Hi all,

I am trying to cross compile samba version 2.2.12 to an ARM platform (kernel

using arm-tools chain 3.4.2.

I get the smbmount compiled, however, when I want to mount a directory that
is located

in a Windows XP PC, I get the following message:

WARNING: The "strip dot"option is deprecated
unrecognized character set
handle_source_env: Failed to open file , Error was Success
WARNING: The "alternate permissions"option is deprecated
WARNING: The "status"option is deprecated
WARNING: The "postscript"option is deprecated
WARNING: The "printer driver"option is deprecated
WARNING: The "printer driver file"option is deprecated
WARNING: The "printer driver location"option is deprecated
Unable to copy service - source not found:
execvp of smbmnt failed. Error was No such file or directory.smbmnt failed:

And I cannot mount the directory. I do not think that it is related the

problem because when I use wrong username/password or try in some wrong
target paths,

it can report me the corresponding error message.

I have tried another tool - smbclient, which works perfectly! Seems that I
am just not

able to mount with smbmount.

Can anyone one elp me to solve this problem? Thanks a lot!
