Adding NFS support for non linux native file systems? (especially for non dev fs )
 
Hi,

I have created a "non device" file system. that i mounted on my local machine. say /mnt/myfs

Now I want to export this via nfs.. but as my simple file system is not part of linux kernel, I cant export that..

so how can i achieve that???

can i use FUSE module for same reason?

FUSE will export as NFS, most distros do not enable this by default, so it means a kernel recompile.

There are a bunch of howto's for various fs's out there, have a look. GIYF.

Anyways I have a module for my file system, so can I use that to integrate with kernel? what is ment by integration?
when i tried to mount same, it gave warning NFS export not supported.

and on client side i got error in "getfh" i.e. get file handle error.

however filesystem worked fine with samba export and cifs mount. but i need to do this from nfs.
