After working fine for years I fired my MyBook up and couldn't connect over samba.
The machine would just freeze for 10s and then a few seconds freeze again.
I connected over ssh and killed a few things until it stopped. After killing inetd the machine stopped freezing. I still can't connect over samba but I can now copy the files onto another harddrive.
I would like to get the machine working again but I am not a linux guru and am not sure what I should do next.
