Notes on adding the Fuse Cartridge using RPM.

Fuse can be used on OpenShift using the Fuse Cartridge, the code for which can be found on github: During the setup phase of a Fuse based application on OpenShift it downloads a big zipfile. I've been working on an rpm that includes the zip file to avoid this big download, to shorten the application setup and so it doesn't depend on a network connection to the outside.

At the moment the rpm is build from the openshift-enterprise-rpm-6.1 branch, and the finished product is placed in nexus.

If you want to build the rpm by hand use 'rpmdev-setuptree', copy the zip to ~/rpmbuild/SOURCE (this needs to be the cartridge zip containing the, copy the spec file to rpmbuild/SPEC and then build the rpm using 'rpmbuild -ba openshift-origin-cartridge-fuse.spec'.

Next copy the rpm to your OpenShift node and install it using rpm -U , and once it's done restart the
ruby193-mcollective service on node and import cartridge on broker 
 #oo-admin-ctl-cartridge -c import-node --obsolete  --activate 
You can check fuse cartridge is listed by rhc cartridge-list. Note that I only found the oo-admin-ctl-cartridge command on OpenShift Enterprise and not on Origin.

At this point the Fuse application should also be listed on the application page.

You can create a new gear from there or you can use rhc:
rhc app create fuse fuse -g medium
It should now have created a running Fuse gear. Please note that on my little laptop it took roughtly 15 minutes for it to show up and rhc and the console were sort of in a frozen state.
