Re: Problems with iPod



It's an iPod Nano that worked fine with the previous kernel and app's.
I'm a newbie and so can't tell you exactly what I had before (it
worked, why would I record it<G>) - all I know was that it was running
2.6.17 and all upgrades were in place. When 2.6.18 came out I decided
to redo my partitions (bad initial planning) so saved /home to an
external drive, blew everything away and installed again, upgrading
straight to 2.6.18 from 2.6.15, installed Amerok and gtkpod etc, at
present the yum gui tells me I have no updates available.

If I run gtkpod, mount the iPod, and try to sync it I get the
following error message from gtkpod:

'/media/disk/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesDB' does not exist. Import aborted

It does exist...

If I run gtkpod with the iPod already mounted it fails immediately,
the only error is "segmentation fault"

as to which versions I have at present:

libgpod-0.3.0-2.2
gtkpod-0.99.4-1.lvn5
amarok-1.4.3-6.fc5

Where I got them - standard repositories I assume, I don't know enough
to be grabbing from funky ones. I assume the gtkpod was from Livna,
could that be a problem?

My message logs around that time show the following:

What, if any, errors are there when gtkpod segfaults?

More details.  You say a previous install, so more has changed than
just the kernel then, correct?  If so, what was your previous install
and what is your current install (versions of Fedora)?  What versions
of amarok, gtkpod, and libgpod do you have?  Did you get them from
Fedora (and Livna for gtkpod) or from another repository?

(The version of libgpod included in Fedora is pretty ancient and many
many bugs have been fixed in more recent versions.  That would be my
first suspect.  I've been using libgpod and gtkpod from CVS forever
now and it works splendidly.  The latest releases of gtkpod and libgpod
are pretty recent, so they might be worth checking out.)

Also, what model of ipod do you have?
