s3fs and centos 6.2

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , — admin @ 2:35 pm

Well today I was trying to install s3fs on a centos 6.2 server . So first of all I try this
yum install gcc libstdc++-devel gcc-c++ curl-devel libxml2-devel openssl-devel mailcap fuse fuse-devel
tar xvzf s3fs-1.61.tar.gz
cd s3fs-1.61/
./configure --prefix=/usr
make install

However the configure wasn’t working because of fuse version. I have installed 2.8.3 and I need 2.8.4

So the solution was to recompile the fuse also
yum remove fuse fuse* fuse-devel
yum install gcc libstdc++-devel gcc-c++ curl curl* curl-devel libxml2 libxml2* libxml2-devel openssl-devel mailcap
cd /usr/local/src
wget ""
tar -xzvf fuse-2.8.4.tar.gz
rm fuse-2.8.4.tar.gz
mv fuse-2.8.4 fuse
cd fuse/
./configure --prefix=/usr
make install
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/
modprobe fuse
pkg-config --modversion fuse (confirm that 2.8.4 is the version displayed)
cd ../
cd s3fs-1.61/
./configure --prefix=/usr
make install


  1. Was there a specific reason why you did not install the latest version of fuse 2.9.0 ?

  2. Hello
    Well, I think the program require something > then 2.8.3 and I chose one . But I think it should work with 2.9.0 also.
    If I will have time and same situation again I will post a update on this with 2.9.0.

  6. Hello, thank you for your post. Very helpful; but I have problem that occurs with the modprobe fuse step.

    FATAL: Module fuse not found.

    This is on On Centos v2.6.32-042stab059.7

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

  7. Hello
    This seam’s like you don’t have the fuse module compiled. I think you should try to see if you have that module after installer. Perhaps on your make you have a error and you didn’t do well.
