Mounting an Apple Share on Ubuntu 11.10

I ran into a few problems trying to mount my AFP share (netatalk) being hosted on my Solaris NAS from my Ubuntu 11.10 VM. These are the steps I took to get it to work.

# apt-get install libreadline6 libreadline-dev libreadline6-dev libgcrypt-dev libgmp3-dev libfuse-dev

Then I downloaded the latest version of afpfs-ng and installed from source.

$ ./configure
$ make
# make install

To mount the volume use the following command:

$ mount_afp afp://user:password@192.168.1.101/sharename /media/AFP

It should be noted you can compile, install, and attempt to mount the share but will get the following error without libgcrypt-dev libgmp3-dev packages installed.

Could not pick a matching UAM
