Hello there,

I'm looking for a way to mount nfs shares of my NAS and (debian wheezy) server in the filesystem for access of my media files.
I thought for long that it would be the most natural thing to do for my (linux based) mobile devices in a linux server environment, but it seems I'm far off.

So far I have been unable to mount these nfs shares of mine to the Nexus 7 (grouper) device running a Carbon ROM 4.4.2 Nightly Build from march this year (CARBON...20140302-0433.zip) with CifsManager, most likely due to its lack of kernel support (version 3.1.10--g90cc2cb1 bigshotrob...).

May one of you recommend a kernel that supports nfs, cifs and utf-8 for this build? I restrain from updating it as it is running smoothly and without problems (Remember? Never change a...) and I don't like to invest much time for the reconfiguration and other related stuff.

I know there is M-Kernel (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2168787) out there that claims to have exactly the requested support and compliance to the CarbonROM series. But I'm unable to sort out what version of the kernel would match my build of the ROM.
I understand that the most actual release is for versions 4.4.4, but the changelog and >200 posts I've browsed do give no hint which release was compiled for 4.4.2 ROMs.
Please note, I would ask directly in that respective thread in the development section if I could, but owing to the (imho pretty stupid) 10 post restriction of newcomers I am unable to post there.

Edit:
Not necessary anymore, got my postings ...
Accordingly, my second question would be, if someone with more than 10 posts would be so kind and ask the following questions for me in the given thread?
Namely:
What version of the kernel would fit my 4.4.2 CarbonROM Build and where could I obtain it?
Does anyone had success to mount nfs shares with it (or cifs, if not) ?
Edit end

That and any alternative ways/hints to get nfs going would be highly appreciated!
Thank you very much,
Nix

Simple. Give my kernel a shot. It uses an AnyKernel installer, which then works with both ext4/f2fs ROMs. If you don't want experimental dt2w/s2w, flash 1.6.1.

Thank you for the reply snuzzo,

would you mind to give some details where to learn more of its features and where to find it?
Then I'll have a look at it.

EDIT:
Thanks for the link! But exactly what version do I have download for my Carbon ROM build above, if I'd decide to use it that is?
Presumably .../kitkat/Funky...??

BTW, are there some feature lists or such things? I'll probably browse the forum a bit, I suppose?

Cheers, Nix

Anykernel Installer. You can flash it on either an ext4/f2fs rom for /data compatibility
Overclock with 1.3Ghz max default
Under/overvolt
IO Scheduler additions: SIO BFQ ROW
CPU Governor additions: Lazy Lagfree Scary Lulzactive Wheatley (could be few more but thats from memory)
DoubleTap2Wake/Sweep2Wake in 1.6.2, disabled in 1.6.1(experimental)
Kexec Hardboot for MultiRom
Dynamic Fsync Control
Stock Google 4.7GCC prebuilt toolchain.
CIFS.

Theres a few other tweaks I made for overall UI performance other than that it follows CM-11.0 source. I build these for my own personal use but upload to share them for those who want what I run. You will want 1.6.2 or 1.6.1.

Sounds great, although most of it are books with seven seals for me
What about nfs support? And its definitely for 4.4.2 based ROMs?

Thx again,
Nix

One more question, please - do I have to activate or load those modules manually or will they be loaded at bootup by default?
Where may I find them to insmod/modprobe them manually, if not?

Thanks for the help once more,

Cheerio,
Nix
