Strange problem with SMBMOUNT and LAN Browser
Using Lan browser I can read / write Windows FAT 32 files as a user.
If I mount the share
# smbmount //doze-desktop/maxtor/Z /mnt/maxtor
I get prompted for a password -- no problem and thenI can see all the files.
BUT I can't create anything unless I'm root --even If I've given all possible permissions.
Then if I update something on this drive either from Windows or the LAN browser I don't see it under the /mnt/maxtor directory even with a reload / refresh from KONQ.
The file can be accessed immediately using the LAN browser.
So I'm flummexd -- why can I update a file on the LAN browser but only Root can update the "Mounted" file even if Root grants a user permissions
and why is the directory not updated at the same time as an update made via Windows or the Lan browser --It's the same Disk .
