Am in the process of upgrading from an ancient OpenSuSE release (7.2) to 11.2. One thing I have been unable to do that worked fine under 7.2 is remotely mounting a compact flash drive from an XP machine. Worked fine for many moons on 7.2:
mount -t cifs -o rw //xpbox/‘cf (H)’ /cf0
mount error(12): Cannot allocate memory
Other cifs mounts of hard disks work fine.
I found a posting that says this means the memory allocation error is from the XP side. It says to fiddle with the XP registry, specifically IRPStackSize. I was not confident this fix would work since there should not be anything significantly more consuming with 11.2 compared to 7.2, and indeed, I got the same error after changing the parameter to 18 and rebooting the XP machine.
Any ideas? I have some suspicion that the space and parenthesis in the share name might be fouling up someone. XP forces the share name to this for some reason.
Help is appreciated.
