Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6679
Win 95 bug fixes enabled in smbfs
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
The Win 95 bug fixes are enabled in the smbfs by default.
This is good if one is trying to mount Win 95 file systems
but causes bogus time stamps when Win NT file systems are
being mounted. According to the kernel documentation there
is no way to disable this set of fixes once enabled by
default, however it can be enabled for each mount point if
not enabled by default. For reference see
Note: I'm using kernel-2.2.5-15.rpm but this particular bug
doesn't seem to have been fixed in later releases.
It's fixed in the kernels in Raw Hide and 6.1, and
any kernels > 2.2.10.
