tell me where I can get the drivers and how to install them.

Any help is greatly appreciated as I know next to nothing about Linux.

Thank you!

What is your configuration ? At the very least what is the output of :
Code:
uname -a

When I run uname -a this is what I get:

Linux mail.genevawoods.com 2.6.18-274.7.1.e15 #1
x86_64 GNU/Linux

You probably meant 2.6.18-274.7.1.el5, please use copy-and-paste to avoid such errors.

Now, this is a very old system whose archives must have been deleted by now, try the Google results when querying :
Code:
fuse-kmdl "2.6.18-274.7.1.el5"
