Building binaries from source for MyCloudMirror

#1

Hello,

since some days im the proud owner of a WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB.

Since I want to copy files from another network device to my WD I want to login into the wd via ssh, start a copy/move command and then put it into background with screen.

I realized that there are some binaries missing(screen, cifsmount ) but I should be able to build them on my own. I’ve read the information on  this page(WD MyCloud Mirror) and here (for the WD MyCloud)

Now im a little irritated, since the instructions are very detailed for the MyCloud and the archive to download varies a lot.

Are there any instruction on building stuff for the MyCloud Mirror?

When I search around the internet, I always stumble over instructions on how to do it for the MyCloud but its always said that I have to make sure I use the right firmware for my model. But it looks like I cant get the packages I need for my MyCloudMirror.

Can someone please give me hint or a step by step instruction on how to do this?

Or is there an archive for already build binaries maybe?

Thanks in advance,

Astaldo
