I recently upgraded my macbook to OS X 10.7 Lion. Previously this could connect to the LS running Openlink 0.52b using SMB but now I get a version error. I know Apple has changed the SAMBA implementation in Lion, and it now appears to require Samba 3 to connect. I have searched around but cannot find Mipsel binaries for Samba 3 anywhere. Compiling from source gives me errors that I can't figure out. Can anyone point me to a Samba 3 binary package, assuming this can run on Openlink???
Thanks.

Your problem is netatalk, not samba.
At least that was the first known problem of Lion regarding
network attached storages.
Update netatalk to the most recent version (unfortunately
I can't tell you, if a more recent one is available for your
system).

Yes I know there were changes to netatalk, but Apple also dropped SAMBA in favour of its own tools. See Link;

http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/11 ... vices.html

I am sharing folders on the Linkstation as "Windows" i.e. SAMBA and not "Mac".
These are picked up in the Mac Finder and appear under "Shared" in the sidebar. However, clicking into the shares under Mac OS X Lion gives the version error, the same issue is seen while trying to connect to smb://x.x.x.x in a browser.

Lion can access shares on another Linux box I have running Samba 3, so that is why I need those binaries.

Have you tried to use the "Connect to Server" instead of the
finder icons?
If you are the only one using the NAS, what about using NFS?

yes, the connect to server gives the same version error.
I'm not sure how I would go about getting NFS support into openlink 0.52b.
Any pointers would be appreciated, I'll give it a go!!!
Thanks

A quick search for "openlink 0.52 nfs" came up with this:
http://buffalo.nas-central.org/index.php/NFS_tutorial_-_Get_the_Network_File_System_running
Also some other posts regarding NFS server and openlink were
listed (some in german).
So plenty of possibly helpful infos in our forum. ;-)
I do not own such an "old beast", so I can't help any further.

Kernel NFS for Mipsel http://www.herz.in/downloads/linkstation

The real problem is that Alexander Skwar'sipkg feed for the LS2 is GONE
http://alexander.skwar.name/~askwar/lin ... es/mipsel/

with this you could have gotten Samba 3+ easily

Timtimred found a few ipkg feeds that may work. You use them at your own risk though, since they are completely untested with an LS2

http://feeds.angstrom-distribution.org/ ... bc/mipsel/
appears not to have samba or netatalk
