s3fs/fuse on Centos/RHEL

February 27th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

s3fs requires fuse 2.8.4, but on RHEL the latest version is 2.8.3, so fuse needs to be installed from source code.

yum remove fuse fuse* fuse-devel
yum install gcc libstdc++-devel gcc-c++ curl curl* curl-devel libxml2 libxml2* libxml2-devel openssl-devel mailcap

wget “https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/fuse/fuse-2.X/2.8.4/fuse-2.8.4.tar.gz?r=&ts=1299709935&use_mirror=cdnetworks-us-1”
tar -xzf fuse-2.8.4.tar.gz
cd fuse-2.8.4/
./configure –prefix=/usr
make
make install
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/
ldconfig
modprobe fuse
pkg-config –modversion fuse
cd ../
wget http://s3fs.googlecode.com/files/s3fs-1.63.tar.gz
tar -xzf s3fs-1.63.tar.gz
cd s3fs-1.63
./configure –prefix=/usr
make
make install

If when reinstalling s3fs you get this error:

No package ‘fuse’ found

You need to re-run this before compiling s3fs

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/
ldconfig
modprobe fuse
pkg-config –modversion fuse
