Re: ipod nano and udev mounting not working

A rule like that doesn't mount anything - it justs create the /dev/ipod node. Automounting can be done in various ways - udev can do it on its own, or you can use ivman, gnome volume manager, etc. I've never bothered with it myself, but if you do a search around the forum, you'll find some options.

Re: ipod nano and udev mounting not working

thanks, but my first concern is to get this device working.
here is the problem:
I i have a windows formatted nano, trying to connect to gtkpod on archlinux 0.7.1
this is in my fstab:

/dev/ipod  /mnt/ipod  vfat  sync,nodev,nosuid,user,rw,noauto 0 0

this is in my /etc/udev/rules.d/10-ipod.rules:

BUS=="scsi", SYSFS{vendor}="Apple*", SYSFS{model}="iPod*", KERNEL="sd?2", NAME="%k", SYMLINK+="ipod", MODE="0660", GROUP="users"

i appearently don't have a iTunesDB on it, coz that's what gtkpod complains about. also when i try to create on form the file menu
"create iPod directories" it gives me permisson denied. if i start gtkpod as root it doesn't give errors but it also doesn' write anything to the ipod.
what can i do to make this thing work?
any help is greatly appreciated,
Thank you,

Re: ipod nano and udev mounting not working

check /mnt/ipod is does have root:root .... as I say you need to be in storage group to allow write access

As Tomk states you can use ivman pmount hal dbus etc.... but udev should do the trick....

just checked .... pmount /dev/mp3player mounts my mp3player & I have write access

HTH

Re: ipod nano and udev mounting not working

does anybody else have an idea?
I can't believe it's so hard to get this ipod thing working.
I am just wondering why no one else is having the same issue, i mean this must have been discussed before, but i can't find the same problem in the forum.

Re: ipod nano and udev mounting not working

Just for anyones info, vladuz976 is also getting some assistance on the mailing list.

http://www.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch … 09381.html

The udev rule above is a working one that I use for my iPod. No need to change it. It is not intended to do automounting, i just posted it as an extra to make manual mounting easier.

For automounting, you need to use ivman or something similar. Worry about that after the ipod is working. If you follow the instructions listed on my email posts, everything should be fine.

Re: ipod nano and udev mounting not working

if anybody is intersted or has the same problem i had.  iphitus's suggestion in the mailing list did it.
here it goes:

/etc/udev/rules.d/10-ipod.rules:

BUS=="scsi", SYSFS{vendor}="Apple*", SYSFS{model}="iPod*", KERNEL="sd?2", NAME="%k", SYMLINK+="ipod", MODE="0660", GROUP="storage"

/etc/fstab:

/dev/ipod /mnt/ipod vfat noatime,noauto,user,umask=000,quiet,exec 0 0

run mount /mnt/ipod and everthing works fine in gtkpod.

Thanks a lot for the help everyone.
