Hi list,

I need to mount windows shared folder to suse10.2
it was simple in 10.0 just
smbmount //neptun/temp /mnt/neptun -o ....
but in 10.2 i get error that smbfs is not supported by kernel :(

after googling i found proposal to add to fstab:
//linkstation/share /mnt/linkstation cifs user="eric",pass="****",noperm,dir_mode=0777,rw 0 0

but also doesn't help,

any ideas?
p.s. I need this folder to be mounted, so just browsing with konqueror doesn't satisfy me.

thanks in advance

Try replacing smbmount with mount.cifs. From reading other mail on this
list, my understanding is that the latest kernel doesn't have smbfs
installed. I guess smbfs is being deprecated in favor of cifs. I also seem
to recall reading that this only works if you're trying to mount a share on
one of the newer Windows os's (i. e., XP and maybe the one or two versions
prior to that).
