I think that is a different issue, depending on how you chose to use the shares, you might need to place the content in a certain directory structure. And then you can speed up the process of getting them added to the database by "syncing the media files": web-admin > Files & Media > Media Files Sync > [ data ] (or a subdir in the tree) > Resynchonize.
The problem I had was that I could not actually open (and thus play) the files on the share, I discovered that I could see the contents of the files when I manually mounted them as smbfs
instead of cifs
, changing that in the web-admin didn't do much, hence this very small fix (that most people probably won't need anyway).
Anyway, how to appy it:
cp auto.PlutoStorageDevices auto.PlutoStorageDevices.backup
patch -Ni auto.PlutoStorageDevices-filesystem_fix-1.patch
Copy/paste that into a terminal where you are root and Bob's your uncle
, let me know if you have any trouble with those commands. I have mirrored the patch for convenience, it's the same file as in the link above but that link isn't as wget-able.
The only drawback that I can think of is that now one shouldn't put anything else then cifs
in the web-admin's "FileSystem" field (when empty the default cifs
is used as it always was). Perhaps it would be better to use cifs
isn't explicitly specified. Or the script could be expanded to automaticly handle other (network) filesystems as well should the need arrise. Any thoughts on that are welcome.
It was my pleasure, I hope you guys find it usefull too.
