Description Sebastian Wagner 2019-08-18 07:16:10 UTC

according to the documentation of davfs2 (/usr/share/doc/packages/davfs2/README) two steps must be taken to setup a mount:

> - Non-root users can only mount using the normal mount program. There must
>   also be an entry in /etc/fstab. This can only be done by root.

> - To mount a WebDAV resource users must be member of dav_group (default is
>   group 'davfs2'). The administrator may use group membership to allow or
>   disallow mounting of WebDAV resources.

I did both, for the latter:

> groups
users davfs2 vboxusers

However, I do get this error when mounting as normal user:

> mount synced
/sbin/mount.davfs: program is not setuid root: No such file or directory

In the changelog I found a potentially related bug #907662 but I get an access denied error.

I guess that either some file permission on the mount.davfs file is not correct, or the documentation is wrong.

I assigned to bug to the maintainer as there is no specific bugowner.
