The development for Midnight Commander seems to be revived. There is a new site that supports it’s development at http://www.midnight-commander.org They are keeping the sources on a git repository and they accept patches.
This is good news for me, as I have some old issues with Midnight Commander and this might stimulate me to fix them 🙂
If you encounter the following error when you try to mount a cifs filesystem:
CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22

apt-get install smbfs

Are you using a CentOS or CentOS derived distribution and you experience deadlocks in dl_sysinfo_int80 function like this?:
#0 0x00ace7a2 in _dl_sysinfo_int80 () from /lib/ld-linux.so.2
#1 0x00cb248b in __read_nocancel () from /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0
#2 0x080bdf39 in el_push ()
#3 0x080bdfda in el_getc ()
#4 0x080bde50 in el_push ()
#5 0x080be11b in el_gets ()
#6 0x080a6f59 in main ()
Then you need to upgrade the kernel to the lastest version from the CentOS repositories (2.6.9-42.0.10.EL as of today):
yum upgrade kernel
