Installing sshfs on Quantact Debian VPS

February 11th, 2007

I use my Quantact VPS for testing of various things, and sshfs-fuse is one of those things. Here's what I did to get it going:

apt-get install sshfs - installed but module probe failed
apt-get install linux-modules-2.6.18-4-xen-686

No go, still getting this error:

root@vps:~# modprobe -l
FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.16-xen/modules.dep: No such file or directory

Maybe this will help?

apt-get install linux-image-2.6.18-4-686

Had to run:

echo 'do_initrd=yes' >> /etc/kernel-img.conf;

Nope, now trying:

dpkg -i linux-modules*

Oh wait now we're getting somewhere:

Cool, their wiki is actually useful! Very good to know.

The Solution

Beautiful! The pre-built 2.6-16-xen kernel modules provided by Quantact did the trick, it works now and I'm able to mount remote directories via ssh. Totally cool.
