Version 0.1 released, initial release


fusedav is a Linux userspace file system driver for mounting WebDAV shares. It makes use of FUSE as userspace file system API and neon as WebDAV API.

Current Status

Version 0.2 works fine.


After installation just run fusedav with two arguments: the WevDAV URL and the local mount point:

fusedav http://webdav.foo.bar/ /tmp/test

You will be queried for a username and password if required. As long as the fusedav process is running, the file system is accessible under /tmp/test.


fusedav was developed and tested on Debian GNU/Linux "testing" from April 2006, it should work on most other Linux distributions since it uses GNU autoconf for source code configuration.

fusedav requires the neon (0.26 minimum - 0.25 does not suffice!) and FUSE (2.5 minimum) development library files for compilation.


As this package is made with the GNU autotools you should run ./configure inside the distribution directory for configuring the source tree. After that you should run make for compilation and make install (as root) for installation of fusedav.


Milos Szeredi for developing FUSE and some useful hints for its usage

Sebastien Estienne for some packaging work
