I have been running the -current kernel for some time now, (cross
compiling is wonderful)

and I want to be able to mount smb shares on other boxes (windows 2003 serv=
the problem is...
mount_smbfs //user@server/images /mnt/smb
mount_smbfs: can't get handle to requester (no /dev/nsmb* device available)

I tried=20
04:19:01 /dev # ./MAKEDEV nsmb
./MAKEDEV: nsmb0: unknown device
./MAKEDEV: nsmb1: unknown device
./MAKEDEV: nsmb2: unknown device
./MAKEDEV: nsmb3: unknown device

so I tried to recompile the kernel with
file-system     SMBFS
pseudo-device   nsmb

but I still get the exact same problem

the mailing lists has had this problem before, but I couldnt find
anyone who actually solved the problem

If there is something I am missing or its just not going to work or
anyone has any ideas

any input would be greatly appreciated
