Description Nikos Chantziaras 2009-08-21 18:45:31 UTC
While experimenting with another package (ntfs3g, see bug 282222), I came across this warning:

****************************************************************************
* WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING   *
* The FUSE user space binaries were NOT installed with root directory      *
* executable prefix. This means that automounting NTFS volumes during boot *
* could fail. This can be fixed the below way by reinstalling FUSE using   *
* the right 'configure' option during FUSE compilation:                    *
*       ./configure --exec-prefix=/                                        *
*       make && sudo make install                                          *
* WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING  WARNING   *

The lead developer of NTFS-3G claims that if a distribution ships a FUSE that has not been configured with "--exec-prefix=/", a bug report should be filed for that package so that a FUSE is shipped that has been configured correctly: http://forum.ntfs-3g.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=592
