Hey, I am here again, with my n00b questions. :-)
I would like to load smbfs support at boot time. How do I achieve it? i cannot even load it after boot, I get this:
# kldload smbfs
kldload: can't load smbfs: Exec format error
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
The error message is not helpful, I think it shares the same error
code as an actually broken module. What you need is to load libiconv
and libmchain. If you like, build a new kernel with these options -
read LINT. I think this is the third identical query in the mailing
What would be very cool is an alternate kernel config which, like
NetBSD's GENERIC, includes all reasonable compatible options and
comments out the possibly dangerous or annoying ones. It sucks a lot
having to merge parts of LINT with GENERIC to make a decent config,
including just adding sound support. But I deeply respect Free/DFly's
strategy of a minimal GENERIC so I wouldn't think to replace that.
Heck I'll do it myself if it's desired... by merely 'include'ing
GENERIC the maintenance required would be pretty small.
