rhythmbox ipod support crashes
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
If an ipod (nano 2gb) is connected to the usb port, rhythmbox crashes (on
startup or running).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Connect an ipod while rhythmbox is running, or execute rhythmbox with an ipod
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional info: there seems that a patch exists for rhythmbox 0.9.4.1, look at
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=352972 attachment. Good luck.
Can you try the updates in testing?
I updated libgpod (to 0.4.0-0), and it works. Thank you.
It seems that the stable libgpod version is too old for ryhthmbox.
For me the bug is pending of a stable release of libgpod compatible with
rhythmbox ipod support.
For now i continue using the testing libgpod version until the stable release.
libgpod 0.4.0 was never packaged for FC6, because its binary incompatible and
doesn't change soname of the library. Running it without rebuilding all apps
that use it risks segfaults.
The updates-testing version is 0.4.2.
ok, i tried it, and it works with 0.4.2 from updates-testing. Thank you again
for the recommendation.
Closing bug. See comment #4. Package "libgpod-0.4.2" is also released with
Fedora release 7.
