INSTALLING NTFS-3G ON RED HAT 5.3 for AUTODESK FLAME, SMOKE, AND LUSTRE
 

Add RHEL EPEL Repo for RH5
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel release-5-4.noarch.rpm
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-5.rpm
sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-5*.rpm epel-release-5*.rpm

Install NTFS-3G
yum install ntfs-3g

Check that NTFS-3G installed correctly
/sbin/lsmod | grep ntfs

Installing Fuse
Add El Repo for RHEL-5 or Centos-5
rpm -Uvh http://www.elrepo.org/elrepo-release-5-5.el5.elrepo.noarch.rpm

Install Kmod-fuse for Red Hat 5.3 and Earlier (Fuse is installed by default in 5.4 and later)
yum install kmod-fuse

Check that Fuse installed correctly
/sbin/lsmod | grep fuse

Load the Fuse Driver
modprobe fuse

Run depmod so that Fuse and NTFS-3G load at boot up.
depmod -a

Install Gparted
yum install gparted

Install NTFSProgs (Allows Gparted to create NTFS partitions)
yum install ntfsprogs

Notes: Volumes Larger than 2.2TB must use GPT and not MBR (In case you decide to try formatting and need to choose)

Create a mount point for your array
mkdir /mnt/NTFS

Set permissions for it:
chown -R root:users /mnt/NTFS
chmod -R 777 /mnt/NTFS

Find the device ID for your NTFS array:
fdisk -l

Note the volume by it’s size.  In this case, there was a 14TB volume under /dev/sdb

However, NTFS volumes created in Windows 7 usually have a small (100MB) disk label partition called sdb1, and the actually primary partition (14TB) called /sdb2.  sdb2 is the partition you want to mount to /mnt/NTFS as it is the actual storage partition.

Add an entry in /etc/fstab so it auto mounts at boot
nano /etc/fstab

add to bottom of fstab list…
/dev/sdb2    /mnt/NTFS    ntfs-3g    defaults    0 0

To close the nano editor, hit Control-X, then Enter to save.

Reload all of your mount points:
mount -a

Now see if you can read and write to your newly mounted NTFS array.  If so, copy some data to it.  Then reboot into Windows and see if your data is available in Windows File Explorer.
