comment Network file sharing between Linux and OS X
This is an old question, and I would like to accept this answer, but I can't, because of the issue in my previous comment. I got around to testing it in between two linux machines --- just to rule out problems with the network connection --- and it worked great. It's just OS X that has latency problems...

comment Network file sharing between Linux and OS X
so getting it set up was a breeze. however, it does not behave the way i would like it to, in that the connection has too much latency, regardless of throughput. for example, i get a 100K/s connection to the server from work, which should be enough for playing most music on the fly. however, every time the track changes the music player will freeze for about 20 seconds while the next song is downloading and only starts playing it when it's about done with the transfer. is there any way to avoid this?

What if I were to tunnel the traffic through ssh?

Can I mount a remote FTP folder such that it looks exactly like a local folder to local applications? I was under the impression that, to access files on an ftp server, I need to first download them to a local folder.

comment udev weirdness: /dev/hda1 mounted but file not present
Turns out the entry is in /dev/disk/by-uuid/22083dc6-fef3-4134-a60a-ea862385b0d5. All the rule files are there, last modified on Dec 4th. Deleted all the custom rules from /etc/udev/rules.d/ that seemed to have been automatically created by something and now the CD behaves normally. Thanks!

comment Detecting headphone connection/disconnection in Linux
My idea might be too low-level, but you could figure out the interrupt vector for the event (from the soundcard documentation/drivers perhaps?) and then modify the interrupt service routine for that vector to call a system call that does whatever you want it to do.
