Description Richard Dawe 2005-11-16 09:16:34 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050923 Fedora/1.7.12-1.5.1

Description of problem:
FUSE is Filesystem in Userspace, which was integrated into the 2.6.14 kernel. This is available on FC4 via the kernel-2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 package. FUSE's userspace communicates with the kernel via /dev/fuse. If /dev/fuse isn't present, userspace filesystems don't work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "modprobe fuse" as root.
2. ls -la /dev/fuse fails.

Actual Results:  /dev/fuse didn't appear.

Expected Results:  /dev/fuse should have appeared.

Additional info:

/etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules has no entry for /dev/fuse.

FUSE ships with a udev rules file for creating /dev/fuse automatically:

[rich@katrina ~]$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/40-fuse.rules
KERNEL="fuse", NAME="%k", MODE="0666"

This works.

Note that I'm in the process of packaging up the userspace component of FUSE for incorporation into Extras. I'll include FUSE udev rules file in that, until udev includes the /dev/fuse rule.

I've marked this as low priority, since there are currently no userspace packages for FC4.

This is also true on x86_64.
Comment 2 Albert Strasheim 2005-11-17 10:09:11 EST
Works for me:

[root@dogbert albert]# uname -a
Linux dogbert.sdsl.sun.ac.za 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4smp #1 SMP Wed Nov 9 18:34:11 EST
2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@dogbert albert]# ls -l /dev/fuse
ls: /dev/fuse: No such file or directory
[root@dogbert albert]# /sbin/modprobe fuse
[root@dogbert albert]# ls -l /dev/fuse
crw-rw----  1 root root 10, 229 Nov 17 17:10 /dev/fuse
[root@dogbert albert]# rpm -q udev
Comment 3 Richard Dawe 2005-11-17 16:38:35 EST
OK, today it works. I checked the kernel sources - /dev/fuse gets created
automatically by the module.

It must have been user error when I tried it before (twice - i386, x86_64).

Sorry for the bogus report.
