Thanks Gareth,

Actually, I am using docker and forgot that the kernel is the job of the host..... which is Alpine. All that was needed is to modprobe in the bare metal.

Hi Claude,

The kernel package - linux-vanilla or linux-virt.

Run (as root) 'modprobe cifs' and /proc/fs/cifs should appear.

Kind regards,

I am trying to use Alpine for a Samba project. I was able to listy remote host/shares, etc. However, when I wanted to get some stats I found out that /proc/fs/cifs is missing.

I have installed cifs-utils so mount.cifs is present but what about the kernel module? Which package provides that/
