    need help with smbmount

    so i did get smbfs-2.0.1.o to load (ignoring the versioning error) on my 3.1.0 dtivo.

    but the smbmount command is giving me a "device or resource busy" error

    i'm typing this as the command:

    # smbmount // /srvr_mt -U tivo -P tivo is my server and /music is a share i have on that server

    /srvr_mt is an empty directory i created on my tivo

    and i created an account tivo with a password of tivo on my server to connect to

    please help if you can, i'm sure there is a common mistake i'm missing but i'm very new to the whole "mounting" protocol

    here, there, everywhere
    smbmount //trash/CDRIVE /mnt/windows/ -I -P welcome

    above is the command I've used in the past.

    trash is the name of my windows box
    CDRIVE is the share
    /mnt/windows is the area on the tivo is the IP address of my windows box

    hope this helps. most people don't have too much luck w/ samba. It disconnects a lot. you may want to look into an nfs solution.

    smbmount 'succeeds' but dir is empty

    Sony SVR-2000 running 3.0

    insmod -f /lib/smbfs-2.0.1.o
    mkdir /var/hack/mp3
    smbmount //cartman/mp3 /var/hack/mp3 -I -U tivo -P tivo

    I get the expected kernel mismatch on the insmod.
    smbmount seems to work - at least I don't get any errors.
    When I try to do an ls of the mounted directory, the first time it takes almost 1 minute and returns an empty directory.
    (none):/var/hack$dir mp3
    total 3
    drwxr-xr-x 1 0 0 512 Jan 1 1970 .
    drwxr-xr-x 16 0 0 2048 Jun 15 05:51 ..

    I know TiVo can get to my pc
    PING ( 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=128 time=1.029 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=0.620 ms

    Is there anything obvious that I am missing?
