Re: Rhythmbox and autofs - is this a bug?

I'm sharing music files from a F8 box using nfs4 and autofs on the F8
client. It seemed to work well at first, then I realised the mount was
timing out and Rhythmbox was 'losing' the files. I thought to work
around this with a wrapper script that does

cd /server/MUSIC

I launch the script instead of rhythmbox directly.

By chdir into the served directory I hoped to keep the files visible,
but it seems that they are still lost from Rhythmbox sometimes.

So, am I doing the right thing, or could rhythmbox do more to work
with autofs mounts? Should I be serving up the files differently?


I don't have an answer for you, but is rhythmbox losing access to the files while it is reading them or just after some time of being idle?
