Fuse installation problems: "cannot remove `/sbin/mount.fuse': Permission denied"


I am trying to install FUSE in my home dir since I do not have root access to the system I am working on. (FUSE is installed on this system but its libraries are not)

During `make install`, I get the following error:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c fusermount /home/gabriel/opt/fuse-2.8.7/installation/bin/fusermount
libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c ulockmgr_server /home/gabriel/opt/fuse-2.8.7/installation/bin/ulockmgr_server
/bin/mkdir -p /sbin
/usr/bin/install -c ./mount.fuse /sbin/mount.fuse
/usr/bin/install: cannot remove `/sbin/mount.fuse': Permission denied
make[2]: *** [install-exec-local] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/h2/gabriel/opt/fuse-2.8.7/util'
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/h2/gabriel/opt/fuse-2.8.7/util'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
---------------------------------------------------------------------

I have configured it using --prefix={HOME}/opt/fuse/installation, and most of the files rightly go in this directory, but it tries to install mount.fuse to /sbin. I even manually modified the Makefile to change the location of the MOUNT_FUSE_PATH variable (which was set to /sbin for some reason), but I still get the same error.

Specs: SUSE Enterprise Linux, FUSE 2.8.7

Thanks for your help.

i would have the system administrator run
Code:
su -
zypper in fuse fuse-devel
or do you also need "gvfs-fuse " or "zfs-fuse"

FUSE is installed on this system but its libraries are not
????????????
"libfuse2" is required by gvfs-fuse
odd it should be installed
Code:
su -
zypper in gvfs-fuse  libfuse2

from your error

/usr/bin/install: cannot remove `/sbin/mount.fuse': Permission denied
if you do not have root permission you can NOT remove a system file

have the System Admin. do that.

...and if the SA doesn't install FUSE there'll be no setuid root fusermount binary and you won't be able to mount FUSE file systems.

So I *will* need root access to install fuse. It cannot be installed by a non-root user.
Thanks for your help.
