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

Unmount it as root this time. Then, after mounting it as a regular user,
try unmounting it as the same user.


Same thing.
For a user to be able to mount smbfs...i had to chmod u+s `which smbmnt`.
Would i need to do something similar to allow non-root users to umount?

Do: # chmod u+s /usr/bin/smbumount and use "smbumount" to unmount your shares.

That works, thanks.

Am I to understand that as a regular user i will not be able to use umount to unmount a samba share?

This creates a little bit of a problem with regards to the use of the GUI for mounting and umounting devices. Right clicking on a device on the desktop and selecting unmount seems to use the umount command which only allows works for root.

I think so; I certainly couldn't get it to work, and it's not advisable to make "umount" SUID root.


Paul.
