Thumbnail cache and the NSLU
Why is it when I access my NSLU with a directory full of images it takes forever to recompute the thumbnails? Aren't these suppose to be cached in the Thumbs.db file?
It would seem SAMBA doesn't always play nicely. http://gavinbenda.com.au/2007/10/16/windows-xp-thumbs-db-on-samba-shares/
This translates to having to perform the following on my SLUG.
-bash-3.2# pwd /etc/samba -bash-3.2# cat user_smb.conf # Allow thumb.db to be created nt acl support = no -bash-3.2#
So now that the Thumbs.db files are being created I really don't care to see them. This requires a modification to the /etc/samba/smb.conf file the crucial line is the hide files directive.
