gcfuse - Use FUSE To Mount GameCube Filesystems

Note (February, 2018): The original build instructions below were written circa 2006 and are a bit obsolete. This source code should still compile and run on modern Linux kernels using this process:

  1. Be sure to have FUSE libraries installed (as of Ubuntu 16.04, this package is 'libfuse-dev')
  2. Clone this repository
  3. Execute the following build command:

gcc -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -Wall src/gcfs.c src/main.c src/tree.c -o gcfs -lfuse

This will build the binary executable gcfs. Use the Usage section below for instructions on running this utility.

gcfuse is a program that allows you to mount a Nintendo GameCube DVD disk image as a read-only part of the Linux filesystem. This allows the user to browse the directory structure and read the files within. Further, gcfuse provides access to the main program .dol and also creates a special file called .metadata in the root directory of the mounted filesystem.

gcfuse accomplishes all this using Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE), available at:

Note that there are likely to be bugs and perhaps even security problems. It is currently meant as primarily an experimental research tool for studying GameCube discs.


	- Linux 2.4.x or 2.6.x (as of 2.6.14 FUSE is part of the
	  kernel, but you still need user libraries)
	- FUSE ( 2.5.x or higher


	./configure && make


	make install


	gcfuse <image_file.gcm> <mount_point>

To unmount previously mounted file, use:

	fusermount -u <mount_point>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
