[Bug 404917] Re: mounted samba shares unavailable after suspend


rupert, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder, but the one at the top) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

Bug description:
  I have noticed this happen every time I open my laptop running 9.04

  If before suspend, I open a network share (that is actually a Samba
  share on another Ubuntu machine (8.04) and then allow the machine to
  go into suspend (by closing the lid) and then open the lid again
  sometime later, after the machine is running again, I can no longer
  access the shared folder (either via the icon on the desktop or via

  I get an error saying: Could not display XXXXX. The file is of an
  unknown type.

  Then if I try to browse  any of my Samba network shares, I more often
  than not get no results. If I click on Places>Network, I get to see
  Windows Network, but if I click on that, I get an empty blank nautilus
  window. If I then click back, I can then go one further, so I can
  click through Places>Network>Windows Networks> MSHome, but then it is
  blank. Then if I click back all the way, then I try again, then I can
  go one further again, so Place>Network>Windows Network>MSHome>Server,
  but then it is blank. This continues until I can finally get to the
  folders and everything is ok.

  If I shutdown instead of hibernate and then restart, this problem
  never occurs....

  I am using a wireless connection, but I wait until I get the Connected
  notification before I do anything, so I definatley have network

  The logs dont seem to show anything relevant, but I may be wrong.
