okay, after some hours of digging googling trying and reading i have to ask you guys. I'll try to get to the point:
My setup: white light 1TB with lots of mods (pyload, transmission etc.) eferything working fine. now i attached a 1TB usb HD (3,5 with power) and i ended formatting it to ext3 and mounting it by hand upon reboot.
so far all fine.
Now i created a symbolic link under one of the shares (/shares/Public/usbdisk), took care of the permissions etc. and that exhibits the following behaviour:
- On a mac (mounted the samba share) it works as intended
- On my Win7 machine, when i COPY to the linked dir directly, it says connection lost, try again. curiously, when i create an empty file, then edit it (text file) it works! other dirs (which are not linked to the usb disk) are fine.
I am out of tricks here. i cnt even think of what to google for.
Anyone with ideas or a related experience?
