can't mount shares with 3.9 kernel, works with 3.6.11


Slackware 14.0 64 bit

I tried the 3.9 kernel today, and ran into a few problems.

First, the latest ATI video drivers installed nicely, which was a pleasant surprise as with the 3.8 kernel I was unable to get them to install.

However - I found that I was no longer able to mount shares from my other boxes. I would get permission denied. No idea why. I've done this for *years*. I reverted back to the 3.6.11 kernel, problem went away. Using chmod on /sbin/mount.cifs did not fix it this time - in the past this has fixed permission denied problems trying to mount shares. This time I could not get it to work.From a box with an older kernel, I could easily mount the shares on the 3.9 box, so it seems to be a one way problem.

Anyone know about problems with mount or mounting shares when running under the 3.9 kernel?

From what I have found on the net the 3.8 kernel does not include support for ntlm so you need to add the option sec=ntlm when mounting a cifs share.

Yup, that was exactly what it took. I can confirm this occurs in the 3.9 kernel as well. I poked around a bit and eventually found a lot of people having the same problem. I have yet another machine I just loaded yesterday using the 3.2.29 kernel, and it mounts shares just fine.

Well, if you think that is bad, try sharing folders with Windows 7. When it works, it works, but when it doesn't it can be hell on earth trying to figure it out. I have a Win7 box on my desk and I cannot get file sharing to work to save my life. Other boxes work, but not this one. No idea why. File sharing with Windows is as bad as plug-and-pray was back in the Win98 era, for those of us that were around back then.

The 3.10 kernel is the same. I simply add -o sec=ntlm to the mount command:

mount //1.2.3.4/me /mnt/me -o sec=ntlm

And it works as nice as can be.
