SAMBA Smbfs Depreciated 10.2 -- how to get round


Hi all

it seems the Samba Fs is depreciated in 10.2 -- whether this is with M$ and Novell I don't know but I'm not getting into that contest

Anyway to make it work as before I've condensed stuff out of the website I've listed at the bottom of my post.

1)
Please switch to the CIFS instead of the default SMBFS file system. To do so, go to the configuration dialog and change the entry from SMBFS to CIFS in the combo box under Samba->mount->File System.

Since you are using SUSE, please be also sure that the firewall is configured correctly.

2)

smbfs was removed from the SuSE kernel because it is not maintained any longer. SuSE decided this was better (other distros left it in) because of support concerns. cifs seems to work, just replace that in your mount or fstab statement, otherwise identical syntax.

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=227060


For people with the same problem I should add that you must set UID for /sbin/mount.cifs and /mount/umount.cifs. The easy way is open a root konqueror, right-click on these files and set the property "set UID" in permission tab.


For more details have a look at this website


http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=9814

choose application SMB4K


For Gnome users -- you are on your own here I'm afraid.

Cheers
-K
