[Q] How MK808 to be NFS client ?

Postby chancechen » Tue Jan 01, 2013 1:45 pm

It seems like this android 4.1.1 doesn't support NFS file systems.
(check by 'cat /proc/filesystems')
I want my MK808 to be NFS client , to mount the NAS on network.
CIFS is working, but CIFS got 'wrong wording' issue when double-byte font be used (ex. chinese word).

It seems like I need 'nfs.ko' , 'lockd.ko' , 'sunrpc.ko' these files for insmod,
Anybody have idea about that ?

Thanks.

XBMC has SMB support, entirely different from NFS.

Actually XBMC supports client functionality for both SMB as well as NFS. XBMC NFS works great on Android with beta 3 builds and newer.

did you have to do any special configuration in xbmc to get nfs working?

i have xbmc for android from here: http://www.xbmcandroid.com/2013/01/17/i ... must-have/

whenever i click on nfs, i get the icon that says it's working for about 3 seconds then it disappears...nothing happens.

i have my nfs server exports file saying this:

Code: Select all

/mnt/ 192.168.0.1/24(rw,sync,fsid=0,no_subtree_check,all_squash)
/mnt/usb1 192.168.0.1/24(rw,sync,no_subtree_check,all_squash)
/mnt/usb2 192.168.0.1/24(rw,sync,no_subtree_check,all_squash)
/mnt/usb3 192.168.0.1/24(rw,sync,no_subtree_check,all_squash)


Code: Select all

[root@server ~]# showmount -e
Export list for server:
/mnt/usb3 192.168.0.1/24
/mnt/usb2 192.168.0.1/24
/mnt/usb1 192.168.0.1/24
/mnt      192.168.0.1/24


i have an ubuntu box that can see the nfs shares without a problem, but the mk808 with xbmc doesn't.

Possible that it's a UID problem. NFS authentication is handled by UID. And in Android each app has its own UID (rather than each user, as is the case in Linux). So you need to determine the UID of XBMC. I did this with a free app called Quick System Info. It gave me the UID of XBMC, then I created a user on my NFS server (which is Windows domain server) with that UID and everything started working. Good luck.

would it be possible to post yours? i tried out the quick system info, added in the uid for xbmc, but i'm still havign the same problem.

i want to see a working one that i can just modify to fit my system and see what's wrong.

I don't know if it'll help because XBMC seems to have different UID's on different devices.

I have two Android devices running the Frodo stable release build. The first is an HP Touchpad, which runs with UID 10086, and the other is an MK808B which runs with 10061. I've also read that a UNIX NFS server needs to be configured with the insecure flag. My NFS server is Windows, so it's a whole different thing. But I definitely did need to create users on that box with those UID's, otherwise XBMC would not navigate the shares.

I didn't need to create users on my Debian Server. I never tested it with the MK808 but with the GK802 and Mede8er - I used the option "no_root_squash" to not translate the root user to nobody in the exports so it was working with busybox (never tried it through XBMC - here I'm using SMB)

Hi I am in the same situation. I have NFS exports from my NAS. I am able to mount it on my WDTV live without issues.

But NFS mount on MK808 fails. Any idea how to get NFS file system support with MK808.
benchmark on WDTV reveals NFS streams at 70 Mbps while SBM or CIFS does only 27-30 Mbps .
Making NFS work in MK808 will be huge for me as I can keep aside my WDTV. At this point the only way to stream my 30GB BluRay rips over Wifi is through WDTV through NFS.

Please someone help.

Hi!
I´m also looking at trying to get my mk808 map my NFS shares on my Syno NAS. Cifs works but then my 1080 mp4:s stutter (they work ok to play locally on the device from SD card).
Running Finless 1.7c rom
Any news on this?
