Hi everyone,

I'm using Linux kernel 2.4.29 and samba 3.0.10 with Slackware 10.1 distro and 
I'm having trouble getting the mount.smb to respect my uid and gid options. 
Whichever uid and gid I specify I get something strange like uid 147926 and 
gid 101. I heard someplace that this is a bug in the smbfs kernel module but 
in that case it has appeard after the kernel 2.4.22 since I started having 
these problems after I upgraded from Slack 9.1 which had that kernel.

Any ideas what is wrong and how I can fix ti?

Best regards,


Goran Cengic
