ExtFS

ExtFS

Introduction

AVFS comes with builtin support for many archives but new filesystems can be dynamically added by using the extfs extension (the same as in MC). This page lists additional extfs drivers not included in the AVFS package. Although this page is about AVFS the drivers can also be used for the extfs in MC.

Installation

To install an additional extfs driver:
  1. Download the shell script.
  2. Copy it to the extfs directory (ususally /usr/local/lib/avfs/extfs or similar locations).
    Don't forget to make the script executable (something like chmod +x <file name>).
  3. Register the driver in the file extfs.ini in the same directory by adding a new line containing at least the name of the shell script.
    Optionally you can add a list (separated by spaces) of file extensions for this driver. Doing this allows AVFS to automatically use the right handler if archives are accessed by using just a # character.
  4. Restart the application which uses AVFS or remount AVFS-FUSE.
