I have a partially working Samba connection to my WinXP box. Until I
get the time to smooth everything out, I'm happy just having access to
my mp3s. This is the line in fstab:
//HOMER/ddrive /usr/media/sound/mp3s smbfs \
ip=192.168.0.1,workgroup=MYGROUP,guest,rw 0 0
When I type in "mount/usr/media/sound/mp3s" as root in a shell,
everything goes fine. But if I put the same line in rc.sysinit or
rc.local, it either isn't executed or it doesn't work. Anyone know why?
Note that other commands in the rc files work fine, which would support
the assumption that the mount is executed but something fails. But I
can do the mount fine from a root shell manually, which would support
the assumption that the mount isn't executed. Which leaves nothing to
By the way it's a RH 7.2 system with the custom HPT 372 RAID controller
kernel from HighPoint.
