Saw some mention of that while fiddling but didn't bother to change it
On a similar note, has anyone managed to (easily) mount Samba shares on an
RH 6.2 client? I was running 6.0 and using the smbmount command and all was
fine. Not a nice commandline to type but I just put it in a script.
Problem now (on RH 6.2) is...
I have a public access share on the samba server which I want to mount on
$>ls -l /mnt | grep public
drwxrwxrwx root root public
Now, I can only mount this as root. If I try to mount as a user, I get
permission denied for the mount point (which seems reasonable). If I change
the ownership of the directory, I can mount as user but that's not what I
want. I tried stuff like setting the umask for the mount in /etc/fstab to
no avail. I tried setting the group ownership to "users" and still nothing
works (of course, each user is their own group too. Don't know how to
change that (vi /etc/passwd and change the GID for each user?)). Even
though I have world write permissions for /mnt/public, I still can't write
to the share without "su" first.
Any way to allow a user to do a
mount -t smbfs //SAMBA/SHARE /mount/point -o username=blah ?
If I set the "user" option in fstab, the user can run the command but then
we get the permission error for the mount point and if I do a
mount -t smbfs //SAMBA/SHARE /mount/point/that/i/own -o username=blah
I get "only root can do that" since I'm using something other than what's
in fstab. I don't want to add entries to fstab for each user with their own
mount point but that's all I can think of at present.
I could go on and on... If I could remember anything else. :-)
