#13 /dev/davfs0: no such file or directory

Hi,

I configured davfs2 with ssl, compiled and installed it
and I get the following error (at mount time):

WebDAV Enabled??
/dev/davfs0: no such file or directory

The result of "cat /proc/filesystems | grep coda" is:

nodev coda

So I suppose coda is enabled.

I run Fedora Core 1 and keep it up2date with the stable
release.

Should I create the device /dev/davfs0? Or is something
else wrong?

Guus Bonnema.

    mount.davfs will create the device file for you.
    Did you run mount as an root?

    See this code from mount.davfs.c:
    mknod(mopt->dev,
    S_IFCHR | S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR | S_IRGRP |
    S_IROTH,
    makedev(67, ret));

    Hi Hunkim,

    Thank you for responding. I didn't know I had to log on as
    root. Indeed I do get response now, albeit not what I want.
    I paste the response in:

    mount.davfs
    https://webdav.ibackup.com/users/myusername/Files /mnt/backup

    Could not contact server:
    401 Authorization Required
    WebDAV Server error

    # mount with ssl # username
    mount.davfs -o username=myusername
    https://webdav.ibackup.com/users/myusername/Files /mnt/backup

    Mount point is not an absolute directory

    What am I doing wrong?

    btw, if I should open a new bug, please state so and I will.
    Thanks for your effort.

    Guus.

    Try this:

    mount.davfs
    https://webdav.ibackup.com/users/myusername/Files /mnt/ba
    ckup -o username=myusername, password=xxxx

    Ok, I did this, but get the same response:

    Could not contact server:
    401 Authorization required
    WebDAV server error

    Any ideas how I can find what is wrong?

    Guus.

    Correction, I followed your advise again, except I left out
    the space between the comma after username and before
    password and now it works.

    I still wonder why the command I initially issued with the
    -o in front of http-bit did not work.

    Thank you very much for helping me.

    Guus.

    P.S. I closed the bug: or should I have waited for you to
    close it? What is customary in such cases?
