mount: unknown filesystem type ‘exfat’ – Fedora 24

Hello folks,

Having issues mounting your flash drive on Fedora 24? Here are quick steps to make things work:

Install the free and non-free RPMFusion repository. The fuse-exfat package is not available in Fedora at install due to patent issues. Thanks Microsoft! As a result, you need to get it from a third-party repository:

sudo rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm 

sudo rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

Then install fuse-exfat:

sudo dnf -y install fuse-exfat

Done. Please let me know if it worked, or if you encountered issues!

Greetings,

Shailen
