Description Patrick Sefton 2007-02-24 23:26:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.8.0.9) Gecko/20061221 Fedora/1.5.0.9-1.fc5 Firefox/1.5.0.9

Description of problem:
amarok-1.4.5-3.fc5.x86_64 does not contain ipod support.  iPod is not listed as an available media device in Amarok.  The relevant amarok media device plugin (libamarok_ipod-mediadevice.so) is not distributed with amarok-1.4.5-3.fc5.x86_64.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
amarok-1.4.5-3.fc5.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Amarok does not list iPod Media Device in the Select Plugin list of the Add New Device dialog (it lists the following: Generic Audio Player, Music Sharing, Creative Nomad Jukebox, iRiver iFP and MTP).  I expected this list to also contain something like "Apple iPod Media Device".

2. The relevant Amarok media device plugin is not distributed with amarok-1.4.5-3.fc5.x86_64:

$ rpm -q amarok
amarok-1.4.5-3.fc5

$ rpm -ql amarok | grep mediadevice.so
/usr/lib64/kde3/libamarok_daap-mediadevice.so
/usr/lib64/kde3/libamarok_generic-mediadevice.so
/usr/lib64/kde3/libamarok_ifp-mediadevice.so
/usr/lib64/kde3/libamarok_mtp-mediadevice.so
/usr/lib64/kde3/libamarok_njb-mediadevice.so

I expected the above list to also contain
/usr/lib64/kde3/libamarok_ipod-mediadevice.so

Just to let you know what's going on: a new version of libmtp was backported to
FC5, which forced me to upgrade to the latest Amarok, which only supports a
newer version of libgpod that what's available in FC5. Thus, I had to disable
IPod support.

I'm trying to think of a right way to solve that, but it's not obvious.

Sorry, no idea how to fix this, and FC5 is EOL now.
