I wanted to reconfigure an old PC to be a music server connected to our
HIFI.  It took 3 days and 7 attempts to successfully install 18.04 due
to an issue with installing on PC with multiple drives.  It refused to
correctly write the GRUB boot loader to the same partition it itself
installed Ubuntu to. I had to strip out all the drives to get round the
problem to now discover I cannot connect to the Music media on my main
Windows 10 PC due to this SMB issue.  I got round it by the connect to
server option and bookmark option but Kodi cannot see the share or index
the Music.  Now I'm off to Kodi support.

Using Ubuntu since 2008 it seem that every release for me has bugs affecting 
core features such as USB Wireless card support, Sound, DVD burning software 
and display adapter support.  I cannot understand how the platform can be 
released with such fundamental feature broken.
No problem for those who are expert but for mass use users stuffing around for 
hours on forums searching out solutions is not a viable option.
