For the record here I purchased one of these things
and up to this point it appears to be compatible
with Mandriva 2006. Trying to find documented
compatibility between MP3 Players and Linux is
a bit of a challenge. I sent some messages to
several and got mostly no replies
and in once case a flat out "it won't work" message.

I decided on this particular machine because I own
a SanDisk 512MB Cruser USB drive and Mandriva
recognizes that. So, you would expect that an MP3
Player from the same manufacturer should be the same.
At least in this case, it is.

When you plug the e130 into the USB port Mandriva
recognizes it and places a Sansa e130 icon on the
Mandriva desktop. Opening that presents you with
the same file presentation structure you would
see with the 512MB USB drive. Drag, drop and delete
functions work the same. I do give things a minute
or two to settle before disconnecting the e130.
Do not unmount it as that appears to do awful things.
Also before disconnecting empty the trash and do
not have the Sansa e130 as "focus" on the desktop.
Choose something else or nothing at all, then
disconnect it. Otherwise I think there's some
incompleteness going on there. Especially if you
have deleted something and not emptied the trash.

Since the e130 is functionally the same as the e140
at 1GB of internal memory I would expect that
they would preform the same.
