Hello everyone,

I have a question or more precisely a problem. I am trying to
mount a GlusterFS volume on a client computer as non-root user, but
without success.

The client computer uses Ubuntu 11.10, the glusterfs-client and
glusterfs-common packages are installed, also the fuse-utils package
and fuse module is loaded. The non-root user was also added to the
group fuse.

Mounting the GlusterFS volume with root permissions (sudo) everything
works fine:
$ sudo mount.glusterfs /media/gluster 

Log file: 

Using the same command without sudo I am not able to mount the volume: 
$ mount.glusterfs /media/gluster 

Log file: 

Should it be possible to mount a GlusterFS volume as non-root user or
am I trying something totally senseless?

Thanks a lot in advance!
