Subject description: I can do smb already
 

cifs appears to be the future

My debian install has a cifs.ko at about 200k, smbmount in puppy is 800k so it looks like cifs would save some space.

If it simply a case of building the module and dropping it I wonder if anyone out there with a kernel build environment would be willing to oblige.

some reading
http://osdir.com/ml/linux.file-systems.cifs/2005-06/msg00002.html

I've never done kernel/module compiling before. Should no-one respond I'm sure I'll get there.........slowly.

Would cifs also be capable of reading from/writing to a CD/DVD-RW like it can be done with UDF?

CIFS is usually used as a replacement for the samba-client to connect to Windows-based computers over a network. Windows itself offers SMB and CIFS, so both attempts should work.

Windows Server 2003 has some encryption options that make connections to such servers very hard - I do not have enough knowlegde to say, whether this problems can be solved or not.

Hey HW,

Just for kicks I grabbed the "kernel-src_301.sfs) several days ago, and ran a re-compile using the included ".config" file, and it produced all the modules, those that do/don't come w normal puppy.

The standard puppy install is missing several modules that I use regularly...cifs, hwmon, and some i2c stuff, that has forced me to use the 2.6.18.1 kernel/modules from puppy-2.15ce, but now, am able to use the 2.6.21.7 kernel w any module I please.

Borrowed a "/sbin/mount.cifs" executeable from a debian distro, loaded the proper module, pulled up rxvt, plugged in a few commands, and was accessing window shares, no sweat.

Just wanted folks aware that modules are available for puppy, at least the puppy-301.

black,
Thanks for that, this was what I was hoping. How big is the module? This can be put in the zdrv and smbmount should no longer be necessary in pup_xxx.sfs. I will ask Barry to include it in the next dingo alpha.

Hey HW,

Module is 269 kb...yeah, I know, 200 k bigger than smbfs, but worth the better/easier (my feeling) win access.

cheers,

cheers
