Hi,

I'm using gentoo and emerged davfs2, and everything
seemed to work. I added an entry to /etc/fstab and
tried to mount it, and i get (after supplying username
and password):
/sbin/mount.davfs: Could not open /dev/davfs0
This happens regardless whether i am root or a normal
user. After mount, /dev/davfs0 is still there, does
that mean something?

Regards,
Stefan

    Please check:
    - is the coda kernel module loaded (lsmod)
    - is some other process using /dev/davfs0
    - are you member of group 'users' (gentoo might use an other
    group)

    Usually it's the kernel module. You might load it manually
    (modprobe coda) or configure your system to load it
    automatically.

    kind of late reply, but I had this same issue... it is
    caused by a missing CODA driver. Do a "modprobe coda" to
    load it, if it does not work, you need to enable the Coda
    Filesystem in the kernel (Filesystems > Network filesystems
    > CODA)
