Well, it was more than the few days I thought it would be, but I've
got builds of libgpod-0.7.0rc2, gtkpod-0.99.13SVN and rhythmbox for
F-9 and F-10 (i386 and x86_64) completed.  They're even in a yum repo,
for handy testing:


Just grab the libgpod.repo file and put it in /etc/yum.repos.d, then
update or install libgpod, gtkpod or rhythmbox.  The packages are
signed with the same key I use to sign my mail.  Yum will prompt you
to install this key if you enable the above repository.  The key
fingerprint is 2067 23CE 8C4A 9D39 9FFF  B8E7 4325 938B BEAF 0CE3.

NOTE 1: These builds are only for folks wishing to test the libgpod
release candidates ad while I'm interested in reports of any problems,
I don't have the time to provide a lot of support.

NOTE 2: I have not built all of the things which require libgpod,
notably amarok is not built at this time.  If you use amarok or have
it installed, then you should NOT use the above repo.  (Also not
rebuilt are kipi-plugins, and, from rpmfusion, gnome-mplayer and

If time permits, I'll hopefully get amarok and kipi-plugins added.

And there was just such a bug!  Thanks to Paul for prodding, I've
fixed up the HAL callout in the 0.7.0rc2 packages so that it should
now actually run whenever an iPod is plugged in.

This exposed some SELinux denials, which are fixed for F-10 in
selinux-policy-3.5.13-38.fc10 (in updates-testing).  They are
scheduled to get added to the policy on F-9 as well, but I don't think
that's been committed to the selinux-policy package in CVS yet.  So on
F-9, you'd need to run in permissive mode when plugging in your iPod
for the first time to have the SysInfoExtended file setup.
