Mounting rclone remotes on macOS currently requires macFUSE, which relies on a kext and is very often flaky (at least for me). Kexts are also set to be deprecated on macOS soon.
FUSE-T is a new FUSE implementation that doesn't rely on a kext: https://www.fuse-t.org/
I just installed it and tried an rclone mount but it doesn't work:
Any chance FUSE-T support can be added to rclone?
As I understand it fuse-t provides a libfuse.dylib with the magic in it.
In theory cgofuse should just work with it.
I suspect rclone is having trouble finding the shared object to load.
It's looking for it here. Maybe you could copy it there or make a symlink
Thanks for that Nick, appears to be working now!
- FUSE-T's dylib is /usr/local/lib/libfuse-t-1.0.1.dylib
- I created a symlink to this file and named it libosxfuse.2.dylib
Mounts now appear to be working, will keep testing to make sure though!
Maybe fuse-t should be installing the symlink itself or maybe cgofuse should be looking in a different place, I'm not sure.
I think it's probably this. See screenshot below for what FUSE-T installs to /usr/local/lib - I guess the expectation is that "libfuse-t.dylib" is what's called.
I suggest you open an issue here on the cgofuse project page.
The code that needs changing is quite simple so you could even supply a pull request!
cgofuse dynamically loads the library itself - it doesn't use the OS dynamic loader. This means it needs to know where the library is. This has the advantage that you can run rclone on a mac without osxfuse/fuse-t installed and you'll only get an error when you try to use rclone mount.
I didn't write cgofuse that will be @billziss-gh but I know it quite well!
