I have a bit of a problem. I am trying to connect a new slackware install to a remote partition that has all of my files on it.
Here is the line in /etc/fstab which mounts the partition but when I try to mount (as root) it asks for a password and subsquently mounts the partition as root.
//192.168.2.18/MyFiles /home/myuser/movies smbfs
auto,credentials=/home/myuser/.credentials,uid=500,umask=000,user 0 1
(myuser really being my user)
the .credentials file is 744 and owned by my user
the file looks like this:
(again my login credentials for the remove file system)
Here is what is going on in CLI when I mount
drwxr-xr-x 2 myuser users 48 2008-08-28 22:38 movies
root@SlackWare1:/home/myuser# mount movies/
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4096 2008-08-28 23:05 movies
also as my user when I try to touch a file 'test'
touch: cannot touch `test': Permission denied
my user id is 500
