I installed the shfs package through pacman, and there is a sshd running on the server. However, once I enter the command
shfsmount -P<port#> <user>@<server>:/var/www ~/websites/<server_name>/
(with the values in <> replaced by the appropriate values of course), I am able to enter the user's password and then the following error shows:
shfsmount: shfs filesystem not supported by the kernel
I have done some web/forum searching and have not found anything that helps. I have tried to build the shfs package through abs, but it seems to use an older kernel version (2.6.22) than I have (2.6.27) and the makepkg command errors out with a location-not-found type of error.
I would like to know if there is something in the abs files I need to change for it to use the correct kernel for building, or whether there is a way to get the repository package to work.
I look forward to your responses, and thanks for your time.
If not having loaded the fuse module is your problem, note that you can also put fuse into the module-list of /etc/rc.conf to auto-load at boot. See sshfs wiki article.

Well, using the sshfs method did work. However, shfsmount still returns the same error. When I installed sshfs, it also pulled in fuse, but doing
does not change anything that I can see. Is sshfs the same as shfs? They seem to be two different packages.
Also, I am using Xfce with Thunar as my file browser. When I do the sshfs method outlined in the wiki link above (which does work), Thundar acts like the folder where the mounted stuff is does not exist. When I hit refresh, the <server> folder will show up for a second, then dissapear. When I go through a text editor and open a file from there, the file opener can see the folder with no problems. I can look around in there with the terminal as well. Is there a way I can get Thunar to view that folder?
