Fast Write Slow Read
Just upgraded to 8.0.1 beta 4, and found that my write speed has improved by about 7MB/s. I got 51.5MB/s for a 3254MB file. When i tried reading the file I was only getting around 8-10MB/s. For the same file I used to get 56.1MB/s.
Any ideas or is it just cause its still Beta??
Did a clean install on beta 4. All went ok except for when I tried adding an apple share. I had my volume setup and user account but when i chose an appleshare it would not show me a path to my volume. Also i just put in /mnt/Volumes1 into the field as volume1 was the name of my storage, but then wouldn't let me set it. it was asking for in red that I needed to fill out other fields such as Read only access, write only access, share password etc. there were others but i can't remember them.
Is there anyway of fixing this issue or is it a beta4 bug?
Same thing with CIFS shares, mounted volumes are not browsable when setting up the share, if you manually try to add the volume the system will not save it.
hey mate i fixed my by deleting freenas off the usb by reformatting it to FAT 32 or what ever then reinstalled beta 4 now it seems to work for me. Not sure why
I have just successfully gotten freenas (8.0.3 p1) to serve up my m4v files to my Roksbox. I noticed that the freenas UI lets you access the media directory pretty freely, so I created a symbolic link to my movie files there. Here's what I did:

create a symbolic link to your media. In my case it was the following line:
ln -s /mnt/d0/movies/M4V movies
mount -ru /
exit out of freenas.
Set media root folder to "media"
Set video folder path to "movies"
I use an xml file to keep all the movies. For each movie in the xml file, the path starts with media/movies/
And it just works. Hopefully it still will after the next reboot.
Update: It actually didn't work after the next reboot. However, once I got that sorted out I made a HOWTO page.
