How can I get fuse to run at startup?


Hi

following on from the following thread
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=452914,

I've installed Fuse version 2.5.3 which is excellent when used with sshfs!

The problem I have is that fuse doesn't run at startup.

When I run sshfs from the command prompt, I get the error :

"fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: No such file or directory"

and so I have to start fuse manually (actually, I'm doing this in a very newbie way - by running "sudo make install" each time, which is probably not the best way...)

Is there a way to get Fuse to run automatically at startup?

Thanks

Clive

It depends on your distribution, but chances are that launching fuse from /etc/rc.d/rc.local would work.

Hi Yves,

I'm using Ubuntu Dapper 6.06. I wouldn't know what to add to the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local either.

Actually, having checked, I don't have an /etc/rc.d - I have rc0.d, rc1.d, etc. but I haven't found an rc.local file yet...

Thanks

[Resolved]

Just so that nobody wastes time working this one out, I found a way to do it :

I created a file with the content:

Code:
modprobe fuse
in /etc/init.d and made it executable. Then I used update-rc.d to make the new file run at startup.

I don't know if this is the right way, but it works.

Thanks
