FUSE Challenge

So, after a few days of beating around this problem, I’ve come to the conclusion that either I’m a complete Linux tool (likely) or there is something fundamentally wrong with FUSE 2.7.4 and CentOS 5.3 (x86-64 edition). (FUSE = Filesytem in User Space) To that end, I’ve got the following challenge: show me a working FUSE 2.7.4 installation on CentOS 5.3 (64 bit) and provide the procedures for getting said configuration to work and I’ll get you an EMC T-shirt. Free. Gratis.

Rules:
a.) FUSE must be able to be recognized as a LOADED kernel module.
b.) Open to residents of the United States and Canada only. International folks, while I love the work you do, the cost for shipping a t-shirt to APJ or EMEA would far outstrip the time you spent.
c.) Optional: package the sucker up as an OVF or a Virtual Appliance and I’ll double the T-shirt order.

Sound good?

(This is for an Installable FileSystem [IFS] project I’m working on….)

Holler at me on Twitter or in the comments below to get started.

EDIT: I’ve solved the problem (really stupidly easy) but I want to see who else can get this done. Given that this particular IFS installation is designed ONLY for RHEL5, this will point the way towards using somewhat “freer” distributions. ;) Keep it coming!
