Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-419
2006-04-19
-----------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 5
Name : m2crypto
Version : 0.15
Release : 3.2.fc5.1
Summary : Support for using OpenSSL in python scripts.
Description :
This package allows you to call OpenSSL functions from python scripts.
<snip>
This update can be installed with the 'yum' update program. Use 'yum update m2crypto' at the command line. For more information, refer to 'Managing Software with yum,' available at http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/yum/.
It looks like you need to update the m2crypto package in Fedora Core 5 to use SSL with python scripts. Let me know if you need any further help with this.

regards,
...aaron

I followed the instructions and installed all of these packages from repositories on xubuntu:
fuse fuse-source python-fuse gmailfs python-libgmail

I get this error when trying to mount gmailfs:
Code:
chris@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /media/gmail
mount: unknown filesystem type 'gmailfs'
chris@ubuntu:~$

I don't know anything about ubuntu, sorry. Did the Ubuntu packages install everything to the right place?

/usr/bin/gmailfs.py
/sbin/mount.gmailfs
/etc/gmailfs.conf

mount.gmailfs is the file system hack. If the files are not in the right place, try moving them around or installing it from scratch by following the directions in the HOWTO.

...aaron

Can you actually use it like a normal disk? In the sence that, could you, persay, compile in the mounted directory, something like that? (not that you would really want to I suppose, it would be very slow, even on a T3 line like we have at school.)

yes, it's just like haveing a mounted partition. All the inodes and fs system are simulated with gmailfs.py, but it is veerryyy slow if you are updating a lot of small files like if you were to compile.

I'm not sure what your're saying here. The files are definitely in the wrong place. Did you try fixing them?

note: /usr/bin is probably not in the root users $PATH which means 'mount' will not be able to find mount.gmailfs. If you do not want to move the files around, try passing the full path as the file system.

Does 'lsmod' show the fuse module loaded? You might need to modprobe it manually. I remember getting a similar error when I was first playing around with this. It was caused by me doing something incorrectly during the set up. Unfortunatly I don't remember what it was that caused it.

I've played a bit with libgmail for fun a while back and found it very buggy and slow. Perhaps it has become better but well, too much work for very little gain. The extension installs in seconds and does the job.

Just for the fun of getting it to work this is a nice howto though.
I appreciate the effort and I have worked a few hours trying to get this to work. To the point where I can't get the gmailfs to mount properly, but I think for know the gSpace extension will do the trick.

Thanks for the link

I'm not really sure what your asking, or what this has to do with GmailFS, but I think 'man ntlm_auth' is what your looking for. Can't help you any more then that; I don't use windows, sorry.
