On qole's fine site, I've seen cifs.ko for N900. Was it ever available for the N8*0?

Wow. I thought that was for Diablo OS, not Easy Debian OS.

I already have cifs.ko in /lib/modules/2.6.21-omap1/extras

Do I start lxde, go to /lib/modules and paste the same cifs.ko there?

And which command activates it--modprobe or insmod?

Many thanks for such fast help,
Jake

Ah..
now you got me there...
with easy deb on n8x0 and cifs.ko I haven't messed around with...
someone far far more knowledgeable than me concerning easy deb and cifs.ko's interaction is needed from here on out...

Sorry man I can take you to that proverbial bridge...but base-jumping from it is a step I myself haven't done yet .
I'm keen to hear the how, why, what, and where though.

In Easy Debian, there are no modules at all in /lib/modules.

I scoured the forums but haven't come up with anything. As you say, we'll have to wait for the answer.

i'm pretty sure that, since easy debian doesn't "install" debian on the device, but only chroots into a mounted image, it doesn't have it's own kernel, let alone modules. and even if it had, they wouldn't be used, same with the init system. it merely uses the underlying maemo (still linux); you can think of it as of (maemo kernel + debian userspace), even if it's not 100% correct. if you have ever used chroots you would be familiar with this stuff, but anyway just put that module into diablo and modprobe it, then chroot into debian.

EDIT: also, use modprobe unless you know what you're doing, since insmod DOESN'T handle modules dependencies, and you might run into funny stuff

You indeed put me on the right track. With cifs.ko insmod-ed in maemo, debian chroot will allow the mounting.

I was hoping to avoid the ip address (I don't have a static) and go with the hostname. That does not work (smbfs) and though I've updated pcmanfm to 0.9.7, I *should* be able to "smb://hostname/shared_folded" but I'm getting an "operation not supported"

I installed Thunar 1.0.2 but can't figure out how to install the samba plugin ("thunar-shares-plugin")

Thanks again for the heads-up,
Jake

well there you go jake.. almost there.
Interesting ...
Me on my n8x0's ...I've used easy deb, easy mer, jaunty (buntu), deblet, kde, xfce, all kinds of d.e.'s ....done lots with all kinds of stuff inside 'em....but I never really messed with stuff unless I found documentation...I like a map ...and unless there was a how-to in altering something...I either asked or pretty much left whatever it was alone. Doesn't mean I didn't mess with other sorts of stuff ...it's just I try to limit my reckless abandon or I'm sure I'd end up doing something that would make my precious beasties explode.

And yea...u7knv9h is pretty much right...chroot's run on top of the system.
hm...actually yea..
hummity-humhum...that's chroots we're talkin' 'bout.
here is an idea.
what about deblet?

http://web.archive.org/web/200902210...rtheNokiaN8x0s

It isn't a chroot. It is deb proper...well hm...might be a trick getting it to run...it has been abandoned for a while now...
I'm sure there are other options though...
But it would involve installing a distro.
there is funtoo, gentoo ...gentoo s'pos'd to work...funtoo has been mentioned recently to work..but they are beastly to do.
I'm sure there must be a couple that will work...

mh, i don't know exactly about thunar and pcmanfm (i don't use any file manager on my machines, always commandline tools) but maybe they require some packages, like 'gvfs' 'fuse-utils' 'gvfs-backends'
also, try starting pcmanfm from the terminal, and see if when you try to access this samba share you get any error in the terminal
you can use the local ip if you're in the same network, but the hostname should also work

another possibility is that pcmanfm was compiled without samba support, even though i somehow doubt that the debian folks would do that, but it's possible. in that case you would have to recompile it by yourself; but first try troubleshooting it using the terminal as described before

Thanks again for the tips. I checked those .debs you cited and they are indeed installed. I think the trouble is that pcmanfm 0.9.7 is buggy, and 0.9.10 in squeeze won't install (is squeeze armel incompatible with "easy debian"?).

That "operation not supported" error appears to be endemic to 0.9.* (though samba success is cited with 0.9.10). Samba's there, pcmanfm just won't play nice (I think it's a libfm problem).
