mounting network shares (KDE)


I have a line in my fstab which i though would mount a network share during startup, it does'nt I have to use the command sudo mount //mnt/Server_media.

After booting into KDE I have a desktop icon refering to the mount, but if click on it i get an error saying only 'root can mount' I then use the above command to get it working.

How can i get this to mount during bootup ?

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 nouser,defaults,errors=remount-ro,atime,auto,rw,dev,exec,suid 0 1
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,atime,noauto,rw,dev,exec,suid 0 0
/dev/hda4 /media/FAT vfat iocharset=utf8,umask=000,uid=0,gid=0,auto,rw,nouser 0 0
//Server1/Media /mnt/Server_media smbfs credentials=/etc/samba/user,rw,uid=stefan 0 0

Add the umask option to your fstab line to allow all to write. Also the user or users option depending on the system for mounting. Example of one.
Code:
//lcomp15/DDRIVE  /mnt/comp15_smbfs/lcomp15_smbfs_ddrive              smbfs   umask=000,users,noauto,credentials=/home/user58/credentials/win2000credentials 0 0

ok thanks, tried this line without success.

//Server1/Media /mnt/Server_media smbfs umask=000,user,noauto,credentials=/etc/samba/user 0 0

(user is a file with my username and password for my samba account on the server)

I still have to mount it with

sudo mount /mnt/Server_media

The mount command permissions may only allow root to use. One can change the permissions ( not recommended ) or edit /etc/sudoers file with the visudo tool and allow you the user to use the command with or without your user password.

Still I don't think will help in a gui mount. Set sudoers file to allow you the user access without a password for the mount command and see if that works after a restart. Last thought is maybe a PAM security issue.

Thanks Brian, I've now changed my desktop to Gnome and that mounts everything just fine.

Glad you have it working but should work under KDE. Maybe you need to update KDE. The version you have may have a bug in it.
