How did you install gtkpod?  Packages?  (If so, from where?)  Tarball?
What versions of libgpod and gtkpod do you have?

The libgpod and gtkpod packages for current fedora releases will
probably rebuild fine for Fedora 7 (though you're really on your own
running an EOL release).  Though with the 8gig video nanos I think
cover flow isn't working using the libgpod-0.6.0 package that's in F-9
and F-10.  You might have better luck rebuilding the libgpod-0.7.0
packages from rawhide┬╣.

Basically, if you install things the way the current Fedora packages
do, then things should "Just Work."  If they don't, you can do things
manually by following the steps in README.SysInfo in the libgpod
tarball or package.
