Thread: Cannot automount cifs network drives in fstab

    Default Cannot automount cifs network drives in fstab

    I just made a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.4-Tumbleweed and have the latest updates. However fstab lines I've used in the past are not working.

    Here's an example of two:
    //IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs credentials=/home/user/.scripts/.creds,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users 0 0
    //IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs guest,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users

    I can execute a command
    Code:
    sudo mount /home/user/mount
    and it works, but I'm wanting all my fstab lines to automount at boot as on other machines.

    Can you help me figure out what is the holdup?

    * kahu,

    maybe the network isn't up when the fstab is checked.

    my cifs service wasn't running. But starting it and rebooting didn't fix it yet.

    I'll experiment with those delayed-boot scripts.

    You should be asking in the tumbleweed forum.

    In the meantime I upgraded to Gnome 3.0, and all my drives now mount automatically at boot. I never got to the delayed scripts.
