First of all, I just wanted to say “Thank you” for picking up where Red Hat/CentOS left off. I migrated my server to CentOS 8 a few months ago and I was disappointed (to say the least) when I saw that support was being dropped. AlmaLinux has been a great replacement so far.
Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to mount exFAT volumes and I can’t seem to find the ‘exfat-utils’ package in the available repositories. I get the following error when attempting to mount:
mount: /mnt/externalhdd: unknown filesystem type ‘exfat’.
These are the repositories I have enabled:
$ yum repolist repo id repo name appstream AlmaLinux 8 - AppStream baseos AlmaLinux 8 - BaseOS epel Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 8 - x86_64 epel-modular Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux Modular 8 - x86_64 extras AlmaLinux 8 - Extras powertools AlmaLinux 8 - PowerTools
There is a ‘exfatprogs.x86_64’ available and I see that ‘mkfs.exfat’ is installed, but unfortunately these aren’t what I need. Can someone provide some insight as to what I’m missing or when the necessary package/support will be added? Thanks!
