View Full Version : [ubuntu] mount no longer does what it did

May 5th, 2009, 10:41 AM

after a fresh 9.04 install, my mount command doesn't do what it used to on 8.10.

i have a NAS and i used to type:

sudo mount -t nfs /media/vader

which would mount a folder on the NAS to a local folder.

now, when I type that I get:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

any thoughts?
