Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've been using the same fstab command for a while now:

sshfs#user@host.be:/home/user /home/user/vps fuse user,port=22,uid=1000,gid=1000,allow_other,reconnect,transform_symlinks 0 0

And it used to work fine.

But on 11.10 it doesn't transform symlinks anymore, they're all reported as broken, even though the option is clearly set. What gives?

maybe this could help: cse.iitk.ac.in/users/ppk/writings/security/sshfs.html and take a look of this cse.iitk.ac.in/users/ppk/writings/security/sshfs.html/ssh.html When I try the fuse at the end get "fuse: invalid argument `fuse'". hope this could help a little. =D –  maniat1k Nov 3 '11 at 12:47

The option 'transform_symlinks' does not work anymore, you need 'follow_symlinks' instead.
