i add these on sudo gedit /etc/fstab //192.168.0.119/shared/kamil /mnt/backup cifs guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,codepage=unicode,unicode 0 0 and run the sudo mount -a and i got these error

 mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.0.119/shared/kamil,
 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

and i try the dmesg | tail and here is the result

[   17.552465] EXT4-fs (sda1): re-mounted. Opts: errors=remount-ro,commit=0

Make sure you have smbfs installed, also try removing the codepage=unicode option from fstab, and you may need to add the option username=guest.

  • i cant update my cifs because i think the repo for 11.04 is closed, but i can mount using the manual mount -t on the terminal
