This isn't a bug.

When you build a program from the sources and install them it will be installed in the /usr/local tree and not in /usr. This is to keep it apart from the packages of your distribution and the package management system will not touch the /usr/local tree.

You can change this when you configure the package with option --prefix (see ./configure --help) if you need to (not recommended).

"man mount.davfs" will show you all the files used by davfs2.

[field #13] Summary: secrets file not used
[field #14] Original Submission: I compiled and installed the latest davfs2 version 1.5.4 on Ubuntu.

With version 1.5.2 the ~/.davfs2/secrets file was used but now I get a prompt to enter the credentials manually.

To get it work I now use this workaround:

echo -ne 'username\npassword\n' | mount -t davfs https://storage.stackstorage.com/remote.php/webdav/ /mnt/stack

But imo davfs2 should use the secrets file instead like 1.5.2 did.

It seems when running a make install the default location for the settings file is /usr/etc/dav2fs instead of /etc/dav2fs while the dav2fs from apt-get uses /etc/dav2fs.

This confused me.
