Experiencing this prob w/ all samba versions above 2.2.8a, on Linux 2.4.20-8,
x86. configured samba w/ "--with-smbmount". Problem exists w/ seemingly all
possible samba configuration options...
Upon reboot, the following command executes successfully (once)...
mount -t smbfs -o username=xxx,password=xxx //host/share /mountpoint
a second attempt (any subsequent attempt for that matter) to mount another
share of the same type causes the command to hang. CTRL-C must be pressed to
escape. Interestingly enough, the mount is actually created. This (bug?)
makes it impossible to mount multiple smb shares via a script, as the script
hangs after the first mount.
I cannot see a problem here. I have several smbfs mounts on several machines.
This works well, but otherwise it wouldn't be fixed anyway due to
unmaintainedness of smbfs. use cifs this days
