matmunn14: I've tested on a few different systems and haven't seen that behavior. What are the underlying filesystems, what are the mount options you're using?

Is the mhddfs process still running or has it crashed out?

Since upgrading to kernel 4.20 I can't seem to create any new files in the virtual directory. Every operation is just dying with "Input/output error."

I had to install fuse3 as Ownaginatious just to boot but still can't do anything in my filesystem

Ownaginatious: Initially, I couldn't reproduce your problem, because I run mhddfs manually via the command line. Mhddfs itself does not have a dependency on fuse3. However, the "mount.fuse" binary shipped in the fuse-common package seems to be broken at the moment. It links against fuse3, but the package doesn't require its installation. I'm not sure why Arch's fuse maintainer has done it like that, but it seems like a bug.

I started getting boot failures as of kernel linux-4.19.1.arch1-1. From journalctl, it looks like the issue was a missing library: "mount.fuse: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".

I was able to fix it by simply doing: "sudo pacman -S fuse3".

Not sure if this was due to the kernel update or something else; I updated a bunch of packages all at once.

Maybe the fuse dependency should be changed to fuse3?

Thanks for the heads-up, matmunn14. Should be fixed now.

To get this to build I had to update src/tools.c and src/main.c to point to < sys/xattr.h > instead of < xattr/xattr.h >

I can supply patches if needed.

It seems you've delayed the problem with your workaround. I did not have any problems for 2 years and then started extracting a large archive over a network to the same directory i.e. samba was reading a writing at the same time to the same directory when mhddfs segfaulted. It seems it depends on the workload. Anyway, thanks for adding the patch!

Sure, I'll add it. I have the same problem as well - it seems to be caused by mlocate accessing my mhddfs drives while rsync is running, so I worked around it by excluding the mhddfs mount from mlocate. The patch is worth a shot though.

Could you add this patch: As mentioned in this discussion here:

I am having exactly the same problem and the patch seems to have fixed it.

I just noticed that upstream is down. If it stays down for a while longer I'll switch the package to an alternate mirror.
