Doesn't work for me either on Centos 5, have to modprobe fuse.

Just setup my first Gluster share (replicated on 3 nodes) and it works fine on RHEL 6 but when trying to mount it on RHEL 5.8 I get the following in my logs:

I installed glusterfs and glusterfs-fuse from http://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/LATEST/RHEL/glusterfs-epel.repo.el5 and got have the following currently:
# rpm -qa |grep -i gluster

Everything I have read online says that I should not have to manually install fuse or manually run modprobe or manually make /dev/fuse so I am lost as to why this is not working.  Any tips on what to do next?
