View Full Version : smbmount missing in FC5 Test 3
23rd February 2006, 10:25 PM
I know that smbmount command was included samba-client package in early Fedora.
now I installed samba, samba-client, samba-common package in FC5 test 3 but can not find smbmount command. and moreover "mount -t smbfs" command doesn't work.
also smbfs directory doesn't exist in /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1975_FC5/kernel/fs/.

CIFS is the way to go now - from the looks of things (I don't run Samba, but the samba-client RPM contents give me a clue), it's now "mount -t cifs" from what I can see (as I said, maybe not 100% correct since I don't run it myself).

CIFS again, baby - see:

My mistake. smbclient -> smbmount
thanks to your response, rkl

I had this same problem, and the pointer to cifs was very helpful. It still seems like something is missing, though. When I do a mount command, why does it continue to look for smbfs instead of cifs?
# mount //10.0.1.1/ktanzer /home/ktanzer/drip198
mount: unknown filesystem type 'smbfs'

I have the same issue - no smbmount. ...Researching at the moment...

Well, I have the same problem, there appears to be no smbmount command anymore. You can substitute with mount.cifs and that works fine. It functions the same a the smbmount command did.
mount.cifs //IP_Address/shane_name /mount_point -o username=user

Too bad it doesn't work for everyone.
cifs fails on my Zaurus and others have found that it fails on older versions of Windoze.
So much for the wisdom of replacing smbfs with cifs. Someone really thought that one through...
