fedora/samba/xmms frustration
Hi, I have a samba server on a PC running Centos. From my F16 box I can connect to this share via Nautilus - not a problem.

I want to use xmms to play mp3s from this share. But it is not a directory. I received a suggestion to create a mount point and mount the share
mount -t cifs //share /mnt/mp3 -o user=username

mount error(115): Operation now in progress
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Any suggestions on how to make the share visible would be appreciated

The mount command should look like this:


mount -t cifs -o username=USERNAME,password=PASSWD // /mnt/share
This is an example. You have to supply a valid user, password. The IP address of the server + share name. The last part is the mount point in the client. It needs to me an empty directory.

thanks camorri. That has done the trick.

// - IP add and share name whereas I was using IP add and share location.
