Fuse Filesystem In Userspace
« on: March 21, 2006, 07:37:50 am »
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 :-)

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?

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: [Select]
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.  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.
