Bug with Mintdisk?

Postby marcus0263 » Wed Apr 04, 2007 4:09 pm

I posted this in Network, didn't get a response. So let's try it again, is there a bug here?

Each time I log out and log back in fusesmb creates another mount point. I've reproduced this on multiple machines. So let's say you leave your machine on for a week and log in an average of 3 times a day, you'd have 21 mount point points of /home/user/Network :-(

Here's the recent from my brothers machine I've set up (I've masked the user name)

Code: Select all

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2             8.0G  2.7G  5.4G  34% /
varrun                760M  104K  760M   1% /var/run
varlock               760M     0  760M   0% /var/lock
procbususb             10M  100K   10M   1% /proc/bus/usb
udev                   10M  100K   10M   1% /dev
devshm                760M     0  760M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda1              59M   16M   41M  28% /boot
/dev/hda5              63G  1.4G   62G   3% /home
/dev/hda3             3.1G  262M  2.8G   9% /var
fusesmb               8.0G  2.7G  5.4G  34% /home/xxxx/Network
fusesmb               8.0G  2.7G  5.4G  34% /home/xxxx/Network
/dev/sda1             280G  196G   84G  70% /media/usbdisk
fusesmb               8.0G  2.7G  5.4G  34% /home/xxxx/Network

Thanks for this. It's a problem alright. I didn't think fusesmb was going to mount itself more than once on the same mountpoint :) It's pretty unstable (users reported having problems with accessing files for instance) and it was included in Bianca as a tech preview.

It's in mintdesktop by the way (not in mintdisk) and you can deactivate it by unchecking the network auto-browsing option. I'll have a look at this problem and see if we can either update mintdesktop to check for an already existing mountpoint or fusesmb itself to do that as well.
