    Default Mounting a smb share on the ATV

    I've been trying to get the mount_smbfs to work to mount one of my windows shares.
    I've copied an 10.4.8 smbfs.kext to the aTV and repaired it's permissions and give it the right owner and rights, after removing the extensions.mkext and extensions.kextcache i've rebooted the atv. When i try to mount a windows share i get the following error:

    sudo mount_smbfs -W mydomain \\computer\movies -U user
    /mach: No such file or directory
    Can't open /mach for reading - No such file or directory
    kextload: can't map module files
    kextload: can't check load addresses of modules
    kextload: a link/load error occured for kernel extension /System/Library/Extensions/smbfs.kext
    mount_smbfs: SMB filesystem is not available

    Any suggestions or tips to get this working?

    Ok, ik got rid of the mach errors. I needed to mount the file system as read write at boot.(touch .readwrite)

    Now i just need to get this kext to load in.

    Thanks for the info. I already checked those links on awkward tv, i guess we need to get a compatible smbfs.kext for this to work. I'm going to try to build a new smbfs.kext, then it should work

    Unless it's disabled in the aTV kernel somehow, but i don't know if that's possible.. Im new to this kext thing.

    Hmm, i've booked 0% progress so far.

    It seems to me that the extension has to be adressed in the kernel, but i guess there is no smb support in the current aTV kernel. Can somebody shed a light on this?

    Now we have good news on .kext loading - mount_smbfs works now:

    Thanks to Turbo it's quite simple to load .kexts:
