I'm using Kubuntu Dapper to connect to my Apache 2.2 webdav over ssl. I have no problem mounting with "sudo mount /home/david/mydocs" (/etc/fstab is already filled out with the "user" option). My problem is I want to be able to mount as a regular user. When I try that, I get this error message: "can't get root permissions, maybe program is not setuid" but ls -l /usr/sbin/mount.davfs returns
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 245 2006-03-27 08:47 /usr/sbin/mount.davfs. I can't figure it out. My regular username david has been added to the "users" group. Do you have any suggestions?
please allways include information about the version of the davfs2 package you are using. Some information about your OS would be usefull too.
I assume you are using the Debian package. In this case /user/sbin/mount.davfs is only a wrapper script. The binaries are in /usr/lib (one for kernel 2.4 and one for kernel 2.6). You must set this binaries setuid.
Fantastic! "sudo chmod 4755 mount.davfs-2.6" was all the magic it took. Now I can get work done at the cafe. Your next espresso is on me.
where will I find this cafe to have an espresso?
