Is CIFSManager possible (any ROM/Kernel)?

    I'm trying to mount shares cuz my stuff's on a windows domain, and requires user, pass, and domain name. XBMC's built-in SMB doesn't play so nice with that (I've spent countless hours, and am quite familiar with how to appropriately name the share paths). Sometimes they work, sometimes not.

    CIFS, however, is easier and more reliable. Hoping to figure out how to get it working on the Sequent! Any ideas or suggestions? Anyone know what the heck cifs.ko is or which one i need on the sequent? i'm so lost on linux lol

    dont know about a manager but yes CIFS support can be built into the kernel. ;)

    I'm reading up on it, as much as i can understand, and it looks like the [android] linux kernel just doesn't come with it, but it's a module that can be added.

    however, the module has to be compiled specifically for your kernel i guess? can't find a cifs.ko for the sequent :( and i sure won't be trying to make one, i scarcely understand what a kernel is lol

    Yea, just needs enabled in the defconfig and recompiled and the new module tossed into lib/modules. ;)

    is there any way to manually get the modules and add them to system/lib/modules? I ummm....i tried throwing in the cifs.ko and md4.ko modules from an Asus TP forum....no luck. Hey, it's ICS, i thought i'd at least try lol

    need to be compiled with/for same kernel version and has to be enabled in the kernel for support. ;)

    I will try to compile on tonight. ;)

    Hi PlayfulGod!
    I've a brand new Oppo Find 5 in witch I've put a ROM ([Find5][4.2.2]ALL in 1 PAC 22.3 Nightlies [CM][PA][AOKP]) that doesn't have CIFS support.
    Can you point me the right direction to add CIFS support or is a difficult process to achieve?
    By what you have said, it must use the same kernel as my ROM, so the patch that you have made will not work or I'm get it all wrong?
    Thank you in advance! :)

    Is this why my phone doesn't register on my Linux PC? I can't transfer a dang thing from my phone to PC or vice versa:what:

    that would be mtp. ubuntu supports mtp as of 13.04 and mint supports it as of 15.

    edit: I use Samba on Ubuntu, and ES File Explorer on Android to transfer files back and forth. Wireless ;)

    What do I install and HOW on Linux 14 to read my phone/mem card? I tried the installer built into my phone (connect to PC as an installer) but it kicked my butt due to lack of experience & knowledge of Linux
    I have no choice at this time but to USB connect

    Well, to be honest the easiest thing would be upgrade to Mint 15 if you are currently on Mint 14. Mint 15 has MTP support out of the box. There are tutorials out there to get MTP working with lower versions of Ubuntu based distros, but I never use MTP. I can tell you this...when I connect my warp2 to Ubuntu 13.04 and Mint 15 via usb my Card and Phone pop up in Nautilus ;)

    I read somewhere that there were unnecessary building errors caused from mint 15... That's why I didn't install that one. ...Opinions-Facts? :confused:

    I have not built anything with Mint 15, but Ubuntu 13.04 builds fine so I would be surprised if Mint is any different. It is basically just themed/customized Ubuntu.

    I use mint 15 to build... ive tested both its capacity to run a build and access mtp devices with no problems at all

    yes typing is typing. and i do my best typing focused on something else. Watching a video, anything to keep my eyes from the keyboard so I can feel the mistype.

    And you know exactly wtf I'm talking about right now. .:smokingsomb:
