Can xbmc connect to your server normally?
what happens when you restart xbmc? (Not reboot)
It may be because your network connection has not been established yet. Thats if you are referring to your OS startup.

Come one over and check out my setup. It works great. I have all me media on a whs vail server sharing via samba. I setup MySQL and also symlinked all the HTPS's thumbnails directory to the server as well. Al HTPCs are setup to update on startup so when I startup XBMC any new media is automatically scanned into the database etc. Since the directorys are symlinked, any computer can scan an item in and all will have instant access to the relevant covers, pics, etc. I can pause a show in the living room and resume it in the bedroom. All media and metadata is consistent across all pc's and it works without hitch.

Anyone have a guide to get this working in Ubuntu?
I have installed mysql server and set everything up, but it only works locally. My other computers have no library and are slow.
I guess there is something with rights. I have looked at the bind to ip setting. It was set to 127.0.0.1, and after trying 192.168.1.101 (local ip) and 0.0.0.0 it does not work in ubuntu localy or remote.
Strangely, now my Win7 PC can use the database, movies and tvshows are there. But they dont work since I use a smb://ip/share/folder/ path.

when i first saw this i thought it would be too complicated but it`s unbelievably easy!!!!
My only "problem" is that the recentlyadded script doesn`t work anymore but i can live with that

Two scripts randomitems and recentlyadded need some changes in order to work.
you need to change everything in the form

just commenting out that line in the mysql conf will allow other devices to access the mysql port.
bind-address = 127.0.0.1
#bind-address = 127.0.0.1
as for your other issue, i think its as others have mentioned: you have to specify that samba share as your media location on every instance of xbmc, including the one that serves the mysql database.

I'm facing the same library update problem here...
Anyone knows the solution?

Im using dharma beta3 with default skin and recentlyadded seems to work fine for me.
Update on startup works for me also, however it seems like tvdb and other scrapers timeout way too soon.
