View Full Version : [ubuntu] Windows (cifs) mounts very slow

June 28th, 2008, 05:07 PM
Hey All,

I finally got all my windows shares working in Hardy. I am also using XBMC I have created my mounts in /home/dvs/media/disk1, 2,3,4 etc..

I can now playback from my server video_ts folders. What I am wondering is everytime I access the shares they take forever to read or to get access to them. This is every time. It is almost like it is not cacheing something or the netwrok setup is wrong somewhere.

The shares are on a windows workgroup lan and the linux machine is still not part of that workgroup - I am wondering if that would make the reading of the mounts any faster. There is no user or password on the file server.

Any thoughts,
