fuseMK5 has been developed by Jan Wagner. Most of the following information has been compiled from Jan's documentation (see http://fusemk5a.sourceforge.net/).
These instructions refer to installing fuseMK5 on the Mark5 computers with kernel 2.6.X and the StreamStore library version 7.X.
Copy the following packages to e.g. /root on the MK5 machine:
package debhelper needs to be installed (do with eg. synaptic installer)
As user root run:
dpkg -i makedev_2.3.1-83~bpo.1_all.deb dpkg -i fuse-source_2.5.3-1bpo1_all.deb dpkg -i fuse-utils_2.5.3-1bpo1_i386.deb dpkg -i libfuse2_2.5.3-1bpo1_i386.deb dpkg -i libfuse-dev_2.5.3-1bpo1_i386.deb apt-get install module-assistant
As user root run:
module-assistant prepare module-assistant build fuse module-assistant install fuse
Load the fuse kernel module:
Verfiy that the module has loaded:
lsmod | grep fuse should yield something like: fuse 41420 0
Make sure the module will be loaded during boot:
echo "fuse" >> /etc/modules
download fusemk5a-v1.0.2d.tar Create directory /root/fuseMk5 and unpack the tar into that directory.
possibly you need to change the path to the Streamstore installation in the Makefile (look for the SSD variable).
cd /root/fuseMk5 make make install
Create the mountpoint for the fuseMK5 filesystem:
chmod a+rwxt /mnt/diskpack
Check environment (add to .cshrc)
setenv STREAMSTOR_BIB_PATH /home/streamstor/Sdk/bib/
allow non-root users to read fuse filesystem
in /etc/fuse.conf enter
The MK5 software needs to be stoped before fuseMk5 can work:
mount the diskpack:
now you should be able to see the contents of the diskpack
and copy file from the diskpack:
cp /mnt/diskpack/* .
when you are finished don't forget to unmount the diskpack
fusermount -u /mnt/diskpack
chmod a+rw /dev/fuse chmod a+rw /dev/windrv6
alternatively you can setup udev rules to do that for you
go to /etc/udev/rules.d and create these two files
KERNEL="fuse", NAME="%k", MODE="0666"
KERNEL="windrvr6", NAME="%k", MODE="0666" KERNEL="windrvr", NAME="%k", MODE="0666"
