Description David Nielsen 2008-09-03 06:26:40 UTC
Description of problem:
Podsleuth is currently entirely non-functional on F9, even after the recent rebuild in koji of 0.6.2. I get the following in the debug file:

Pre-Mount Settings:
  - UDI:                    /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_uuid_5481_3F08
  - Block Device:           /dev/sdb2
  - Temporary Mount Point:
  - FS Type:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update podsleuth
2. reboot (to restart hal - please remember to mark updates with the reboot flag in bodhi)
3. run podsleuth
Actual results:
the above error in the debug file

Expected results:
glorious iPod support

Additional info:
I had to seperately install sg3_utils-libs since podsleuth requires it to run but does not pull it in.

Comment 1 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-09-03 18:05:10 UTC
Ah, thanks. I was doing some local builds while working on podsleuth, and so my development machine already has the required libraries installed. Didn't realize that automatic Mono dependency tracking does not work that well.

Comment 2 David Nielsen 2008-09-03 19:34:53 UTC
just to be clear, pulling that in won't fix this issue, it just exposes it since podsleuth otherwise runs to mamma complaining that it is missing

Comment 3 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-09-04 02:33:13 UTC
Bizarre. Have you tried the following?

1. Unplug iPod
2. Restart haldaemon
2. Plug in iPod

As I recall, only then did I manage to get my iPod working. Once podsleuth works, Banshee picks up the iPod perfectly fine.

Comment 4 David Nielsen 2008-09-04 04:58:41 UTC
Now it works, the only change is that in between the last time I tried unplugging, rebooting and plugging is that the machine has been powered off entirely.. odd..

Now to break iPod support..
