RE: [K12OSN] fuse problems on 5.0.0EL -- Bug confirmed

Here's some pertinent info on this subject matter (see below).  I
haven't been able to see if it'll work for me, because atrpms is down
right now.  I'm still concerned about all the dependencies between fuse
and ltsp-specific packages.

Sorry, I should have been more descriptive. They have the FUSE /kernel
module/ disabled. External kernel modules are, uh, interesting to build,
as I understand it. Probably not for the weak hearted. They need to
match the running kernel, so every time the kernel is updated, you need
to rebuild the module.

I thought I heard that ATrpms is building said kernel module. Google
pointed me to this:


CentOS has occasionally built kernels with options turned on that aren't
on in the RHEL kernels (Appletalk comes to mind). Don't know if they'll
do the same for 5.
