fusesmb, sometimes called "FuseSmb" or "SMB for Fuse", is a Linux program which mounts the local Samba workgroup in a single folder, essentially replicating the Microsoft Windows "Network Neighborhood" in a Linux environment.
When the mount gets munged and refuses to divulge any information about itself ("ls -al" shows a lot of question marks, and you may get the message "Transport endpoint is not connected"), the only solution seems to be rebooting – unless setting up a new mount folder under a different name is acceptable.
- You can't rmdir or chmod the folder, even as root
- You can't umount it
- You can't run fusesmb on it again
- Killing the fusesmb process doesn't help
- lsof refuses to divulge any information
- lsmod doesn't show a "fuse" module, nor will modprobe install one
