Is fuse supported on CircleCI? - sshfs fails


#1

I’m trying to mount a directory using remote server using sshfs, but it fails. I wonder sshfs, which is based on fuse is available on CircleCI container.

I tried following command and got error.

$ echo "$SSH_PASSWORD" | sshfs "user@remote.com:/home/username/" "/tmp/tmp.00pbCS55eJ" -p 1234 -o password_stdin
fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first

I googled and found a StackOverflow question. It says I can solve this problem by upgrading or reinstalling kernel.

However, on CircleCI container, there looks no kernel package installed. Does this mean CircleCI container is Docker container.

According to some Google results, fuse is not available on Docker container in some cases, but it depends on host configuration: github.com/docker/docker/issues/514

Does fuse work on CircleCI container?


#2

CircleCI uses unprivileged LXC (plain Linux containers). FUSE is not available for use within the container.


#3

Got it.
Thanks :slight_smile:


#4

I’m trying to build an AppImage application which requires FUSE is there a path forward?
