Can't install s3fs-fuse(yum fuse-devel version issue) and can't install libfuse(./config missing issue)

I am trying to get s3fsfuse installed on my Docker container. Here is my Dockerfile so far.

FROM    centos:centos6

RUN yum -y update; yum clean all; \
    yum groupinstall -y "Web Server" "MySQL Database" "PHP Support"; \
    service httpd start; \
    chkconfig httpd on;

RUN yum install -y openssh; \
    yum install -y openssh-clients;

ADD ssh/ /root/.ssh/

RUN chmod 600 /root/.ssh/*; \
    touch /root/.ssh/known_hosts; \
    ssh-keyscan >> /root/.ssh/known_hosts;

RUN yum install -y git;

RUN yum install -y autoconf libtool gcc libstdc++-devel curl-devel mailcap; \
    yum install -y automake fuse-devel gcc-c++ git libcurl-devel libxml2-devel make openssl-devel; 

Then after following the instructions at I perform the following commands:

  • How to send to stdin of a docker-py container?
  • RSelenium on docker: where are files downloaded?
  • How to get the IP address of the docker host from inside a docker container
  • How to view netstat of a container within another container?
  • Invalid Message Format on Postgresql using Docker
  • Running a docker image in Openshift Origin
  • git clone
    cd s3fs-fuse

    Then I get this:

    checking s3fs build with NSS... no
    checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
    checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
    checking for common_lib_checking... configure: error: Package requirements (fuse >= 2.8.4 libcurl >= 7.0 libxml-2.0 >= 2.6) were not met:
    Requested 'fuse >= 2.8.4' but version of fuse is 2.8.3
    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.
    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables common_lib_checking_CFLAGS
    and common_lib_checking_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.

    So, I presume I need to get the right fuse version as yum fuse-devel isn’t cutting it. So I go to and follow the instructions there with do the following:

    git clone;
    cd libfuse;

    Then I get this issue:

    bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

    I have been all around the internet and have tried the whole autoconf and autoreconf -i thing that lead to m4 directory missing errors. I have also tried adding the --prefix=/your/chosen/directory to the ./configure --prefix=/your/chosen/directory command that lead me no where. No luck with a super sad face.

  • SSH from Docker image using Drone
  • docker-compose is not setting container_name from environment variable
  • Can not start docker on lubuntu “cannot start container: exec format error”
  • Docker: how do I make a DNS entry for a not yet started container available in another container
  • Docker: Run command while another command is running
  • Docker Django could not connect to server: Connection refused
  • One Solution collect form web for “Can't install s3fs-fuse(yum fuse-devel version issue) and can't install libfuse(./config missing issue)”

    Run in your libfuse clone which creates configure.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
