The build uses requiredbuilder to generate the dependencies.

About sshfs:

sshfs-fuse: This is a filesystem client based on the SSH File Transfe
sshfs-fuse: Protocol. Since most SSH servers already support this protocol it
sshfs-fuse: is very easy to set up: i.e. on the server side there's nothing

There is a good article on how to mount remote ssh filesystems using sshfs at You can use the sshfs and fusermount commands as a regular user, as long as that user owns the mountpoint to which the remote filesystem is being mounted. You will need to issue the "modprobe fuse" command as root before running sshfs, if the fuse module isn't already loaded.

Post any comments or issues with this package in this thread only.

I know this is not really the place to post this, but:

It's good to see you around here again John!
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.
