Move an iTunes library to a new machine
Authored by: sota on Apr 09, '04 05:04:40AM

Running iTunes off a Samba share works great. I've got a linux server with a massive drive and I keep my Music folder on it and iTunes preferences pointed to it. The copy and organize features of iTunes work fine as well.

FTP doesn't seem to work well enough/consistently yet under the Finder, WebDav works - but can get really slow opening/closing files after they're copied to the server (and likes to cache files locally onto my ibook), AppleShare on linux is a pain to setup and has its own custom database which the rest of the server doesn't seem to like, and I try not to go near NFS.

Samba shares are the best way to fly IMO.
