Description of problem:
I have an entry in my /etc/fstab that allows me to mount a windows share, it goes like:
//<windows server>/<user>$ /mnt/windows/ smbfs username=<user>/<domain>,uid=<user>,gid=<user>,user,noauto 0 0
With user being my user name and domain being the domain.
I can do a:
from the cmi and it asks me for my windows passwd, providing I get this correct it mounts without problems.
If I click on the computer icon on my desktop and them windows I get:
Unable to mount the selected volume.
SMB connection failed
Could this be fixed so that nautilus requests your windows passwd???
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. As above.
Actual Results: Drive doesn't mount
Expected Results: A box asking for a passwd would be nice like when you use
file->connect to server
This is unlikely to be fixed for RHEL4, but it should be in gnome 2.14 I believe
(at least some forms of passwords on mounts are supported). Gnome 2.14 is going
into FC5 so I'm closing this RAWHIDE, it'll be in RHEL5.
