problem with smb mounts


I have a problem on my slack13 box with smb (cifs) mounts.

I am able to create new files, rename them and delete them
but when I open a file in an editor and change something I get an errormessage that the file can not be saved.

the config (user, permissions, fstab entry) should be exact that one I have on my slackware 12.2 pcs where this problem never occurred.

what could I have done wrong?

probably a silly question but do you have write privelidges on the file? if not then:
chmod 777 filename
then try opening and saving

I have full permissions on the files
like I wrote, have the same settings in slackware 12.2 and there this problem does not occur.

but it could be that this is a problem of the dlink DNS-323 or I have done something wrong in the setup.
there is also an other thing, copy files to there always brings the message 'unable to change file permissions'
so files are always rwx for everyone

I will get the latest firmware, recheck if the NAS is configured right and than have a look, but this needs to wait a few days.

its been a while, but i was just going though some of the stuff in my folder and found this unresolved thread.

how did you go in the end? it sounds like the problem lies with the permissions of the external host, but just to be sure that its not your slackware box you can make sure cifs is uptodate on it - aptitude install smbfs.

its very strange that you are able to create files, but are not able to edit them - it could even be a user permissions issue - although windows has the same r/w/x options as linux so there should not be a conflict there...
