Previous: Installing FUSD
Before installing FUSD, make sure you have all of the following
packages installed and working correctly:
- Linux kernel 2.4.0 or later. FUSD was developed under
2.4.0 and should work with any kernel in the 2.4 series.
- devfs installed and running. FUSD dynamically registers
devices using devfs, the Linux device filesystem by Richard Gooch.
For FUSD to work, devfs must be installed and running on your system.
For more information about devfs installation, see the
Note that some distributions make installation devfs easier. RedHat
7.1, for example, already has all of the necessary daemons and
configuration changes integrated. devfs can be installed simply by
recompiling the kernel with devfs support enabled and reconfiguring
LILO to pass "devfs=mount" to the kernel.
