    Question [RESOLVED] Can't Mount Box.com using Entware davfs2 (Asus RT-N16)

    I hope this is the correct place to post this. If this isn't, please let me know.

    I am using dd-wrt mega on an ASUS RT-N16 and am attempting to mount my box.com account using davfs2 loaded from Entware.

    I referenced the following sites to try to make this work:


    I successfully installed Entware and the davfs2 package, mounted another partition to /mnt, then created a subdirectory "box", then attempted to mount using the following command:
    Code:
    $mount -t davfs https://www.box.com/dav /mnt/box
    Didn't work. No messages at all. Realized the link may be old (after reading the Box FAQ link shown above) and tried:
    Code:
    $mount -t davfs https://dav.box.com/dav /mnt/box
    Still didn't work. Checked my log file at /var/log/messages (I had already enabled logging when setting up the router), no messages.

    I tried installing wdfs, just in case, but that didn't change anything. Same thing for installing busybox and mount-utils.

    I could use some help, even if it's troubleshooting steps. Since I have no messages I don't know what next steps to take to resolve this.

    Thank you!

    IMHO, dd-wrt is most weird firmware I ever seen. Try:
    Code:
    unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    insmod fuse
    Before mounting WebDAV shares.

    Still no messages

    Thank you for the quick replay and help. I tried the steps you provided and still received no messages. I've posted the output from my SSH session below.

    Code:
    root@DD-WRT:~# unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    root@DD-WRT:~# insmod fuse
    root@DD-WRT:~# mount -t davfs https://dav.box.com/dav /mnt/box

    root@DD-WRT:~#
    Any other steps I can try or any other information I can get to help troubleshoot? Would you recommend I switch to a different firmware? Go back to AsusWRT? Tomato? If Tomato, do you have a build you would recommend? (Toastman? Shibby? Viktec?)

    Thank you again for your help!

    Please, try to call davfs2 binary directly:
    Code:
    mount.davfs https://dav.box.com/dav /mnt/box

    Ok, that gave me an error message, which is a step forward!

    Code:
    root@DD-WRT:~# mount.davfs https://dav.box.com/dav /mnt/box
    mount.davfs: can't resolve symbol 'canonicalize_file_name' in lib 'mount.davfs'.
    root@DD-WRT:~#
    I didn't get any error messages when I installed davfs2, so I'm assuming that went well. I hadn't installed anything other than what comes in the base Entware_install.sh script, so I hope there aren't any conflicts.

    This is a fresh install, so if I need to start from scratch it won't cost me that much time investment.

    Looks like LD_LIBRARY_PATH is still set. Please, provide here an output of following commands:

    Code:
    ldd /opt/sbin/mount.davfs
    echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    Progress!

    Oh! I'm sorry, I had to shutdown the router and go to work between the two sets of instructions you provided.

    Here is the output you just requested:
    Code:
    root@DD-WRT:~# ldd /opt/sbin/mount.davfs
    -sh: ldd: not found
    root@DD-WRT:~# opkg install ldd

    ldd: LD_LIBRARY_PATH not included in search path: it needs ld.so stand-alone execution enabled

    But, given I had rebooted to go to work, I tried the following:
    Code:
    root@DD-WRT:~# unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    root@DD-WRT:~# insmod fuse
    root@DD-WRT:~# mount.davfs https://dav.box.com/dav /mnt/box
    mount.davfs: can't access file /etc/mtab: No such file or directory
    Shouldn't that be looking for /etc/fstab?

    It requires /etc/mtab. I'm surprised it's not present in DD-WRT, you can create it by:
    Code:
    ln -s /proc/mounts /etc/mtab

    Gave that a try and it didn't work:

    Code:
    root@DD-WRT:~# cat /proc/mounts
    rootfs / rootfs rw 0 0
    /dev/root / squashfs ro 0 0
    none /dev devfs rw 0 0
    proc /proc proc rw 0 0
    ramfs /tmp ramfs rw 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0
    devpts /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0
    /dev/discs/disc0/part2 /mnt ext2 rw 0 0
    /dev/discs/disc0/part1 /opt ext2 rw 0 0
    root@DD-WRT:~# ln -s /proc/mounts /etc/mtab
    root@DD-WRT:~# unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    root@DD-WRT:~# insmod fuse
    root@DD-WRT:~# mount.davfs https://dav.box.com/dav /mnt/box
    mount.davfs: can't access file /etc/mtab: No such file or directory
    root@DD-WRT:~# cat /etc/mtab
    root@DD-WRT:~#
    But I did some searching and found there should have been a fix already in place: http://svn.dd-wrt.com/ticket/1388
    So I checked what firmware I'm using: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/07/10) mega (SVN revision 14896)

    So that's a Noob mistake. I'm going to take some time to upgrade to more current firmware and give this another try. I will let you know if I run into more issues and will post the resolution if it works.

    No Change

    No change on newer firmware. I'm now on DD-WRT v3.0-r27413 (06/22/15) mega and successfully installed Entware using the instructions on the GitHub site, successfully installed davfs2, but there is no link between /etc/mtab and /proc/mounts. I also still can not create one. Here is the full process in case I am missing something:

    Looks like nothing more I can do about that. DD-WRT has no /etc/mtab — an ordinary system file, which present on all linux systems I ever seen. That's really strange.

    Good news! I installed the Toastman mod of Tomato (Tomato Firmware v1.28.7507 MIPSR2Toastman-RT K26 USB VLAN-VPN-NOCAT to be specific) and everything worked great!

    The only issue I'm working on now is auto-mounting on boot. I created my secrets file and created an init script to mount it, but it isn't working. I suspect it's because of the certificate issues I see when use the same command at the command line as shown below.

    Code:
    root@unknown:/tmp/home/root# mount -t davfs https://dav.box.com/dav /mnt/box
    mount.davfs: the server certificate is not trusted
      issuer:      GeoTrust Inc., US
      subject:     Box, Inc., Los Altos, California, US
      identity:    *.box.com
      fingerprint: c0:f7:f1:a6:34:42:d6:69:b1:90:41:a6:56:12:d6:a5:f9:60:57:ba
    You only should accept this certificate, if you can
    verify the fingerprint! The server might be faked
    or there might be a man-in-the-middle-attack.
    Accept certificate for this session? [y,N]
    I tried using the startup script shown below, which works on the command line to pass through that message, but doesn't work in script form.
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/box
    echo 'y' | mount -t davfs https://dav.box.com/dav /mnt/box
    I saw a few forum discussions about adding the certificate in PEM format, but that seems really intense and I'm looking for something a little easier if possible. I'm assuming this is something I don't know enough about to know the easy way of doing it. Any suggestions?

    Resolved! I changed the script over to the WAN up and all is working now. Thanks for all the help!
