Are there intentions to include ntfs kernel modules & tools in later releases ??? It is easy enough for experienced people to add them (see www.linux-ntfs.org). However it probably stops a few from delving into linux any deeper. Lets face it Windows is ubiquitous but costly most people would be happy with an alternative but they cannot drop their windows investments (knowledge & software) that easily. One small step for fedora ....
As far as I can tell, Fedora is never going to include ntfs support -- the Fedora legal group seems to have re-examined the issue in 2005 and decided again that it definitely wouldn't be included: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=65749#c24 http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLegalIssues (search for NTFS) Aside from linux-ntfs.org, another way to install NTFS drivers on Fedora is to add the yum repository at http://rpm.livna.org/ and do "yum install kmod-ntfs". Also a great way to get other "free-as-in-beer" things that Fedora won't ever include, like nVidia/ATI graphics drivers and DVD-playing software. :) MEF -- Mary Ellen Foster http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/mef/ _______________________________________________ Fedora-women-list mailing list Fedora-women-list@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-women-list
