Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187732
auto.smb uses smbfs however mount.smbfs does not exist
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
Tried to access a smb file system:
Got the following from /var/log/messages:
Apr 2 16:58:53 tecra automount: >> mount: unknown filesystem type 'smbfs'
I changed the opts line in the file /etc/auto.smb from smbfs to cifs and I was
then able to access the share.
Checkout the attached log file: SELINUX is having an absolute fit and sometimes
the whole thing gets really confused. The smb services are available to mounted
under each smb service?!?! check out line 167. Some sort of recursive loopy
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 127228 [details]
BTW, everything works perfectly under FC4. i.e. same network, same nas device,
just reboot my laptop into FC4.
smbmount was removed from fc5. You need to use CIFS, for one, and probably just
the mount command.
We'll work on making this transparent. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Russell this should be fixed in 4.1.4-22 in FC5.
Can you check please.
