I am using Linux in a corporate environment that is focussed on
NT/Win98. I install all of my updates from suid root (including the
Samba updates and LinNeighborhood). When I run LinNeighborhood as
myself, I get the following error:
smbmnt must be installed suid root for direct user mounts (500, 500)
smbmnt failed: 1
mount.smbfs: ioctl failed, res=-1
Could not umount /mnt/win98/personal: Operation not permitted
I can browse the machine and see all the relevant shares. My settings
in the "Mount Dialog" are:
user: 500 wiensb
GID: 100 users
File mode: 644
Dir mode: 755
If I select the option "Mount as root", I receive the following error:
standard in must be a tty
If I restart LinNeighborhood as suid root, and try to mount directly
under my own user name, using the settings above, I receive the
following error message:
-I: invalid option -- U
Could not resolve mount point -I
For me, making smb work has been a hassle, but since my main Linux
experience is at work, and I don't really need access to smb shares on a
on-going basis, I haven't really wrestled this one to the ground. If
anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate some assistance.
On the question posed above, I would say that LinNeighborhood is not
ready for prime time yet, not if these kinds of problems happen to less
tolerant users :-).
