The case at:
has configuration files and such for the issue which seems to go back all the
way to 2.2 version of samba cifs client on Red Hat.
In summary, at boot time, with /etc/fstab we are trying to create a samba mount
from a red hat client to a Fedora Core 2 server. No matter what we try the files
appear to be owned by root and can not be modified by their owners.
The user accounts exist on both machines and have the same uid gid on both systems.
HP-UX cifsclient mounts which runs on top of a nfs client does not show the
problem. Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server mounts also show correct permissions.
Please let me know what other information I need to provide to document the bug.
Try the cifs fs for the 2.6 kernel.
or look more into the unix extensions. We do not
maintain the smbfs kernel module. Sorry.
