CIFS mount 'nounix' option Synology

2 minute read Published:

I’ve encountered a really strange issue while mouting a SMB share on my Synology today. I started to mount the remote share using the following command: [email protected]:/# mount -t cifs -o username=user,password=pass //ip/share/ /mnt and I was able to list the first directory level in the tree (inside /mnt), but I encountered this really weird error while trying to list anything deeper in the directory structure (/mnt/dir1). [email protected]:/mnt/dir1# ls ls: reading directory .

Syncthing on Synology

Goal here is to install syncthing on an old armv5t Synlogoy DS212J, there’s probably other ways to achieve that but here’s the quickest method I ended up with: Get the binary corresponding to your architecture. Extract it and copy the binary under /usr/local/bin/syncthing and make it executable: $ tar zxvf syncthing-linux-arm-v0.14.46.tar.gz $ sudo mv syncthing-linux-arm-v0.14.46/syncthing /usr/local/bin/syncthing $ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/syncthing Syncthing doesn’t need to run as root so I’d recommend to run the process from an unprivileged user, in my example user.
