Just installed Debian 6 box. I wanted to mount my S3 bucket for some backups. So I followed instructions for http://code.google.com/p/s3fs/ .
1) I installed all perquisites asked in installation instruction. 2) Compiled and installed s3fs. 3) Configured by putting my credentials to passwd-s3fs. 4) Tried to mount my bucket: "/usr/bin/s3fs backupejekabsons /mnt"
I get error message "fuse: failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied" After googling a bit, I found out that I need to add "fuse" group to my account.
I added a group and relogged. Didn't help. I tried to reboot VM, still no result.
Some output that may be helpful: 1) edgarsj@1310-700-4568:~$ groups fuse edgarsj rvm
2) edgarsj@1310-700-4568:~$ id uid=1001(edgarsj) gid=111(fuse) groups=1002(edgarsj),111(fuse),1000(rvm)
3) edgarsj@1310-700-4568:~$ ls -la /dev/fuse crw-rw---- 1 root fuse 10, 229 Aug 12 15:36 /dev/fuse
I also tried to add this group to root and run as sudo. Same result.
Thanks for your attention, mates. Any help is appreciated.
