I have non-root access to a SUSE enterprise linux system. I need to use FUSE but the FUSE libraries are not installed on it (fuse itself is installed on it though). Hence I am attempting to install fuse in my home dir.
I have specified a prefix dir on my configure command , but
make install fails due to the following reason:
libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c fusermount /home/gabriel/opt/fuse-2.8.7/installation/bin/fusermount libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c ulockmgr_server /home/gabriel/opt/fuse-2.8.7/installation/bin/ulockmgr_server /bin/mkdir -p /sbin /usr/bin/install -c ./mount.fuse /sbin/mount.fuse /usr/bin/install: cannot remove '/sbin/mount.fuse': Permission denied make: *** [install-exec-local] Error 1
As you can see, it tries to install mount.fuse to /sbin for some reason. I even tried by manually changing the path of the variable MOUNT_FUSE_PATH in the Makefile (it was set to /sbin), but the error persists. Is it because FUSE has to be installed as root?
I have tried this on fuse versions 2.7.2, 2.8.7.
