    [ubuntu] Re: Transfering symlink targets over sftp

    Thanks for the suggestion! That's actually what I've been doing (except I used fstab) while trying to work out a better solution.

    [ubuntu] Re: Transfering symlink targets over sftp

    Bumping this. To recap, when browsing an sftp mount, opening symlinks on the host are just transmitting the links, not the file to which the links point.

    [ubuntu] Re: USB slow transfer rate

    [ubuntu] Re: USB slow transfer rate

    Same here. It starts out at 30 MByte/s until cache fills up, then it goes down to a few hundred kByte/s. What's even more annoying is that the whole system stops to a crawl: Every 5-10 seconds almost...
