mktunes hangs - iPod shuffle on 9.04 Jaunty

Asked by Jerry West on 2009-09-22

In case anyone else comes across this...

mktunes (part of gnupod-tools) hangs when updating an iPod shuffle on Ubuntu.

A workaround is described here: http://<email address hidden>/msg00009.html

According to this message

  http://<email address hidden>/msg00010.html

the fix is in GNUpod/SysInfo.pm, fixed by upstream commit on 2009-04-07.

Thanks,
  Jerry

There are also bugs filed against mktunes for Jaunty, claiming it doesn't (cannot) work. I don't know about that - the above workaround got my (old-style) Shuffle up and running. Rgds, Jerry
