[Solved] fuse + ntfs + kernel-devel

Post by sounddoc » 2010/05/28 18:00:08

I'm at the end of my wits...

I have two CentOS 4 servers, one with fuse / ntfs-3g, etc... installed and one without. To install on server one, a quick 'yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g dkms dkms-fuse' work flawlessly. This is not the case the second server. here's the info, any help is appreciated. I believe the problem is the wrong version of kernel-devel, but I can't seem to get yum to install the right one:

[root@cehsdata modules]# uname -r
2.6.9-89.0.23.ELsmp
[root@cehsdata modules]# rpm -qa | grep fuse
fuse-ntfs-3g-2009.11.14-1.el4.rf
dkms-fuse-2.7.4-1.nodist.rf
fuse-2.7.4-1.el4.rf
[root@cehsdata modules]# rpm -qa | grep kernel-devel
kernel-devel-2.6.9-89.0.25.plus.c4
[root@cehsdata modules]# modprobe fuse
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
[root@cehsdata modules]#


uninstalling and reinstalling kernel-devel keeps me stuck with this version.

any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Could you post the output from:

rpm -qa kernel\* | sort

As you suspected, it is probably a -devel mismatch problem.

Thanks for the reply.

I most likely is:

[root@cehsdata drivers]# rpm -qa kernel\* | sort
kernel-2.6.9-78.EL
kernel-2.6.9-89.0.23.EL
kernel-2.6.9-89.0.23.plus.c4
kernel-2.6.9-89.0.25.plus.c4
kernel-devel-2.6.9-89.0.25.plus.c4
kernel-smp-2.6.9-78.EL
kernel-smp-2.6.9-89.0.23.EL
kernel-smp-2.6.9-89.0.23.plus.c4
kernel-smp-2.6.9-89.0.25.plus.c4
kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-89.0.25.plus.c4
kernel-utils-2.4-20.el4
[root@cehsdata drivers]#


since my first post, I have also installed kernel-smp-devel, but it didn't help.

Thanks again.

I see the problem. According to your first post, your [b]running[/b] kernel is kernel-2.6.9-89.0.23.EL. yum always retrieves the [i]latest[/i] kernel and kernel-devel according to what is enabled in the repos. In your case, yum found kernel-devel-2.6.9-89.0.25.plus.c4 as the latest kernel-devel.

What you need to do is to reboot your system. You will then have kernel-2.6.9-89.0.25.plus.c4 as the running kernel which now matches the kernel-devel package.

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. I definitely changed grub to load that kernel in an attempt to make both machines as identical as I could in order to troubleshoot this.

I'll let you know how it works out.

success!

I think installing the kernel-smp-devel package /might/ have been the fix, as I'm running a c4smp kernel.

Thanks again, hope this helps someone in the future.

Thanks for reporting back. Glad to hear you've got things sorted out. Yes, this "matching" running kernel/kernel-devel is a common problem.
