Description of problem:
When attempting to mount a remote volume, I receive this error:
"ncpmount: No such device in mount(2)"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "insmod ipx" (to load ipx)
2. "ipx_configure --auto_interface=on --auto_primary=on"
3. "ifconfig" shows IPX/ETHERNET II, "slist" returns server list
4. check local mount point "/baz" exists (yes)
5. "ncpmount -S FOOBAR_FS1 -V /sys/users/baz -U baz -P password /baz"
ncpmount: No such device in mount(2)
mounting of Novell volume at local mount point
see attached for ifconfig output.
I get the same error for mounting "by hand" as above, and also with .nwsclient
When I use the same exact configuration/commands for the same Novell server from
a RH 8 box (kernel 2.4.18-27.8.0, ncpfs-188.8.131.52) the mount succeeds.

I have done some more testing.
Dropped ncpfs back to 184.108.40.206-11, which is what the RH 8 box is using, and get
the same problem.
Upgraded to most current ncpfs release (2.2.3-1, in Raw Hide), still get the
At this point I am beginning to wonder if there's a serious RH 9 problem with
ncpfs? Should I go back to RH 8?
Other reports suggest that it works ok if the kernel modul is built into
the kernel and not only as loadable kernel modul. Looks like a kernel issue
to me, not something I can fix in this component.
(Overall ncpfs is not fully supported and AFAIK deprecated also in
our Release Notes.)
