Description Sven Arvidsson 2004-12-16 03:49:53 UTC
If you try to use cifs to mount an smb share using the "users" option (making it
possible for any user to mount/umount) cifs gets confused and shows this error
'username specified with no parameter'
Comment 1 Steve French 2005-03-07 21:09:39 UTC
fixed in more current mount.cifs and also in 2.6.10 or later kernels (may be 
even in earlier kernels).  See project page for patches for some earlier 
kernels and mount.cifs.c is in SAMBA_3_0 tree
