Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 821859
ncplogin fails to mount volume
Last modified: 2013-07-31 20:16:04 EDT
Description of problem:
After issuing "ncplogin -S <SERVERNAME> -A <SERVERNAME> -U <username>"
it throws message:
failed:ncplogin: No such file or directory attempt to open mount point
and the whole home directory becomes empty, causing a big trouble. It can be unmounted with #umount <SERVERNAME>/<USERNAME>, returning system to normal state.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ncplogin -S <SERVERNAME> -A <SERVERNAME> -U <username>
empty home directory
volume SYS mounted under ~/ncp/<SERVERNAME>/SYS
The server is netware 5 and TCP/IP connection to the server is used.
IMHO the same bug:
When trying mount netware volume get message:
ncpmount: No such device in mount(2)
There is no module ncpfs.ko in kernel/fs/ncpfs directory.
Developers, please, compile this module in next kernel version.
Sorry. I found ncpfs.ko in kernel-modules-extra rpm.
ncpmount works fine, except "Can't get /etc/mtab~ lock file" error.
kernel 3.4.3-1 (x86_64)
(same as Alex Sm) ncpmount: No such device in mount(2)
I've strace'd it and noted that the second parameter to "mount()" system call is set to "." (current directory???????) no matter what I specify in the "ncpmount" command.
It works fine under Arch Linux, and the second parameter to "mount()" is set correctly.
Sorry! I believed I installed "kernel-modules-extra"... but I double-checked it and realized I did not.
Now it works fine (except the "Can't get /etc/mtab~ lock file" issue).
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
