How to use these build scripts

Each folder in the project root directory contains a shell script called mkbuild. This script clones/pulls the corresponding git repository and builds the programm/lib. Each mkbuild script will create the following directories:

  • src: The source/cloned repo
  • build: The source is built in this folder
  • out: The resulting binaries

The commit and repo url using which fuse-nfs is built when using this build scripts can be changed using the environment variables {LIBNFS,FUSENFS,DOKANY}_{URL,CHECKOUT} These build scripts have been tested on a devuan linux distrbution. The following packages are required to build fuse-nfs using the provided build scripts: gcc mingw-w64 git libfuse-dev automake libtool make cmake

If you just want to build fuse-nfs, use the script /fuse-nfs/mkbuild.

The script /mkbuild (,the one in the project root directory), tries to build fuse-nfs using a lot of different repo versions, which ones is specified in /fuse-nfs/.target, and uploads these builds as github releases to The releses in this repo are updated each hour if necessary.

How to install a release in Windows

The first step is to choose a release. The releases are named repo1=ref1 repo2=ref2 .... If ref is master, the latest commit has been used for the release. Therefore, the newest release is always libnfs=master fuse-nfs=master dokany=master. However, this may not be the most stable release. If you want the newest stable release, choose the one with the most and highest version numbers.

The next step is to download the correct zip archive:

  • => linux amd64
  • => Windows 64bit
  • => Windows 32bit

Then download & install the correct dokany driver from Usually, the latest release will work just fine. If it doesn't try to use the version matching the one specified in the release of this repo.

Now, just unzip the downloaded folder. I recommand renaming the folder fuse-nfs and moving it to C:\Program Files\. You can now use fuse-nfs by opening a CMD Window and navigating into the unzipped folder, or if it is too inconvinient to switch into the folder, you can just add the folder to the system path. You can now type fuse-nfs.exe -h to display all available options. To mount a network share, the command could look like this: fuse-nfs.exe -n nfs://share-name-or-ip/your-export -m R. This would mount the export your-export from NFS share share-name-or-ip at Drive letter R.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
