NetworkManager and SMB mounts in fstab not auto mounting

Hi all

I'm running slackware64 current. Until now I had my network configured statically in rc.inet1.conf and I have some SMB filesystems in my fstab, that was mounting automatically on boot, and all was working great (in its simplicity, anyway).

Now I have changed network configuration enabling NetworkManager, basically because I need to use some OpenVPN configs from NetworkManager itself.

So I configured a static IP for my NIC in the NetworkManager. From that moment, SMB filesystems in fstab no longer auto mounts on boot, because the network is not yet ready when the system tries to mount network filesystems

I don't know if this is related to my NIC (RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 0c) ), but before I started to use NetworkManager SMB filesystems was always mounted on boot

please find the relevant part of dmesg output

You could add the _netdev option in your /etc/fstab

manpage of mount(8)
  The filesystem resides on a device that requires network access
  (used to prevent the system from attempting to mount these filesystems
  until the network has been enabled on the system).
