View Full Version : [ubuntu] Samba Problems....

June 28th, 2008, 04:40 PM
Dear all,

Hardy is giving me a hard time with Samba....

Since the last update I am experience even bigger problems with Samba then ever.

My video and music collecton is on a NAS device (Synology), providing samba shares. Every correctly setup, as with other clients accessing them is no problem. Well, nothing changed in the last few weeks/months anyway. Working fine.

Now I can not even view a video with Totem from the share. Giving me

An error occurred:
Could not read from ressource".

Update: Starting totem with terminal and drag'n drop a file from the share gives the following error:

** Message: Error: Could not read from resource.
gstgnomevfssrc.c(683): gst_gnome_vfs_src_create (): /play/source:
Failed to read data: Invalid parameters

Or Rhythmbox just stops in the middle of a track, trying to jump to the next, and then crash after a few tries to go to the next track. Starting Rhythmbox from the terminal, I receive the following error messages:

connection_message_func(): Callback
CALLBACK: fill-authentication!!!

Password to the share is stored in the keyring.

Something seems really wrong here....
As said, worked before...

Any ideas, please? Any help is very much appreciated.

I was just looking for the solution to this problem that has been bugging me for weeks and I read that it has been fixed. Sure enough it has.
My thanks to the devs too. :)
