    Fuse / Modprobe Help


    I am trying to mount via fuse a music directory on another box on which I have an account:

    mydebian:/home/me# sshfs myname@10.x.x.xx:/music /mnt/music
    Password:
    modprobe: Can't locate module fuse
    fusermount: fuse device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first
    mydebian:/home/me# modprobe fuse
    modprobe: Can't locate module fuse

    Seeing as I am an apt-get kind of gal, I have no idea about using modprobe. It seems I am missing the fuse module - where would it be? I installed fuse without errors. I have logged out and back in. Can anyone point me in the right direction so I can get this directory mounted?

    Cheers,
    Jude

    Have you tried apt-cache search fuse and looked to see if you can install the module that way? My guess is that you haven't installed the module onto your system yet, so obviously you can't load it into the kernel. Here's what I came up with:
    Code:
    Package fuse-source
    
        * stable (utils): Filesystem in USErspace (source for kernel module)
          2.2.1-4sarge2: all
          2.2.1-4: all
    
    Package fuse-utils
    
        * stable (utils): Filesystem in USErspace (utilities)
          2.2.1-4sarge2: alpha amd64 arm hppa i386 ia64 m68k mips mipsel powerpc s390 sparc
          2.2.1-4: amd64
    Plus 9 more packages. Try installing some of them and modprobe fuse each time.
    Flies of a particular kind, i.e. time-flies, are fond of an arrow.

    I have installed all of the fuse packages I can find. If there is a module, where would I find it? Is there a directory where modules are kept? Are modules identifiable by a filename extension? Any and all module help appreciated.

    Does your kernel include the fuse module?

    Is it a stock Debian kernel or a custom one?
    Code:
    uname -a
    If your kernel does not have the fuse module, then you can install with with module-assistant :
    Code:
    apt-get install module-assistant 
    apt-get install fuse-source
    cd /usr/src
    m-a prepare
    m-a a-i fuse
    depmod -ae $(uname -r)
    Then you should be able to do :
    Code:
    modprobe fuse

    I run into this same trouble. Im attempting to get a USB drive mounted under centos. The machine is running trixbox ce. Its basicly an appliance so I did not install the OS it was pre defined.

    Anyway I installed ntfs-g3 as well as force using yum

    # yum list | grep fuse
    fuse.i386 2.7.3-1.el5.rf installed
    fuse-ntfs-3g.i386 1.2918-1.el5.rf installed


    and still when I do modprobe

    [root@gclan-pbx src]# modprobe fuse-ntfs-g3
    FATAL: Module fuse_ntfs_g3 not found.
    [root@gclan-pbx src]# modprobe fuse-ntfs
    FATAL: Module fuse_ntfs not found.
    [root@gclan-pbx src]# modprobe fuse
    FATAL: Module fuse not found.
    [root@gclan-pbx src]# modprobe ntfs-g3
    FATAL: Module ntfs_g3 not found.


    Any thoughts?
