Installing Jungledisk and getting it to work can be a royal pain. Here are the steps I used to get it to work on CentOS 4 and 5.
I first installed Junglediskworkgroup on my Mac. This allowed me to use the junglediskworkgroup-settings.xml file for my Linux setup.
You can use the Windows version as well to get the needed *-settings.xml file for use in the Linux environment.
Ensure that you copy this file to your Linux server for use. I will not cover how this is done in this post.
I like to make build-“project” folders for stuff I am working on. This keeps things clean and I have a master build directory for everything I work on.
Now you need to grab the .tar.gz file for jungledisk.
Grab it from here
I used wget and copied the url of the file I needed by right clicking and choosing “copy link”
Be sure to user your own url from the site as this url may or may not work.
Uncompress junglediskworkgroup64-261a.tar.gz .
tar -zxvf junglediskworkgroup64-261a.tar.gz
You should now have a junglediskworkgroup folder with the jungledisk command line application.
Now copy the junglediskworkgroup-settings.xml into this folder.
cp /path/to/junglediskworkgroup-settings.xml build-jungledisk/junglediskworkgroup/
Now you need to install dkms dkms-fuse and fuse from dag.wieers.com
Again, I used wget to get the rpm files. I put them in build-jungledisk and then installed them with.
rpm -ivh *.rpm
Once the rpms are installed you need to
and verify it is installed with
lsmod | grep fuse
Before I could start jungledisk, I had to edit the cacheDirectory path in the junglediskworkgroup-settings.xml. I created a new path in /opt/
mkdir -p /opt/jungledisk/cache/
Then I edited the junglediskworkgroup-settings.xml and replaced the cacheDirectory with this, which reflected the new path.
If things are right, you can now start jungledisk
./jungledisk /media/jungledisk -o config=/path/to/junglediskworkgroup-settings.xml
Make sure to use the proper and full path to junglediskworkgroup-settings.xml
You should now see the new mount on the system with
jungledisk#jungledisk 382G 0 382G 0% /media/jungledisk
If you have issues check /var/log/junglediskwg.log
