Problem mounting samba share with fstab
Ok, I'm running Mandriva 2006 on a laptop and I am trying mount a networked pc using samba.
My fstab entry:
//pc1/C /mnt/pc1c smbfs credentials=/etc/samba/auth.pc1.joeuser,defaults 0 0
When I plug in my laptop using a wired Ethernet connection everything works fine. I log in and /mnt/pc1c has the files from my networked pc.
However, since this is laptop I need this to work with with my wireless connection. So when I log in with just a wireless connection /mnt/pc1c is not mounted. As I understand it, the wireless connection is not setup before fstab is executed.
Ok, so now I try:
mount //pc1/C but I get "only root can do that"
if a change to su and try mount //pc1/C it works fine with no problems.
I checked the password file /etc/samba/auth.pc1.joeuser and I have rwx rights.
I didn't post this on the wireless forum because I didn't think it is a wireless issue per se.
