Default Re: Fedora Core 2: Solution without compiling kernel

This is great. I've downloaded the new RPM and the latest NVIDIA drivers work fantastic! However, ntfs support was not compiled in, and I've been pulling my hair out for the last two hours trying to compile a module. I've downloaded the updated source on linuxant, recomplied for NTFS support, recomplied the ntfs modules, loaded them, tried to mount an ntfs filesystem, and bang! module crashs: (from dmesg:

NTFS driver 2.1.6 [Flags: R/O MODULE].
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000234
printing eip:

I built the module by:

make clean
make mrproper
make xconfig (and enabled ntfs)
make prepare
make SUBDIRS=fs/ntfs modules
cp fs/ntfs/*.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/fs/ntfs
depmod -a
modprobe ntfs

Does anyone have ntfs support enabled in this kernel and working!!!! Any help is greatly appreciated
