Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hello - This is my first interaction with Linux. I recently purchased a Raspberry Pi 2 and am running the full version of Raspbian. I intend to use the Pi as my PLEX media server however I have been unsuccessful in mounting my NAS. I've read a number of guides on how to accomplish this but have been striking out on all accounts. I was hoping someone could help me with what information I should be adding.
NAS - Synology Diskstation DS212j - 192.168.5.195
Linux device - Raspberry Pi 2 - Raspbian - 192.168.5.186
Router - D-Link DIR-655 - 192.168.5.1
I've been accessing the Pi via ssh on my MacBook PRO - 192.168.5.188
It looks like your NAS requires a user name and password to mount shares, which you have not specified. You should google around for how to mount a CIFS share with a user name and password, which may help. Alternatively, you can enable the NFS services on your NAS and mount via NFS, which tends to be a bit more straightforward. NFS is a *nix native protocol whereas CIFS comes from the Windows world.
You have enabled windows file sharing on the NAS but did you create a share folder yet? I would suggest using NFS instead of cifs but anyway the guide you posted is a bit vague. Make sure the directorys i.e. /home/pi/myNAS/myShare used for the mount point actually exist.
The user and password should be one that was created on the NAS. Also make sure the NAS is configured with a static IP address or you can setup a IP reservation on the router.
Frankly I'm at a loss. I followed your steps and even tried this tutorial: http://www.robertsetiadi.net/raspber...re-on-startup/ and had no luck. Below is a screenshot of my fstab. I did place the username and password I created for my Raspberry Pi (on my Diskstation) in the appropriate fields and now I'm getting an error "username specified with no parameter" error. I've included a screenshot of the error and i did confirm that my share folders were created
