Description Tomas Skäre 2005-11-04 04:14:28 UTC
Prior to mounting, I have created a mount point:

drwxr-xr-x    2 root root     4096 Apr 12  2005 mockasin

I do a normal mount:

smbmount //mockasin/storage /mockasin -o username=tomber

That works fine, no errors. (Signing is turned off in server)

After mounting, I get:

lara:/# cd /mockasin 
lara:/mockasin# ls -l  
ls: .: Permission denied

ls -l / gives:
ls: mockasin: Permission denied

but lists the rest of the dirs and files in /. 

When umounting /mockasin, the directory is back to normal. 

uname -a: Linux lara 2.6.9 #19 Tue Jan 11 15:26:16 CET 2005 i686 GNU/Linux

After searching the web, I find that I'm not alone with this problem, and some
people states that it came somewhere between 3.0.2 and 3.0.4, but I haven't
tested with that old versions.

please check with the smbfs kernel module maintainers about this.
