    Angry Really Slow Samba

    Just crossing over from FreeBSD for my file server.

    I updated apt-get and installed samba.
    After all done , i tried to use it.

    Man ive never seen anything this slow must of the time i got 1M and under!!! , And here i was moaning about 14M!

    After more research, it seems it could be samba thats the guilty party.

    iperf revealed 160M throuput with BSD aswell as ubuntu, so no downfall there.

    I have got a realtek 8169 chipset for NIC and i beleve there is an issue with Samba and this chipset.
    Appologies lspci revealed following as NIC...
    "00:07.0 Ethernet controller: D-Link System Inc DGE-528T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (rev 10)"

    Off to check my version i discovered i have version Version 3.0.28a

    However on samba wesite Samba 3.0.30 is already out.

    I did the usual apt-get update
    apt-get install samba

    only to be told i already have latest version.

    FFS i dont!

    Hopying new samba will solve my issues but can't get apt-get to realise new version out.
