    mount smb share


    Quick question, does mandriva 2009 support mapping to a samba share from "run command" i.e. ALT+F2?

    when I do \\server\share noting happens, also whan I do smb:\\server\share a page opens up but times out. At no time am I prompted for my username and password.

    Install smb4k...the use the command

    smb4k_mount (check options for what you need)

    I would do it this way because some progs. (like open office) can't handle a mounted smb share correctly otherwise..Loy

    Yeah, I am using smb4k but it was just easier to do ALT+F2 and type \\whatever\share.

    Anyway, I am having lots of issues with Mandriva so I am going back to SUSE and KDE 3.5.
