Have you tried to run
Code:
slackpkg install-new
and see if you missed a package during upgrading?
Have a look on CHANGES_AND_HINTS to verify whether the new additions have been installed on your system

smbfs is deprecated, you should use cifs.

here I got this in /etc/fstab
Code:
//192.168.100.100/share /media/share cifs user=myuser%mypassword,uid=1000,gid=100 0 0

consider that cifs is a kernel module, so with older kernels than the one on slackware-14.0, 3.2.29, it depends on which modules you have available (the two, cifs and smbfs, are mutual exclusive).
