When I use mount.cifs I get the following error:

mount error 5 = Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

What was the exact command you executed?


Will have to look into this myself as I've never experienced this error. Maybe try to google for this error as well and what causes it.


Not very helpful. :-(

man pages are usually very technical. You should see the man for the date command. And if it was me that you were referring to as not very helpful, sorry =) I try to be.

Greetings,

My FC2 system allows me to mount SMB shares entered in /etc/fstab/ just fine. But whenever I try to access them in the Nautilus file manager, my entire file system hangs and becomes unreachable. I can still use apps such as terminal and Mozilla, but to get file management back I need to reboot my system.

Is this a known problem?

Regards,


How are you mounting the shares? Via the command:


mount //host/share /mnt/samba -o username=whatever

I presume? If I understand correctly, smbfs doesn't work correctly in the released kernel. I believe you should mount it with type cifs such as:

mount -t cifs //host/share /mnt/samba -o username=whatever

You could also check out the mount.cifs command via "man mount.cifs"
