Hi, I had no idea where to post this so I apologize if this is wrong.

 

When I open a terminal on my fully rooted10b g2 (thanks finless) I see a fairly standard linux filesystem however when I open the filemanager on the tablet I can't seem to figure out where/what it's looking at.

The real reason I'm trying to do this is I have a samba server that has all my mp3's, videos and ebooks on it and would like to be able access those from my tablet. 

Some locations i've created like the /sdcard/media (which I can find in both)  tell me that they are read-only when I try to mount the share there, even though the app (mount manager) pops up the request for root & I grant it.

 

Other locations i tried to mount it (/mnt/sharedmedia) I cant find in the filemanager.

 

Anyone have any clues for me?

Thanks

Regarding mounting Samba shares, this forum thread talks about a working cifs module that should help:

You also have the option to use Astro with its SMB support addon, or other Apps such as FileExpert, not test though.

The built in file browser has a lot of restrictions in what it can see.  It seems to actually be programmed to give you a file view a certain way and not the way you would think it should.

Also one thing that will confuse you with any of these is the /sdcard.  Threw me for a loop at first.  If using a root file explorer like ES or Root file explorer, when you look in the /sdcard directory you will see files in there that are BOTH on the physical SD card as well as the /sdcard directory that is in the Anrova's built in memory.

For example.  Unplug the SD Card and leave it out.  Now install an app or something.  Look in /sdcard and you will see some files in there.  Of course they are not really on the SD card because there is no SD card.  Now put some files on your actual SD card using your PC.  Plug the SD Card in the Arnova.  Now go look in /sdcard.  Both sets of files shows up!

So the thing to remember here is if you see files in /sdcard yet you do not see them on your physical SD card, they are in the built in memory of the Arnova's /sdcard directory.  Again that really messed with my mind at one point when I was trying to get rid of some files on my SD card and could not find them on the actual card!
