Sorry for the possible lame question, but what is that dkms-fuse good for?

I also find  some patches at
http://ftp.gluster.com/pub/gluster/glusterfs/fuse/ .

I can't find anything about these in the documentation. Maybe this is
the missing part from my setup.


I have the very same problem as Roland:

http://gluster.org/pipermail/gluster-users/2010-January/003731.html

I've set up 3.0.2 on freshly installed and updated CentOS 5.4  boxes
based on this doc: http://ewan.to/post/278951058/gluster-replication

I found that 'ls -lR' works to enforce the sync as long as the bottom
part of the client config is deleted (everything below the mirror).

I know about guys who made glusterfs 3.0 afr working as expected
(background self healing) on Debian. I'm wondering what
service/package/patch missing from CentOS to make it work.


Does anyone running GlusterFS 3.0.x on CentOS/Redhat with tested
background self-healing?
Is there any way to monitor the self-healing process?


Thanks,

miloska
