I've managed to get online with my new Kubuntu install (6.10) and everything is going pretty well, I can play MP3 files in AmaroK but my problem is that I ...

Remote Server Playback crashing AmaroK
Am I asking too much of it?

I believe this issue happens when the share is not writeable, as amarok needs this for it's library building. I believe this is something to do with the tagging/rating functionality. Do you have write access?

I made a file, and saved it there. I believe I have write access.
This may be part of the problem... but normally you have to use a login to access the share (on Windows) but in Konqueror I'm not asked for anything, I can just go in. Reckon this is any part of the problem or is Windows security even worse than I thought?

1: I have not ever entered details since I installed Kubuntu
2: Yes, it's still there.
I'll check on Windows if it exists.
EDIT: Yes, it exists and I can open it in Windows. It is beyond doubt there!

Sorry I had to ask Sometimes failed file writes appear as files until you refresh.
That's the only issue I have seen with Amarok/Samba. Did you come across this in the amarok wiki? -

mount -t smbfs -o fmask=666,dmask=777,guest //server/share /path/to/mount-point
EDIT: I should say, that code on its own gives me this error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //server/Files, missing codepage or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
//server/share /path/to/mountpoint cifs iocharset=utf8,uid=username,gid=users,guest,file_mode=0444,dir_mode=0555 0 0

This might be part of the problem, AmaroK lists the files from the remote server as "streams" instead of mp3s.
EDIT: Forgive me if I'm being an idiotic newbie, since this weekend I've not used Linux for AGES!

Ok, I believe that I've found the problem. AmaroK sees the files as a stream because they're not local on the SMB protocall. So to get it to work, I'd need to mount the share. Since I'm having so much trouble doing that I've decided to just use MPlayer with a little qui add on for better playlist functionality.
I'm happy for the moment, but if at all possible I'd rather have AmaroK.
