Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 29165
Mounting smb exports with mount -t smbfs fails

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2smp i686; Nav)
When I mount an smb export using mount -t .smbfs //sambaserver/share
/mnt/share everything seems to work fine, ie, no complaints, df reports it
as being mounted. Trying to cd into /mnt/share produces cd: /mnt/share no
such file or directory.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount -t smbfs //somesambaserver/share /mnt/somepreexisting/dir
2. cd /mnt/somepreexisting/dir
Actual Results: cd: /mnt/somepreexisting/dir: No such file or directory
Expected Results: #cd /mnt/somepreexisting/dir
I am using kernel-2.4.1-0.1.9smp-i686.
The problem goes away if I build my own kernel (either 2.4.1 or 2.4.2) from
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
I have just verified it with our current rawhide kernel and was able to mount a
smb exported filesystem using
mount -t smbfs -o username=foo,password=bar //server/foo /mnt/test
therefore i close the bug as RESOLVED in Rawhide.
Read ya, Phil
I just tried (unsuccessfully) mounting a smb export with Wolverine. The
problem still exists.
