Patch for nsmb.conf(5)


r214387 introduced a wrong path for per-user nsmb.conf file. See contrib/smbfs/lib/smb/subr.c :

164-    home = getenv("HOME");
165-    if (home) {
166-            fn = malloc(strlen(home) + 20);
167:            sprintf(fn, "%s/.nsmbrc", home);
168-            error = rc_open(fn, "r", &smb_rc);
169-            free(fn);
170-    }
171-    error = rc_merge(SMB_CFG_FILE, &smb_rc);

The file read is in fact ~/.nsmbrc, as also specified in mount_smbfs(8) :

92:     ~/.nsmbrc       Keeps static parameters for connections and other information.

and /etc/nsmb.conf :

3-# smbfs lookups configuration files in next order:
4:#     1. ~/.nsmbrc
5-#     2. /etc/nsmb.conf - if this file found it will
6-#        override values with same keys from user files.

Find attached a patch that fixes the path to that file in nsmb.conf(5).

  Fix path for per-user nsmb.conf file

  ~/nsmb.conf, as erroneously introduced by r214387, is never used. Fix the man
  page to specify that ~/.nsmbrc is used instead.
