Probably need to create the device nodes.

Try
Code:
mkdir /dev/fusion

for node in 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7; do
    mknod /dev/fusion/$node c 253 $node
done
Udev will likely wipe that out on reboot so you may have to add this to
/etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules (I'm still getting to grips with udev so your mileage may vary here )
Code:
KERNEL=="fusion[0-7]*", NAME="fusion/%n", GROUP="video"
