Description Alexander Larsson 2006-11-21 07:59:53 EST
The libgpod version we're shipping currently is quite old. It doesn't support
newer ipods, nor does it support old ipods that have been used with iTunes 7 (in
fact, that causes rhythmbox to crash). It also has several crasher bugs reported
against it.

As only rhythmbox in RHEL5 depends on this I propose that we upgrade it to a new
version (0.4.0 or possibly 0.4.1 if that gets released).

We're planning to do the same in an FC6 update, but that is a bit more tricky,
since we released FC6 with the older version and they are not ABI compatible.
See bug 211648 for details.

Any chance we can get a qa ack on this?
Without it rhythmbox crashes whenever you access a recent ipod or any ipod used
with iTunes7.
