Hi Pierre,

Sure. The exact response is:

rlemmon@parton ~$ sudo mount -t nfs
mount: /mnt/nas: bad option; for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you
might need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program.
rlemmon@parton ~$

I wondered, after looking in the manual, whether this is a setuid program
issue and so part of the Guix System. So I tried to set this in the .scm
file as a service. However i didn't set any values as i was not sure what
to put ...
