Re: [opensuse-factory] Please include smbmount in 11.0 kernel

Just to have mentioned it, with my opensuse 10.3 I have huge problems with cifs and OpenOffice files on smb shares as well, while colleagues using smbfs (and different distros) simply don't have these problems *at all*. I already spent considerable time working around the problem and trying to find out what exactly the problem is, searching for bug reports etc.

That's very annoying because I have this trouble simply because it was decided for opensuse to drop smbfs in favor of cifs, even though cifs doesn't seem to be ready for prime-time.

Regards,
Jörg

Dear all,

Sorry to be late, but just recently installed 10.3 and I found that smbmount
had been left out from the kernel.

I used to work with 10.1 which had smbmount included, but I wasn't able to mount my net-drive with 10.3 due to the lack of smbmount in the kernel. Since my net-drive doesn't mount with cifs (all kinds of errors) but does mount with smbfs, I wished Suse 11.0 would support smbfs again (like with 10.1). Thanks for the great product, looking forward to the releas of 11.0!

It's almost certainly too late to make a major change to the 11.0
kernel. For 11.1 it could be considered.

smbfs was dropped ... and will not come back. It has been replaced by cifs
in the kernel.

However, it is totally unrelated to the userland smbmount program I think.

Ciao, Marcus
