I have built a new patch for smbfs which implements most of the required
In this patch, the following should all work:
all standard file io (open, close, read, write etc).
using device nodes (char, block & fifo).
Setting timestamps. (This was broken)
I have done some testing with mode settings. To get unix semantics you
need to configure the server with:
map archive = No
delete readonly = Yes
I have implemented a call to get the server extensions version number
and capabilities but they are not stored at the moment. The values are
not of much use at the moment anyway.
I have not implemented mknod as it seems that this might be changed on
the server side. (Which I think is a good idea).
You still need a patch for the samba source. The patch implements
SMB_SIZE_NO_CHANGE and SMB_TIME_NO_CHANGE. Both of which should work on
machines without a 64 bit integer type.
