Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2000-02-20 11:45:35 EST
Scenario:

The filesystem //foo/bar is specified in /etc/fstab as mountable on /bar,
with options "user,noauto".

This fails, because smbmount isn't installed setuid.

When this is fixed, the operation fails with message "failed to unmount
/bar" (this is not a partition, just an empty directory).
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-21 11:06:59 EST
There are (last time we checked) a couple of races still in smbmount,
so it's not setuid.  The 'device or resource busy' is because
if the smbmount fails, the directory is left in a 'half-mounted'
state
