           Summary: mount doesn't work with cifs
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.15.x
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P4
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: unassigned at busybox.net
        ReportedBy: c.kaser at eduhi.at

For the mount command I have enabled the "Support mounting CIFS/SMB file
systems" and therefor I assumed that the command "mount //server/share /dir -o
user=xy,pass=yz" would mount a CIFS-share, as it was possible in previous
versions. But unfortunately this support has been disabled:


         && (!mp->mnt_type || strcmp(mp->mnt_type, "cifs") == 0)
         && (mp->mnt_fsname[0] == '/' || mp->mnt_fsname[0] == '\\')
         && mp->mnt_fsname[0] == mp->mnt_fsname[1]
        ) {
#if 0 /* reported to break things */
                len_and_sockaddr *lsa;

There was a problem with a 2.4 kernel, which led to the deactivating of that


This "#if 0" breaks things with kernel 2.6.32.
