Upgrading to a new OSXFUSE version

If you have an old OSXFUSE version already running on your machine and are upgrading to a new OSXFUSE version, you may encounter the following error:

/Library/Filesystems/osxfuse.fs/Contents/Resources/load_osxfuse' failed to load osxfuse kernel module

To solve this, you can either restart your machine or run the following steps to manually switch to the new OSXFUSE version.

  1. Unmount all your FUSE mounts

  2. Unload the old OSXFUSE

    $ sudo kextunload -b com.github.osxfuse.filesystems.osxfusefs

  3. You can now remount your FUSE filesystems
