fuse for Debian
---------------

This is a source package that can be used to build module able to work
with any custom linux kernel. The source files are located in 
/usr/src/fuse.tar.bz2. There are (at least) three ways to build binary 
module from these sources.

1) The "Debian recommended" way - should be the easiest one

   You can use module-assistant tool shipped with Debian. It simplifies 
   build procedure a lot and it's recommended way for non-experienced users.

   Building module using module-assistant should be as easy as the following:

   # m-a a-i fuse

   Of course make sure you have module-assistant package installed already.

2) The "Debian obsolete" way

   You can use another tool called make-kpkg which main purpose is to build
   kernel images, but can be also used for modules. Just ensure you know
   which kernel do you use and install corresponding kernel headers for it.
   
   It could look like this:
   
   # apt-get install kernel-headers-2.4.27-1-686
   # tar jxvf /usr/src/fuse.tar.bz2
   # cd /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.4.27-1-686
   # make-kpkg modules
   # dpkg -i ../fuse-module-2.4.27*
   
   Of course make sure you have kernel-package package installed already.
   
3) The "I know everything" way.

   You can try to build module by hand, but then you probably know what 
   to do, so do it yourself.
