I'm running Fedora Core 2 (kernel 188.8.131.52) with Samba 3.0.6 on an AMD
750MHz w/256MB RAM. 100Mbit network, 3c905b.
When trying to play files from a W2K share, the sound "skips" all the
time. There is no extra network activity and my computers is quite idle
when this happens.
Copying files to/from the W2K computer is fast enough; 4.3MB in 5-6
seconds ought to be fast enough for my 128Kbit/sec-encoded MP3 files. :)
Here's the relevant data from the smb.conf file:
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = DRUID
server string = Linux
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
log level = 0
max log size = 128
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
max xmit = 32768
getwd cache = yes
dns proxy = no
password server = none
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
I've tried messing with these settings quite much, without results. The
problems arise no matter which player I use; xmms or rhythmbox.
I tried to ask this question in a Samba related group, but failed to
receive any answers there.
