Yes.  If you go to this page on the ElRepo site:


and check the limitations you will see that this is the expected

If you want full write capabilities with NTFS I suggest that you remove
kmod-ntfs and instead use the fuse-ntfs-3g package from RPMForge.  That
relies on DKMS ( which works well enough for me ) and has full
read-write capabilities.
