No problem. I like to know and keep up with any problems with the packages
I maintain.

I think it is Bill Hawes. I know he has been dealing with the userland
utilities but development is so fast that is hard to keep them up to date.

>Eloy, was your libc6 upgrade also a new upstream release?

Yup, I upgraded from smbfs-2.0.1 to smbfs-2.0.2, the latest smbfs package
from Volcker Lendecke. However, 2.0.2 will only work with kernels 2.0.x. I
don't know who and when will upgrade the upstream smbfs package to work
with 2.1.x kernels.

I've heard that patches exist for both smbmount and smbclient (from the
Samba package). I really don't know why the patches are needed for smbclient.
