Linux : CIFS module for linksys E4200 (candyhouse) debian kernel
As an owner of the excellent Linksys (Cisco) E4200 router, I use a Debian Linux distribution on it (more info on http://www.wolfteck.com/projects/candyhouse/).
Unfortunately, the given 3.13.7 kernel does not provide cifs module to mount SMB share. As I need it to for my automated monthly backup, I compiled it myself : you can find it in the download section of this post.
How to use it (well if you read this post you probably know how to…):
- create the dir /lib/modules/3.13.7/kernel/fs/cifs
- unzip and copy cifs.ko in this directory
- add module with insmod (insmod /lib/modules/3.13.7/kernel/fs/cifs/cifs.ko
Beware, to use it you need to install cifs-utils (eg: apt-get install cifs-utils)
