Yes, the SMB client is not 100% functional in this release (Fedora Core 2).
Go Start -> Browse Filesystem in there File -> Connect to server
you will be asked for the Name and the URL of your share
Enter the Name you want,as URL type something like
you get an icon on Desktop, when you click it you will be promted for username and password.
when i try to mount with that cifs thing told me at http://www.fedorafaq.org/
i get an error msg that share could not be found
("mount error: could not find target server. TCP name ovoda/a not found rc = 9")
i ty mount or smbmount i get "Could not resolve mount point"
this command will display available the share names
smbclient -U yournetusername -L yournetserver
even if you mount a smbfs , the browse will hang if you try to browse the link.
To Update smbclient, goto
Download the binaries (rpm-s) related to FC2 and samba and install them
rpm -Uvh samba-client*.rpm (may have dependencies)
create a directory in /mnt/ (best with your share name) then
mount -t smbfs -o username=yournetusernname //yournetserver/yournetshare /mnt/yournewdir
... i hope it works now
Thank you .....
If i could get OFP to run under wine, i would delete my Win2k !!! LINUX ROCKS
