Adding modules to Ubuntu Core kernel


I have installed the ubuntu 12.04 core kernel and root file system on to a Panda Board ES rev1.

The core kernel/rootfs does not appear to include support for mounting cifs shares. ie. there is no /lib/modules/3.2.0-1411-omap4/kernel/fs/cifs/cifs.ko file. For that matter, the /lib/modules directroy is completely empty - which makes sense for a minial core installation. I have loaded all the relevant samba, cifs-utils, smbfs packages and this has not helped.

The doccument https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Core suggest that "If the Linux kernel requires modules, add these to /lib/modules/$(uname -r) in the ext{2,3,4} file system". The problem is that it does not tell me where to find the module to add nor how to add it. I have been trawling the ubuntu software downlaod site and have had no luck find the cifs.ko module for my current version of ubuntu core (which is 3.2.0-1411-omap4).

I don't doubt that I am missing something very obvious - and would very much appreciate any assistance.

I have a also lodged a question on the ubuntu site https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu...uestion/192875 just in case any detail there is of assistance.


Thanks.

Perhaps you should request this be moved to the "embedded" forum - just click "Report" button on your own post and ask for it to be moved.
I imagine you will need to build the module(s) yourself - cross compile from another system ?. Just guessing as I don't do embedded.

Can't see how to "Report"

Gi'day there,

Happy to move into embedded thread - didn't realise that there was one - just noticed is secreted beneath Linux hardware!

Also - can't see how to "Report" from within my post?

Also - yep - I reckon I may have to recompile the relevant module - exploring that but having a few dramas with it at the moment... thanks.

Regards.
