Davfs on almalinux 9

i would mount remote webdav on my almalinux 9
on almalinux 8 i run

yum install epel-release -y && yum install davfs2 -y
then i can
mount -t davfs -o noexec …

but in almalinux 9 i can’t find package davfs2
No match for argument: davfs2
Error: Unable to find a match: davfs2

how i can mount webdav folder on almalinux 9?
thank you in advance

wow, didn’t think people used davfs anymore!

looks like you’ll have to ask the EPEL folks to make a v9 package, or rebuild it yourself:


ok thank you
i would mount my owncloud (webdav) on my almalinux 9.

i check your link , thank you again

the fedora 38 srpm seems to rebuild just fine on alma 9.1:

sudo dnf --enablerepo=crb install -y neon-devel

curl -O https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/davfs2/1.7.0/1.fc38/src/davfs2-1.7.0-1.fc38.src.rpm

rpmbuild --rebuild davfs2-1.7.0-1.fc38.src.rpm

i then have an ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/davfs2-1.7.0-1.el9.x86_64.rpm that when installed gives me a mount.davfs command.

looks like the problem with epel is that the el8 version is using neon v1.5.6 which wants neon-devel v0.30 but alma9 ships v0.31

you can also build the rawhide version 1.7.0 from source using:

sudo dnf -y install rpmdevtools
git clone https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/davfs2.git
cd davfs2
spectool -gR davfs2.spec 
cp davfs2-memberlist-gpgkeys.asc ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/
rpmbuild -bb davfs2.spec

ok big thank you for reply
