Unable to mount share from Elementary OS

Unread post by chris@dubea.org » Sun Aug 12, 2018 6:02 pm

All,

Very neophyte Linux user here, so please use small words :)

I've got Elementary OS (an Ubuntu fork) set up on a Dell laptop mainly for experimentation purposes.

What I'd like to do is use it to evaluate the capabilities of Darktable and determine if it's a suitable replacement for Lightroom.

I can access my Synology DS918+ quite nicely with the file manager, but Darktable cannot see the NAS as I need to physically mount a share, and therein lies the rub.

I've gone through the steps shown on this page :https://www.synology.com/en-us/knowledg ... etwork_NFS

When I enter the mount command, I'm asked for the password to root@//XXXX/photo/:
Entering in the admin password I'm told "mount error(95): Operation not supported"

Help!

chris

how do you NFS settings look like (from the DSM side)? If you can access your NAS via SSH then you can also paste etc/exports file content. It could be that you have problems with a insecure_locks parameter

Well, this has suddenly become a non-issue.

The laptop that I had Elementary installed on when Tango Uniform last week. Some diagnostics indicate it's a system board failure.

I'l come back to this post in a bit, when I have a Linux machine at my disposal to futz with it.

Thanks!

from linux, just use the standard samba way of sharing over SMB, very simple and it always works.
Many tutorials on internet, auto mounting.
Please share if a reply was useful or how the issue was solved, it helps other DS users.
