[Samba] Problem running kde

Well I told myself I wasn't coming back to this (off topic) 'why NFS is
bad' discussion, but since I kindof started it...
My point was simply that you're doing a conversion back to the original
format through a potential lossy intermediate. Kind of like
transferring a wav file by first compressing it into mp3 and then back
out. Not to slag samba, since it's about 20% of my admin day and I
think it's wonderful, but it just seems ill suited for what you're
doing. And besides that you're bringing in the kernel modules for
smb/cifs which actually has very little to do with the current samba tree.
Take a good search to the samba archive, there was a lengthy (on topic)
discussion of getting kde to work over samba shares a while ago. Can't
remember if it was resolved in a positive manner, or if they reverted to
nfs as well, but I'd start reading there.

You should really argue with proper information, unless this is a
fedora-ism in which case I'll eat crow. From `man nfs`:
Three different versions of the NFS protocol are supported by the Linux
NFS client: NFS version 2, NFS version 3, and NFS version 4.
From the looks of things, you already have the support in your setup.
While I haven't checked into it very much, this site seems to have a
nice howto on getting it up and running:
