[SOLVED] mount issue Fedora 17

Hello, I just upgraded to Beefy Miracle, and suddenly I am no longer able to mount Windows shares as I had been previously. Pre-upgrade, this was working without issue:

mount -t cifs -o username=someuser,password=somepass // /mnt/music

However, now it fails with the following:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

tailing dmesg nets the following:

[ 4123.522958] CIFS VFS: Connecting to DFS root not implemented yet
[ 4123.523052] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22

Extensive searching online did yield some results, and even some known bugs. Most claimed to be fixed in the 3.4.4 kernel, however I am on 3.5.0-2.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Is this a known problem? Suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Re-installing the cifs-utils package fixed the issue for me.
