sshfs for Darwin

Filed under: Macs! — by lahar @ 7:04 am sshfs for Darwin (Mac OS X)

This certainly looks interesting: a utility based on the very cool FUSE doohickey to provide a universal disk and disk partition mounting utility which can mount remote drives through ssh. This would be really handy for doing some of my research remotely (read: at the coffee shop). That however would require the package to work: neither the kernel extension nor the binary utility install correctly, so I’m guessing that the package is currently Intel-only, and I don’t feel like going through and compiling the thing myself.

UPDATE: Well, duh. It says right on the web page that it’s Tiger only. I’ll probably have to turn to AFP’s package instead.

UPDATE #2: *&)*&. According to the MacFUSE homepage the system itself only works under 10.4. Looks like I’ll have to wait for Leopard since I never felt upgrading to Tiger is worth it.
