Permissions and smbfs mounts
I'm having some permissions issues with mount and smbfs that don't appear to be solved by anything I can find. I'm trying to mount a share so all users can access it from /mnt/samba. My command is
mount -t smbfs -o uid=root,gid=100,fmask=644,dmask=755,rw,username="Paul" //Jupiter/Media /mnt/samba
However, when I run that, the mount point ends up being locked out from everyone, even root, and "ls -l" doesn't even list the mount point. umount will make the mount point appear again. The mount point's permissions are set to 777.
