Load source from multiple sources to a single mount point using FUSE

Hi All,

I am trying to use FUSE to load source from multiple points to a single mount directory. I wanted to know if anybody has tried this and what approach I should take.

Thanks in Advance...

This sounds vaguely like a union mount. I've had reasonably good luck with the FUSE unionfs implementation by radek

There is also 'aufs' as an external module, but unionfs is now in the kernel.

Are you writing the FUSE fs and if not do you have source access?
You could probably populate the directories from many filesystems.
