I was attempting to create this entry in the /etc/fstab file. It is to a WinXP machine.
//u...@bios/My Documents /laptop smbfs rw,noauto 0 0 It fails because 'fstab' does not allow embedded spaces in device names, not does it allow enclosing the name in quotes. I did some Googling and discovered that I am not the only one annoyed by this behavior. I discovered this patch that had been submitted awhile ago. http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-bugs/2007-October/026469.html Changing the share name is not really an option. Is there some way of making this work in 'fstab'? I can use the name including spaces in 'mount_smbfs' so that is how I am currently mounting the share. It just seems strange that 'fstab' by not accepting the use of quoting is not in step with how FreeBSD usually operates. -- Carmel carmel...@hotmail.com |::::======= |::::======= |=========== |=========== | It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
