I'm posting on this thread to maintain continuity, though there isn't much

I have been playing around with FUSE example programs (they are there in the
/examples directory of the FUSE tarball (, and
have modified one (examples/fusexmp.c) to mirror a specified dir instead of
the root dir. But it has some bugs, e.g renaming files doesnt work.

Anyone interested in setting these right? I would sure love some help!

Here is the link to the modified code:

The way to try this program out is:

1. Install FUSE (get the tarball and install, or get it from your distro's

2. As root, do: "modprobe fuse"

3. Do: "gcc -Wall `pkg-config fuse --cflags --libs` fusexmp-mod.c -o 

4. Do: "./fusexmp-mod /path/to/mount-point /FULL/PATH/to/dir/to/mirror"

5. Do: "cd /path/to/mount-point"

It is necessary that the mirrored dir's full path be given, and that it be
given as the last parameter to fusexmp-mod.

If you need help understanding anything, and are seriously interested, you
can always ask me! (though, I dont know much about this myself)
