sorry, you're right. I forgot to mention that I'm referring to openSUSE Factory.
Ah, yeah, no one has updated the novfs code for FACTORY yet. Feel free to send us patches to do so if you can :)
And can't you just use the cifs module instead? I'd strongly recommend using that as the novfs code has some known issues that can't be worked around.
Can't the cifs module only be used against a netware server that has cifs exported (cifsstrt) ?
Yes. But for some reason, I thought this was what most big Netware instances were running these days for better integration with Windows machines.
If so: this is a 'nightmare' on a netware server and I'm sure we do not want this enabled on the > 100 servers we're managing (the nightmare starts latest with the cifsctxt.txt configuration file...bwah).
Ah, ok, nevermind then, I must have been mistaken.
As said, for the moment I work around with ncpmount (based on ncpfs), but the 4GB limitation starts to strike more and more. Nevertheless, thanks anyway for your reply. If there is any testing resource needed: count me in.
The 4Gb limitation seems like something we are not going to be able to overcome in the novfs code so if this is a problem for you, I think the cifs solution is the only one at this time. If this is a real issue, please bring it up to your Novell support representative to be able to give us some resources to deal with it. thanks, greg k-h -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com For additional commands, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
