rename ifuse binary to ifuse

Reported by Paul Sladen | March 25th, 2009 @ 02:00 AM | in 1.0 Release

Restore the ifuse binary name to 'ifuse' and drop the requirement to specific an (unused/ignored) command line parameter.

A symlink can be added to /somewhere/inconvenient/mount.fuse.fuse.fuse.fuse.fuse.ifuse and 'ifuse' can check the $0 it was called out so that this (less common case) works for contortionists.

This should restore the level of ease-of-use of six months. (Yes, auto-mounting can be done, but it doesn't have to compromise the common case).

    ./mount.fuse.ifuse /dev/blah dir

    is not that different from

    ./ifuse dir

    If you really need this functionality you need to provide a patch.

    Actually for a regular user it is:

    /sbin/mount.fuse.ifuse /dev/not/required/argument dir
    ifuse dir

    As noted somewhere else, installing the binary to "/sbin/" is only for software which uses "/lib/".
    Binaries linking with "/usr/lib" should be installed to "/usr/bin" by Linux FSB.

    It appears other fuse projects follow this and a symlink from "/usr/bin/ifuse" to "/sbin/mount.fuse.ifuse" could provide the same mount convenience if needed at all (or is it needed due to the automount behaviour?).

    I might take a shot at a patch sometime.

    • Milestone set to 1.0 Release

    Setting this to 1.0 release as I think:

    • reliable automounting is now done using the gvfs afc backend (will package once a libiphone/iFuse release tarbal makes it)
    • other fuse userspace fs drivers like the nero nrg mounter for instance and even ntfs-3g do not do it this way, but the way Paul mentioned
    • the fdi automount-hack file should be removed and effectively the exe renamed to ifuse and installed to the correct bin directory by default

    Patches upcoming...
