[Gluster-users] vfs_fruit and extended attributes

Hello list.  I’m attempting to improve how Samba shares directories on our Gluster volume to Mac users by using the vfs_fruit module.  This module does wonders for speeding listings and downloads of directories with large numbers of files in the Finder, but it kills uploads dead.  Finder gives an error:

The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “[filename]” can’t be read or written.
(Error code -36)

The man page for the module indicates that the vfs_streams_xattr module must also be loaded, like this:

vfs objects = fruit streams_xattr

I’ve done this, and I’ve futzed with various combinations of options, but haven’t got writes working.  This issue seems specific to Gluster, as I can share a directory that’s not in the Gluster volume and it works fine.  I’m guessing the problem has something to do with extended attributes, but, near as I can tell, the Gluster volume ought to do xattrs just fine, as its bricks are XFS.

Anyone have any experience with this?  Anyone have vfs_fruit working with Gluster?
