    kernel 3.8rc6

    How can I tell what options were compiled with the kernel?

    Where can I get the source and some documentation on compiling it?

    Basically I want to see if the SMB 2 protocol kernel support is turned on and if not compile a new kernel with it turned on.

    Thanks!

    You can see the kernel config with:

    Code:
    less /boot/config-`uname -r`
    And to answer your question about SMB2, it looks like it's been enabled:

    Code:
    ...
    CONFIG_CIFS_SMB2=y
    ...

    Thank you pressureman!

    Now my next question is how can I force a linux client to connect to a linux samba share to negotiate at SMB2?
    I have tried with the smb.conf entry "max protocol = SMB2" and am using samba 4 along with the latest kernel = 3.8rc6.

    If i connect to my share using windows 7, it negotiates at SMB2.1.

    When i try to connect from a linux client, it says that option is not available.
    When I remove that statement from my smb.conf, I can connect with the linux client but only at SMB v. 1.


    Thanks!

    Greetings,
    I am running the Mainline version 3.8 RC7. I don't use the repos version. Since this thread is titled "Re: kernel 3.8rc6" I thought that this would be the proper place to let the RC users know that the RC7 update was present. If discussing the RC versions isn't permissible I pretty sure that I will get a PM from the Admin. I' m sure there are other threads related to the repos versions.
