This project aims to provide a full-featured exFAT file system implementation for Unix-like systems. It consists of a FUSE module (fuse-exfat) and a set of utilities (exfat-utils).
Supported operating systems:
- Mac OS X 10.5 or later
Most GNU/Linux distributions already have fuse-exfat and exfat-utils in their repositories, so you can just install and use them. The next chapter describes how to compile them from source.
To build this project on GNU/Linux you need to install the following packages:
On Mac OS X:
- Xcode (legacy versions include autotools but their versions are too old)
- autoconf (set AUTOCONF_VERSION environment variable)
- automake (set AUTOMAKE_VERSION environment variable)
Get the source code, change directory and compile:
git clone https://github.com/relan/exfat.git cd exfat autoreconf --install ./configure make
Then install driver and utilities (from root):
You can remove them using this command (from root):
Modern GNU/Linux distributions (with util-linux 2.18 or later) will mount exFAT volumes automatically. Anyway, you can mount manually (from root):
mount.exfat-fuse /dev/spec /mnt/exfat
where /dev/spec is the device file, /mnt/exfat is a mountpoint.
