Question mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on.....


Hi There,

I've installed a minimal Fedora box and am trying to mount a windows share but get the following issue.

I type:
Quote:
mount -t cifs -o username=*****,password=***** //servername/dnn /home/wsi/dnn
I get:
Quote:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //servername/dnn,
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
Can anyone help or provide some guidance?

Do you have the needed mount.cifs in /sbin, as the error message suggests? Most likely this will not be installed on a minimal install.

I am no Fedora guy, so I don't know which package provides that file. You should be able to look that up with
Code:
yum whatprovides /sbin/mount.cifs
