View Full Version : [all variants] Hardy broke my mount scripts

May 5th, 2008, 12:48 AM
There appears to be a change in either samba support or mount in the version that was inclueded in hardy, i have scripts like the following that i would run to mount what i wanted from my server.


sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=me,password=******,uid=me,gid=me //file/multimedia /mnt/samba/multimedia

since I upgraded i get this error message when i launch one of them:
mount error: could not find target server. TCP name file/storage not found
No ip address specified and hostname not found

However my server is running fine and I can access the files using smb: in dolphin. What do I need to do to fix my scripts?

Thanks in advance!

Though I didn't need to do thoes things before upgraded and would like to know what changed that made it nessicary to have another daemon running now.
