I have installed 0710 RC2 and are struggling with getting it to detect media on my windows shares.
I have scoured the forum and have found a lot of information about shares not mounting but I don't beleive that to be cause of my problems. The reason I say this is because I am able to see files on /mnt/device/32/public/data/audio and I am able to play .mp3 files from there using Amarok
I don't know if it is relevant or not but my setup includes two NICs, i.e an 'Internal LAN' configuration. I did this because I still wanted the Windows PCs to communicate with each other via my Linux WRT54GS wireless router and get their IP from the DHCP server running on that. I followed the instructions on the wiki page (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Internal_LAN_setup
One thread which offered a lot of pointers was http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?;topic=4260.0
, in particular, the debugging suggestions provided by colinjones on Feb 10, 2008 were very useful. However I was still unable to figure out what I'm doing wrong.
When I first installed LMCE it did not detect my shares automatically, so I had to setup the shares manually, following the instructions on the wiki (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Howto:_Using_Network_Shares
). I added the share using the manual method, as soon as I completed the steps to add the shares, LMCE detected it and asked me what file structure I wanted it to use, I selected 'use LMCE file structure'. I chose not reload the router at that point. Instead I switched to KDE desktop and ran the configuration script (Configure_1837.sh) and it was able to mount my share. I checked the messages and for the share that I just added and did not not notice any errors. (For the shares which I told LCE I did not want it to use I could see that it failed to mount these, but I assume that is ok)
Next I went in the orbiter to check if it had detected the media files on my Windows share but no files were showing up. I waited for about 30 minutes but still nothing.
I went to the LinuxMCE admin site and could see my Windows share listed but it did not list any files. I selected the option to 'resync' media, which it ran without any errors. However, when I went back into the orbiter no audio files are were listed. I tried a reload of the orbiter but it didn't help.
Then the last thing I attempted was to delete the server in LMC admin site. Again, LMCE did not detect it automatically so I had to do the manual install of the server. This time when I did the resync thing it printed out many more messages (none of them were errors) but nowhere did it report that it had found any files. Again, in the orbiter I still don't see any media.
At this point I am about out of ideas and wondering if my problems are due to some fundamental limitation when using the Internal LAN setup?
I keep scouring these forums but cannot find anything which applies to the problem which I am seeing. However, I am bit of a noob here and I appologise if I have missed the obvious.
thanks in advance for your help
