Samba problem when Upgrading from F12 to F13?


After doing the preupgrade to F13 I came back to see that I could not mount any samba shares.

The error that kept dogging me was
(for "mount //xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/c /mnt/c")

Quote:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/c,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
(via dmesg):
Quote:
CIFS VFS: Server requests plain text password but client support disabled
CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -6

CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22
CIFS VFS: Server requests plain text password but client support disabled
This is mainly for identification purposes.

If you see this, look for /sbin/mount.cifs, it is probably missing. If so, you may be able to fix this problem by installing these packages:

sudo yum -y install cifs-utils.i686 samba.i686 samba-client.i686 gvfs.i686 smb4k.i686

Some of them might already be installed, but once this is done you'll get mount.cifs back and everything should work just fine.

Fracked if I know what happened during the upgrade to break this. I only hope nothing else got zapped.

Have you actually done the upgrade yet ? Preupgrade only downloads the packages, you have to reboot for it to start the upgrade proper.

I knew I left some part of my post out. Yes, I did reboot and finish the upgrade. This error came up for me after I booted into the new F13.

Thanks Raveolution!

This solves my problem.

By the way, mount.cifs is in the package cifs-utils. I only installed this one and it works!
