I have an FC1 box and have had so far little problem in mounting my samba file systems

\\\music /mnt/smb/music smbfs _netdev,auto,user,ro,username=,password= 0 0

mount /mnt/smb/music will mount the partition with no questions asked.

Umounting is a lil bit of a problem though, I get the following error
  umount: /mnt/smb/music mount disagrees with the fstab

Any ideas, explanations or suggestions?

cat /etc/fstab

what does it say?


The example was from my /etc/fstab, but here is its entire contents.

The samba lines are kinda long and may endup jumbled.

$ cat /etc/fstab
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0

This might be a red herring, but could you try changing the backslashes to slashes and see if it works any better? I know Windows only works with backslashes in this context, but samba works both ways and a regular slash doesn't have any special meaning that might get misinterpreted.


That just may be it. The error message changed.

umount: only root can unmount // from /mnt/smb/public

Question though, I can mount the share as a user. How can i umount it?
