Description of problem:
I'm trying to mount smb share as root

# mount -t cifs // /mnt/incoming
Segmentation fault

I've found the reason - /sbin/mount.cifs is missing.
I've forgot to install samba-client rpm.

Anyway segfault should not happen.
Note that after I installed samba-client (/sbin/mount.cifs is there)
no error appears - it is working.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.remove /sbin/mount.cifs
2.mount some smb share

Actual Results:  Segmantation fault

Expected Results:  display that could not found mount.cifs file.

Yikes. This is a kernel issue as far as I can tell - the kernel gets a
general protection fault on my box.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-07 03:57:10 UTC
Does this still happen with the test3 kernel?

Problem fixed in fc2. Module fixed upstream.
