I did not seem to have the repo in /etc/repo.d, so I did this:

wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
yum install epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
yum install --enablerepo=epel ntfs-3g

I got a rather long error message which ended with this:

Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: epel/i386. Please verify its
path and try again

I think I should try to find the source and compile.
