Re: [Gnump3d-users] Gnump3d help - will index but not stream

I think I've figured it out...

I discovered the same type of problem when I tried to put a symlink in my www folder for apache. Apparently the mount point for /media/Share gave me read/write access, but no one else. I had assumed that if I set /media/Share/Music to give "others" read only, that this would override the parent folder's permissions, but apparently that's not the case. I set the parent folder to give read only permission to "others", and that seems to have done the trick.

Chalk that one up to me being a Linux noob.

Again, thank you!

Can't imagine that, I have multiple symlinks in my setup pointing to different
partions on various harddrives.

By chance is their a chance that your player is chroot'ed to the /var/music/?
