    How to mount HFS+ network share from OS X volume

    Hey guys, I'm a total noob, setting up a Raspberry Pi running a customized version of Debian called RaspyFi. I tried asking this question on the Raspberry Pi forum but received no response.

    I'm want my Pi to act as a sort of Airport Express for streaming music to it. I've setup everything using the latest RaspyFi build. Locally hosted music (on the SD card) files play fine with mpd and I can stream music to the Pi from my Macs with Shairport. The problem is that I can't get my main music collection to be recognized in mpd because I don't know how to mount the networked volume on Linux.

    I have samba file sharing is setup correctly on my Mac Mini running OS X 10.8.4 but I can't figure out how to get the Pi to mount it. The volume is an external USB drive, formatted HFS+ (non-journaled). I installed hfsprogs as well.

    These are some of the many commands I've tried:

    sudo mount t cifs o username=XXXX,password=XXXX // /mnt/nas
    mount error(22): Invalid argument
    Refer to the mount.cifs( manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

    sudo mount -t hfsplus -o username=XXXX,password=XXXX // /mnt/nas
    mount: special device // does not exist

    sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=XXXX,password=XXXX // /mnt/nas
    mount: unknown filesystem type 'smbfs'

    What am I missing here? I'd really like to get this finished as it's nearly the last piece of the puzzle for this first time Linux user.

    Thank you, that seems to have moved me closer to getting this share mounted! Now I am having a different problem. When I send the above command, I get this response:

    mount.cifs: permission denied: no match for /mnt/nas found in /etc/fstab

    Here is the fstab entry I have associated:
    "// LIBRARY" /mnt/nas cifs username=******,password=******,uid=mpd,file_mode= 0644,dir_mode=0755,iocharset=utf8,rsize=130048,wsi ze=4096 0 0

    Any further ideas?
