Description rudi 2004-02-05 12:46:07 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1)

Description of problem:
As smbfs is being phased out for cifs in 2.6/FC2, mount.cifs should be
included in the samba-client package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install samba-client

Actual Results:  No /sbin/mount.cifs

Expected Results:  /sbin/mount.cifs installed

Additional info:

You can still mount shares using "mount -t cifs", but for consistency
with /sbin/mount.* and because it's already mentioned in documents all
over the web, mount.cifs should be shipped with the Samba suite.
Comment 1 Jay Fenlason 2004-02-05 12:57:54 EST
I've already built samba-3.0.2-3rc2 with /sbin/mount.cifs in it. 
Unfortunatly, Samba 3.0.2rc2 was released after the deadline for the
test1 release, so you'll have to get it from rawhide until test2 is made.
