I am new to the list, but i've searched the archives to no avail.
A few months ago, I installed linux 2.6 and samba 3.
I use fstab to mount shares from a windows XP station. I have done this
successfully for years using 2.4 and samba2.
Mounting the remote shares work fine, for a while. After some inactivity or
a reboot of the windows XP station, mounted volumes become unusable. Not in
any ordinary sense, it just freezes the computer. This happen if i try to
reach a file on the mounted dir or just do a plain ls. I have to kill ls to
be able to go any further. Sometimes i even have to do kill -9.
If i then umount the volume and remount it, everything works fine again for
I have no idea what is the problem!
dmesg give me lines like these:
smb_add_request: request [c6e14e80, mid=1206] timed out!
smb_add_request: request [c6e14e80, mid=7] timed out!
smb_add_request: request [c3164e80, mid=1207] timed out!
Here are some infos

This is the fstab line i use:
//winxp/c$ /mnt/winxp/c smbfs noauto,username=winxpuser 0 0

workgroup = NORRNET
netbios name = whyz-linux
server string = whyz-linux
interfaces = eth0
security = user
log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m
max log size = 50
dns proxy = No
encrypt passwords = yes
wins server = 18.104.22.168
hosts allow = 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
I've been living with this for quite some time now, and it's getting
unbearable. Has anyone had the same problem?
Greatful for any advice
