NTFS Support

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

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. /dev/sda3 on /mnt/ntfs use:

ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt/ntfs

Yum plugins

There are some interesting plugins for yum that can make easier (or faster) using the package installer. I use:

yum-changelog
Let’s you see changed things on packages to update
yum-allowdowngrade
To easy downgrade (instead of upgrade) a package
yum-downloadonly
You can only download (without install or update) a package
yum-fastestmirror
Selects fastest mirror
yum-skip-broken
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
