I made a little symlink-based filesystem made for merging several
mount points, based on FUSE. So i think it's a good place to announce
it, because my project doesn't have any website.
By the way, i would like to thank the whole FUSE developer team for
their great work :-)
AdditiveFS is in _early beta version_, but the basic functionnality is here=
It's far from complete, so if you want to contribute a new feature,
feel free to do so.
(send your patches at additivefs@...)
The main objective of this filesystem is : "I have several hard
drives, and i want all my stuff to be shared in one samba share, and
have the ability to add or remove a drive at any time."
I know it is also the goal of unionfs, but i had several kernel panics
while trying to use it, so i decided to make a 'basic but working'
A wiki-based nano-website will be present at http://additivefs.nyu.be/
when i'll find time to do so.
How to get it if you are interested : svn co http://svn.nyu.be/additivefs/
How to compile : make in the additivefs directory
Usage: additivefs /mount/point /storage1 [ /storage2 ... /storageN ]
Known limitations :
- Files are all symlinks to their real locations.
- Same file names in different mount points are currently not handled.
- the filesystem is currently read-only (i don't know if it's
possible to implement write support with the actual structure,
Comments are welcome too.
Have a nice day, all :)
