SSHFS on Gentoo

To install SSHFS on Gentoo you need to first compile your kernel with FUSE support:

File systems --->
  <*> FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) support

Next install the sshfs-fuse package:

emerge -av sshfs-fuse

You should now be able to “mount” filesystems via SSH. For example, to mount /home/steph from my.pc (remote) to /home/steph/mypc (local):

sshfs steph@my.pc:/home/steph /home/steph/mypc

To unmount:

fusermount -u /home/steph/mypc
