why smbfs not starting up at boot time?
I have a couple of smbfs lines in my fstab. I have no problem automounting them from the command line, with 'mount'
This also works:
However, at boot time, the smbfs script fails. It reports "SMB connection failed" to the boot.log. The boot log also reports "Skipped services in runlevel 5: nfs smbfs"
The failure of nfs and smbfs suggests a networking problem. However, the network script works fine, and is run well before the nfs and smbfs scripts. And, indeed, the network is fine after boot, letting me run the smbfs script manually with no problem.
I run SuSE 8.2.
