UBUNTU 16.04 Kernel module CIFS 4.9.40


#1

OS Ubuntu 16.04, Kernel 4.9.40 (20171025)

root@v2001:~# modprobe CIFS
-> modprobe: FATAL: Module CIFS not found in directory /lib/modules/4.9.40

root@v2001:~# apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-$(uname -r)
-> E: Unable to locate package linux-image-4.9.40

root@v2001:~# module-assistant list
-> lists several but doesn’t find any modules

What I’m trying to achieve is to get CIFS working but for as long as the relevant kernel module is missing I do get the response:
-> mount error: cifs filesystem not supported by the system

I wouldn’t want to start over again from scratch and compiling -> installing smbclient or cifs-utils doesn’t solve the problem either.

Qualified help would be much apreshiated.


#2

Please try V180531 with CIFS enabled.

Thanks.


#3

Yes, obviously that’s the only way, starting over from scratch and hope that this doesn’t miss any basic funktion.
It’s not what I was looking for but anyway, many thanks for your advise.


#4

The image you’ve mentioned has VIM1 in it’s name, so I’ve used:
VIM2_Ubuntu-server-xenial_Linux-4.9_arm64_EMMC_2018-07-12.7z
but that image is doesn’t have CIFS either, different modules are missing
Isn’t there any images that really works?


#5

CIFS is built in kernel, not built as module, so you don’t need to modprobe XXX.

Can you tell me what you want to do? And your steps? I tried V180531, and I can mount successfully.

khadas@Khadas:~$ sudo mount -t cifs -o username=XXX,password=XXX //192.168.XX.XX/wesion  /mnt

Thanks.

I’ve tried all Ubuntu images that I could find.
Summary: All 4.x Images/Updates miss some function that I need. Mostly CIFS in general or version of CIFS 2 or 3, others have no ZRAM module.
I’m using now kernel 3.14.29 which seems to have all required modules but crashes. I assume there are heating problems…
Furthermore, the LAN-, USB-, SDCard-speed is to slow for my purposes.
I wanted to use this device as an NGINX webserver with POSTGRESQL, PHP7.2 and NEXTCLOUD accessing my files on my NAS and I’m close to give it up.


#7

V180531 4.9 kernel CIFS and ZRAM are all enabled.

VIM1 ethernet is 100Mbps, VIM2 is 1000Mbps.
