Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs
I am running Karmic on an EeePC 1005ha.
Your "How To" worked perfectly except for having the "CIFS VFS: No response for cmd 50 ..." error on shutdown.
Your fix listed for Jaunty under troubleshooting solved it perfectly for Karmic, too. [edit: I first thought it solved, but on subsequent shutdowns and restarts found erratic boot and shutdown behaviour, such as going into recovery mode menu screen during shutdown, thence to a login cursor. See last paragraph below for more.]
The first fix by adding links removed the "CIFS..." error notice, but left a one minute hang with a blinking cursor during shutdown, so that way is apparently not good for Karmic.
After much suffering, I removed all the edits and used the dmizer "Howto: Fix Windows share browsing issues". This requires manual share mount, but it works without any problems.
