As far as I understand, Windows doesn't ship with anything that would let you define your own filesystem without adding some code to the kernel (i.e., a driver). So you would need admin rights. The FUSE FAQ mention a few potential alternatives, but they all look like vaporware except for Dokan (which advertises sshfs support). It looks like your best bet ...

This answer is based on the behavior I've seen in Arch Linux. Hopefully it is not much different from Debian's. (Also, because it was empirically determined, I am not sure if it is going to be actually a good one.) It seems like you have to ensure that gvfsd and gvfs-fuse-daemon are running. Unfortunately, in my case starting them manually didn't have the ...

A friend posted me about archivemount (actual archive). There's a bit of work to get it setup (ie, it's not merely yum install archivemount). It needs libarchive and fuse-devel (yum install fuse-devel) installed.

Here is something close to what you are looking for, although you would need to be root to achieve it: $ dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/user/qqq.zfs bs=1M count=100 # zpool create -O compression=gzip -m /home/user/mnt qqq /home/user/qqq.zfs # chown user /home/user/mnt ZFS supports non root operations (i.e. delegation) but ZFS-FUSE doesn't implement them.

that's an application feature, not a system one. (just curious, do those windows 7 folders appear on a shell dir command?). Both Gnome and KDE have a filesystem-like API, GVFS on Gnome and kio on KDE. There are FUSE systems based on each one, so if the functionality you see on your filebrowser is based on either, there's hope.

Since encfs is built on top of fuse, the obvious way would be to port it to a fuse driver for Windows. Apparently the two most likely possibilities are Dokan and Eldos Callback Filesystem, though neither currently advertises encfs support. In the meantime, an alternative would be to run a tiny Linux file server inside a virtual machine or with Colinux. An ...

Frediano Ziglio announced a alpha of encfs4win on the basis of Dokan: http://groups.google.com/group/dokan/browse_thread/thread/27a58326f733572e/a533b59d8ed374f4 http://members.ferrara.linux.it/freddy77/encfs.html http://gitorious.org/encfs4win

First, you should use a folder like /mnt/remote OR /media/remote. /var is NOT for that purpose, you should leave it as it is. Second, fstab should look like this: [email protected]:/home/user /media/user fuse defaults,allow_other 0 0 OR [email protected]:/home/llib/FAH /media/FAH2 fuse defaults 0 0 (Example is from the Arch howto.)

File systems in user space advantages: Easier development Nice user friendly package (FUSE) to give you a nice template. You have to worry only about getting the special parts of your file system to work. Usable by non-privileged users. Disadvantages: Slower. Sometimes way way way slower. Not good if you want multiple users to use the same file ...

The interesting question here are ZFS Versions actually. it is impossible to mount ZFS Versions lower than the current one, as well as it is impossible to downgrade ZFS Pools. While FreeBSD 9 is currently at ZFS Version 28, ZFS-Fuse is not! Afaik ZFS-FUSE is at ZFS Veriosn 16. zpool upgrade -v will AFAIK print your current ZFS Version on FreeBSD. If it ...

After doing a little more research, I may have to give up on a pre-written solution and just write my own. PyFilesystem looks like it has potential, particularly the MultiFS fs type. Its FUSE code needs a patch to work with fuse4x. The MultiFS documentation isn't clear what whether it will create a directory on the writable fs, but I'll give it a try. ...

The easiest way to accomplish this would be to write a bash script to do this for you. I'm fairly certain you are not going to want to code this into the Kernel or Filesystem :) Logic like this should work: Descend into directories... Check if one file ... print folder/file... else print top folder

Unfortunately, I cannot post a comment, so I have to write an "answer" (I still don't understand this decision, but enough of the ranting). Since you've already discarded the bashoption and hinted towards a FUSEsolution, I'd like to give you a couple of "more or less viable" ideas while you implement your mp3fs: Enhancing struct stat with a new type, let's ...

The correct syntax for mounting sshfs shares at boot, in the /etc/fstab file is USERNAME@HOSTNAME_OR_IP:/REMOTE/DIRECTORY /LOCAL/MOUNTPOINT fuse.sshfs _netdev,user,idmap=user,transform_symlinks,identityfile=/home/USERNAME/.ssh/id_rsa,allow_other,default_permissions,uid=USER_ID_N,gid=USER_GID_N 0 0 It is an adaptation to non-systemd distros of the ...

I always use the first form, although without sudo (as long as you are in the admin group it should work). You can optionally pass a third parameter to use a log file. That might shed some light in the issue: mbpro:~ gerard$ ./Development/ext4fuse/ext4fuse /dev/disk0s5 t log mbpro:~ gerard$ ls t gerard lost+found The file "log" should now contain ...

try fuse-ext2 Install mac-fuse google it. and get http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/fuse-ext2/fuse-ext2-0.0.7.tar.gz?download and install. I've tested and work 100% in ext4 partition in MACOSX 10.6.7, a trick, to be read and save, use the command fuse-ext2 /dev/disk0sX /Volumes/linux -o force or reboot macosx before installation and auto mount ext4 in ...

How about this one: http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/ossp/ It emulates OSS (Open Sound System) /dev/dsp e.t.c. device nodes and forwards all operations to pulseaudio. I believe this was (one of) the first applications, if not the motivation, for CUSE.

I just replied with an example answer to another question (autofs+sshfs-answer) Remember! Autofs user by default is root. So get sshfs working with root first. auto.master line note! use your own uid and gid and specify your prefered mount point I use /auto/mehtod/address /auto/sshfs /etc/auto.sshfs uid=1000,gid=1000,--timeout=60,--ghost auto.sshfs ...

FUSE is the bridge between the kernel and the user-mode file system. For the kernel, each FUSE instance is a regular file system. For the user-mode file system, it's just a user-level C-style interface with callbacks. Obviously, to be recognized as a file system by the kernel, a kernel module has to be loaded. So, even if you manage to install as user, ...
