Thanks very much for the response. Yes, the player will stop mid stream and I get a buffering wheel for a period of time and then an error that the player can’t connect to my server. The only way to reconnect is for me to restart the server.
I don’t see any crashes mentioned with either of the methods you suggested. I’m new to Linux, so I wasn’t aware of the kernel bug. I’ve just been running periodic updates with the sudo apt-get update/sudo apt-get upgrade method. Thought it might be firmware, so I tried to check the firmware with another method earlier today, but it told me mine was up to date. I just used rbi-update and it looks like it bumped me forward a few versions. Hopefully that will do the trick. Off to watch a movie for a while to see if it makes a difference.
