Mount an SMB network drive on Raspberry Pi

In this tutorial we will describe how to connect your Raspberry Pi to a network drive and permanently mount it to your system. Even though this article uses a Raspberry Pi as an example to connect to an SMB drive, the steps used can be applied to any Debian based system, such as Ubuntu.

If you have a Raspberry Pi you might have noticed that the storage possibilities are kind of limited unless you have some external storage. Even though you can get SD cards with 64+gb of storage, you probably want more if you have a lot of music and movies that you are streaming through your Pi.

Fix library dependency error in XBMC on Raspberry Pi

If you have installed Mopidy on your RaspBMC you probably noticed that XBMC won’t start when you reboot the Pi. Technically it’s not Mopidy that causes XBMC to crash, but rather some package dependencies that are introduced when you install it. More precisely these:

The problem is that Mopidy installs an older version of these packages than the one XBMC is dependent on, and it puts these packages in  /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/.
