View Full Version : [ubuntu] nfs mount in fstab doesn't work (does in 10.04)

November 27th, 2010, 11:41 AM

I installed 10.10 yesterday and all seemed fine. Now I made an NFS mount in /etc/fstab like I use to in 10.04

Kaapstad:/admin /mnt/Kaapstadadmin nfs defaults 0 0

but get this:

# mount -a
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on Kaapstad:/admin,
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

In /mnt, /etc/hosts everything is set as should be. In other posts I'm reading other problems with nfs as well. Is there a bug?

Install the "nfs-common" package on the client.

Thank. Solved.
