Re: [Banshee-List] ipod nano null model


Cheers for that. At least I know its not just me. My ipod is 4th
Generation black 4GB nano. Normally, this generation was happy using the
sysinfo file to retrieve the serial/model, but I purposely connected it to
itunes 7.0 on a friend's PC so that I can update my code to correctly find
the model, using the sgutils method inside libipoddevice.

The weird thing is that it is not like the ipod is having problems. Hal
just seems to ignore the WriteipodInfo function although it is just a
default install. Does Hal need some extra config on distros in order to
correctly detect the existence of the fdi policy file?

The only other thing I could think of was I have a rule in udev for
mounting my ipod, ie. create the device node /dev/ipod for the 2nd
partition of the ipod (/dev/sda2). I was wondering whether this is how
other people mount their ipods? I notice Aaron you have a device node of
/dev/sdc3. Does that mean your ipod has 3 partitions?

Thanks and Regards

Laws are partly formed for the sake of good men, in order to instruct them
how they may live on friendly terms with one another, and partly for the
sake of those who refuse to be instructed, whose spirit cannot be subdued,
or softened, or hindered from plunging into evil. [The Laws, Plato]
