Hope this is in the right section, so here goes.
I've got a fresh install of VL 5.8 SOHO ( very, very impressed ).
On my network, I also have a Maxtor Shared storage 500Mb NAS box.
I can see this, along with it's shares, when I type 'smbtree'.
I then created a directory in my Home folder called Nas, and mounted it thus;
/usr/bin/smbmount //nasboxname/share /home/nas
I can see, browse and open my files from this mount point.
However, when I try and open an mp3 on the share, using amarok, it spays about a second of the file, and then stalls. The amarok icon in the panel just constantly shows the egg timer. However, if I open the same file using VLC, all is fine, and I can skip through a 190Mb ish mix without freezes or any problems.
The reason I wouldn't mind getting amarok working is because of the nifty desktop widget in Karumba (SP?)that shows cpu usage, etc, as this has amarok controls on it, which looks nifty
So, not a massive problem, but has anyone got any thoughts?
