Samba & Windows 8.1 Pro

Post by apoklyps3 »

Just rooted my 40F6400 today and I wanted to mount a folder from my PC where i could record over the network (virtual USB).
Using trial & error i wanted to mount folder named "record" from my C drive (NTFS formatted) and addapted the 04_04_samba.init to my needs but it doesn't work.
Nothing mounted.
Any clues what might be wrong?

i`ve heard that samba won`t mount win8 shares by default. I guess it`s because some win8 related network settings.

You have to continue your trial & error and troubleshoot issue. For example, you could check what happening if you enter commands one by one in telnet.

e.g.

Code: Select all

source /dtv/SGO.env
mkdir /dtv/usb/sda1/samba
busybox mount -t cifs -o username=sambauser,password=sambapassword,ro //windows_PC_IP/sambashare /dtv/usb/sda1/samba
dmesg | tail

doesn't work...

Code: Select all

VDLinux#> source /dtv/SGO.env
VDLinux#> mkdir /dtv/usb/sda1/samba
mkdir: can't create directory '/dtv/usb/sda1/samba': No such file or directory

you should know, that this is just example... /dtv/usb/sda1 is mount point of real USB. If you use vusb, most probably it will be mounted as /dtv/usb/sda
Check exact path by command

Code: Select all

mount | grep sd*
p.s. Read this, maybe on win8 you have to do smth similar

can't really understand what I am doing wrong...
mount: mounting //192.168.0.196/record on /dtv/usb/sda failed: No such device
same mount was succesfuly mounted on via telnet on my enigma2 reciever box.

P.S. : Is it safe to mess with /etc/fstab?
I have better experience with it as i use it on my enigma reciever too...

mount not on root of usb (/dtv/usb/sda), but on some subdirectory.
After mount command check the output to
dmesg | tail
this is debug information which may help to understand what`s wrong. Don`t touch /etc/fstab (it is read only anyway)

it's impossible to mount anywere. I have created a folder named "record" inside mtd_rwcommon.

Code: Select all

busybox mount -t cifs -o user=********,password=*******,ro //192.168.0.196/record /mtd_rwcommon/record
mount: mounting //192.168.0.196/record on /mtd_rwcommon/record failed: No such device

maybe we don't understand each other...i don't understand what I didn't do in conformity with you request.
if you are asking about "dmesg | tail", i thought it wasn't necesary since the mount failed. but here it is :
