2.6.  RHEA-2009:1320: fuse

fuse, a new package that enables users to mount FUSE file systems, is now available.
FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) is an interface for userspace programs to export a virtual file system to the Linux kernel. FUSE also aims to provide a secure method for non-privileged users to create and mount their own file system implementations.
FUSE, which can implement a fully functional file system in a userspace program, consists of three main parts: a kernel filesystem module; a userspace library; and a mount utility. This package contains the mount utility, fusermount; the FUSE userspace tool to mount FUSE file systems. BZ#252372)


FUSE has no relationship with the ZX Spectrum emulator also known as Fuse.
Anyone looking to mount FUSE file systems or otherwise use FUSE should install this new package.
