linux default iconFUR filesystem Publisher's description

FUR is a application that let the user mount a Windows CE based device on your Linux file system.

FUR is a application that let the user mount a Windows CE based device on your Linux file system: it uses the brilliant FUSE (acronym of File system in UserSpacE of Miklos Szeredi) and the great librapi2 of the Synce Project, a unix implementation of the RAPI protocol (that your device use to communicate with your other operating $ystem ) which you can find here, along with other very nice tools.

You execute it with proper arguments, then (if everything goes fine) the entire file system of your (previously connected) handheld will appear automagically mounted like a regular Linux file system where you will be able to copy, move read and write data with your favorite programs.

FUR filesystem means FUSE use libRAPI.

What dose not?

?пїЅ Not very stable, particulary if used concurrently by different processes (but should be usable).
?пїЅ Not well tested.
?пїЅ The source is horrible(Tm).
?пїЅ The implementation is more involved than it should.
?пїЅ Lack documentation.
?пїЅ Not even remotely optimized.
?пїЅ Configuration tools deficient.
?пїЅ Random access I/O is anti-optimized.
?пїЅ Write is bugged (maybe a problem with concurrent file access).
?пїЅ The resource locking system (e.g. to prevent different processes to write on the same file) is only roughly implemented (there's a lot to be done).
?пїЅ Total absence of a caching system of some sort (which i hope to implement, sooner or later).
?пїЅ Some errors are to obscure (and maybe not well implemented).
?пїЅ Some attributes (e.g. ctime) are not implemented (the needed function in the librapi2 library is not yet implemented).
?пїЅ No UID/GID check: this is not a security issue: only the user that invoke the dccm demon can access the filesystem, but other users should be able to see some kind of error message (which i will implement soon).
?пїЅ Lot of other things i have forgot now.
?пїЅ The log reporting suck

What's New in This Release:

?пїЅ Code was merged that allows FUR to read the time information from the files.

System Requirements:

?пїЅ Filesystem in Userspace 2.4.2
?пїЅ SynCE 0.9.1
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
