CIFS mounts

You can mount a CIFS or SAMBA share easily on your 7501.  It will show up when you run the commands mount  and df -h.  We assume that you have some other computer that has a CIFS or SAMBA share that you know a username (davygravy) and password (mashedpotatoes) for.

Use the cifs.ko module that is already included in Lemonade at 
/var/usb_mount/opt/lib/modules/2.6.8.1/kernel/fs/cifs/cifs.ko


Via telnet, login and then cd to the directory containing that kernel module.

Load the module and check to see that it loaded correctly:
c/var/usb_mount/opt/lib/modules/2.6.8.1/kernel/fs/cifs/
insmod cifs.ko
lsmod | grep cifs
cifs 258320 1 - Live 0xc01b8000
nls_base 6752 5 cifs,vfat,nls_iso8859_1,nls_cp437,fat, Live 0xc004d000


Create a mount point directory, say, at /var/usb_mount/share/mtpt:
    mkdir -p /var/usb_mount/share/mtpt

Mount the share on your 7501 (this is intended to be one contiguous line):
mount -t cifs //192.168.11.5/airdisk  /var/usb_mount/share/mtpt/ -o rw,username=davygravy,password=mashedpotatoes


mount and df -h show the following:
# mount
/dev/root on / type squashfs (ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,nodiratime)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)
tmpfs on /var type tmpfs (rw)
none on /WFIO type ffs (rw,noatime,noexec)
none on /var/sys type sysfs (rw)
/var/dev/sda1 on /var/usb_mount type vfat (rw,nodiratime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022)
//192.168.11.5/airdisk on /var/usb_mount/share/mtpt type cifs (rw,nodiratime,unc=\\192.168.11.
\airdisk,username=davygravy,domain=,rsize=16384,wsize=16384)
