Amazon S3

I'm running an instance of CentOS and trying to mount an S3 store as a volume. I'm trying to use s3fs and I don't get an error, but it doesn't mount the volume.

Has anyone else tried this?

Yes, I did install s3fs on my CentOs 5.3 64 bit and its working like a charm. Make sure you have all dependencies installed via yum (yum install libxml2 libxml2-devel fuse fuse-devel and probably some others) and you have no errors compiling s3fs.

Yep, I installed all those packages and it compiles successfully- but with a warning. When I attempt to mount a bucket, nothing happens. It shows up in the process list as running.
