Hello

Anyone got working Fuse filesystem http://fuse.sourceforge.net/ on Z.
They write that you need kernel >2.4.21 but some lower releases may work. Is it worth to try it?
I don't have installed crosscompile kernel devel environment so I am lazy to do it if it won't work :-)

it doesn't work out of the box with 2.4.18, I don' t know with 2.4.20

Silly question time:

does the fuse package in the main feed work?
(http://mail.pdaxrom.org/1.1.0beta1/Zaurus-7x0-860/feed/fuse_1.4-1_armv5tel.ipk)

If it doesn't work, what is it doing in the feed? There doesn't seem to be anything else in the feeds that one could test fuse with (ie there are no fuse enabled programs).

I had wanted to compile gphotofs but that requires the fuse headers, which are not available in the feeds. Is there a secret place on the pdaXrom website where sashz keeps header files for all the various libs? smile.gif

it perhaps works but a lot of filesystem needs version > 2

That fuse doesn't work in the feed (according to Sashz). I was told he played with his Siemens phone and used it but it's not good for anything nowadays. I tried to compile Fuse 2.x because I wanted sshfs and smbfs but got stuck with the parts connecting to the kernel. This is in harmony with the README that says in the 2.4.2 fuse release:
CODE
Dependencies
============

Linux kernel version 2.4.X where X >= 21 (some vendor kernels earlier
than this are also known to work).


If somebody is willing to backport it to 18/20, then it could work. dry.gif I'm not that kernel hacker type (yet).

I just came form our local Unix Users Group where someone gave a presentation on FUSE. Very slick! I'm impressed.
sshfs sure would be a nice addition to pdaXrom.
I wish I could help.
