I'm having a lot of issues here in Smoke. When I chose a Volume in the library I get the spinning beach ball. It's very strange some folder I click on I'm able to import footage within that same hard drive I'll chose another folder to import footage from then Smoke crashes.

I follow all the instruction in the link but no success. The NUMLOCALSLAVE already had the # at the start of it. Still crashing.

When I've had similar issues with Smoke ( please note that this was from the perspective of a beginning user) I'd determine/check:
a) no major network changes had occurred recently (known or unknown) static ip etc.

b) restart stop and restart all services in the service monitor

c) if all services restart green....

d) Look at the system checker status for any conflicts

e) If all of the above provide no clues abandon hope of fixing it myself and call tech support.

I've run into these types of issues many times after long periods of stability for no reason that I could immediately pinpoint and having a cursory familiarity with unix did not help. At all times I keep a cloned copy of a known good performing system just for this eventuality. I can continue to work while I troubleshoot.

Good luck.
