    79 There are currently three major forks of the deceased MacFUSE: [http://fuse4x.org/ Fuse4X], [http://osxfuse.github.com/ OSXFUSE], and [https://github.com/tuxera/macfuse Tuxera]. Fuse4X has the advantage of compatibility with the [http://fuse.sourceforge.net/ upstream FUSE project], meaning that existing FUSE filesystems (such as sshfs) do not require patching in order to work. Fuse4X ([https://github.com/downloads/fuse4x/fuse4x/Fuse4X-0.8.14.pkg v0.8.14]) along with sshfs ([https://github.com/fuse4x/sshfs/zipball/master v2.3.0]) have been tested and confirmed to work on Lion (Mac OS X 10.7) - results for older versions of OS X would be appreciated.

    81 The Tuxera fork (v2.2.1) does not work with Tahoe-LAFS, possibly due to issue (2) in [http://osdir.com/ml/macfuse/2011-08/msg00052.html this post]. OSXFUSE has not been tested.

     83OSXFUSE seems to work less well -- tarcieri on IRC reported: "last time I tried to use OSXFUSE with Tahoe+sshfs it just wigged out and crashed and unmounted the volume whenever I tried to read a file."

    8385If for legacy support reasons you wish to use MacFUSE - development of which stalled at version 2.0.3 - you will need to use the patched sshfs included with the download. Version 2.0.3 ''does'' work on Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5.8). On Snow Leopard and Lion it might work if you use a 32-bit kernel (but this has not been tested).
