Mounting Samba Shares

Discussion created by Dejan Deletic on Aug 7, 2012

I'm running the Ubuntu from the SD card delivered with the i.MX53 QSB (i.e. Lucid, kernel version 


I cannot mount samba shares from command line. No problem accessing same shares from nautilus (file manager). 

ddd@iMX53:~$ sudo mount.cifs // /mnt/netdrv/
[sudo] password for ddd:
mount error: cifs filesystem not supported by the system
mount error(19): No such device
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

It appears cifs kernel module is missing

ddd@iMX53:~$ sudo modprobe fuse
FATAL: Module fuse not found.

ddd@iMX53:~$ ll /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/fs
total 8.0K
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K 2011-10-07 05:21 autofs4/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K 2011-10-07 05:21 nls/


Has anyone come across this issue? I'd expect to see cifs.ko in '.../kernel/fs' directory. How can I add this module?
