Re: help with samba client?
I used to be able to use smbmount to mount a samba share into a non-root
users directory, but a while back it stopped working.
The man page suggests mount -t smbfs but when I try it I get an "only
root can do that" error (I don't remember the exact wording).
What's the correct way for a non-root user to mount a samba share?
it must be possible because the smbk4 gui program can mount a samba
share without the root password, but I want a command line way that I
can add to login scripts.
In my case both client and server are etch.
Samba is a mystery to me, but I use it on Sid to run with VMware's
vmserver 1.0.6 + XP (no SP's).
I used to get read-only shares mounted until I changed:
read only = no
in /etc/samba/smb.conf line #231.
That made the user home directory writable and non-root.
Don't know if that helps.
