For a few months I've been using rpms that I've built of FUSE. The rpms
are split like this:
* fuse contains just fusermount and the .so files, plus documentation
* fuse-devel contains the .so symlink for dynamic linking, the static
libraries and headers.
* kernel_fuse is a dkms-based package containing the kernel module. dkms
<http://linux.dell.com/dkms/> is Dynamical Kernel Module Support. This
builds the module on install. It also rebuilds the module the first time
you boot a new kernel. This means much less work for the user. The
downside is that it builds the module as root - depending how paranoid
you are, you may not like that.
Attached are the spec files and dkms.conf file. Both spec files use the
same source tarball, fuse-2.3.0.tar.gz.
You can find my rpms for Fedora Core 3 here:
Would there be any interest in including the spec files in the FUSE sources?
If there is interest, I can come up with a patch. It would need to
integrate building of rpms into the build system. This is because rpm
won't build all the rpms. It will build the rpms based on the first spec
file. So you'll get either fuse+fuse-devel or just kernel_fuse.
Thanks, bye, Rich =]

We've tried this earlier, but it didn't really work out. There were
different spec files for different distros and different versions, and
I couldn't test either of them (I use debian).
