ext2fuse Publisher's description
from Tom Scholl
ext2fuse is an implementation of the ext2 filesystem in user space, using the FUSE library.
ext2fuse is an implementation of the ext2 filesystem in user space, using the FUSE library. Uses might include as a base for filesystem projects, for FUSE or e2fsprogs testing, and for situations when a kernel mode filesystem is not appropriate.
What's New in This Release:Unexpected features supported:
??? Secure deletion. Currently is a compile time option, but could easily be made a run-time flag.
Features currently not supported:
??? Proper sparse write implementation - atm we just write 0's to the file
??? Large file support (untested, may happen to work, unlikely)
System Requirements:??? libext2, which is included in e2fsprogs
??? fuse kernel module, which is available in kernel version 2.6.11 and later
??? fuse user-space tools
ext2fuse -n devicename -m mountpoint [fuse common options]...
-o allow_other allow access to other users
-o allow_root allow access to root
-o nonempty allow mounts over non-empty file/dir
-o default_permissions enable permission checking by kernel
-o fsname=NAME set filesystem name
-o large_read issue large read requests (2.4 only)
-o max_read=N set maximum size of read requests
-o max_write=N set maximum size of write requests
-o max_readahead=N set maximum readahead
-o async_read perform reads asynchronously (default)
-o sync_read perform reads synchronously
