I have installed XBMC on my Raspberry Pi (RaspBMC). I have an external HDD connected via USB to my raspberry Pi, which I would like all of my movie content on. Logging into the Raspberry Pi using an SSH, I installed and configured Samba Server using the following guide (All the text is commands used is specified in the Video-notes):
This succesfully got me a setup where my Raspberry Pi was running as a Media Center while allowing me to Map the external content disk to my laptop. However, as it was running NTFS the transferspeed was only ~2.2MB/s. So I formatted my drive into a ext4-filesystem. XBMC is accepting the new filesystem fine, but for some reason I suddently have problems with Samba Server. When I get the status of Samba Server, the smbd deamon is not running. And even as I star or restart samba server, it says "smbd running" but isn't running afterwards.
I haven't been able to find any leads on google in this matter, and I have tryed deleting the configuration and remaing it. The folder on the root, which it should map is still there. Any good guesses why me formatting the HDD and then installing a new filesystem is having an effect on Samba Server?
