I got exFAT working with fuse-exfat
on my 32 bit LXDE install. Although I haven't experienced any problems, the software is in beta and the developers don't have access to Microsoft's system specifications, so don't do anything mission critical.
These are the steps I followed.
1. I used Synaptic to install scons
, and check that gcc
2. I downloaded fuse-exfat-0.9.8-1.fc17.i686.rpm
If you are running a 64 bit machine, you will probably want fuse-exfat-0.9.8-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm
3. I ran the following code:cd ~/Downloads/
rpm --install fuse-exfat-0.9.8-1.fc17.i686.rpm
rpm --install exfat-utils-0.9.8-1.fc17.i686.rpm
Now Synaptic recognizes fuse-exfat
as installed packages and my external HD auto-mounts.
