inotify support in NSA-221 (Firmware 4.23)


I succesfully installed minidlna on my ZyXel NSA-221. The only problem is that it is not detecting new content. It appears that inotify is not working. The call to inotify_init() is returning ENODEV. I tried installing sirmax's inotify package (http://sites.google.com/site/sirmaxwiki/), but still no luck. Does anyone know if there is support for inotify in the kernel? If not, how to get this working.

Thanks for the help,

Re: inotify support in NSA-221 (Firmware 4.23)

i have same trouble as you. my device is nsa-210 fw 4.23.

# ls -l /dev/inotify
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root      10,  63 Sep  7 16:19 /dev/inotify

if I run inotify manually, answer is:
Checking /dev/inotify... inotify_init() error: No such device failed

it must be in kernel, fw doesnt support inotify.. i dont know how to solve it :-(

thats correct, inotify needs to be supported in the kernel.
The version of the kernel used is in principle capable of using it when selected when the kernel was compiled. However with the test you made it seems to benot enabled. The only way to solve it is compile a new(er) kernel. But that's not so easy, also installing it on the zyxels is tricky as they are in flash. (if you do it wrong the box won't boot anymore).
I know this post isn't very helpful
