    Apple iPod Nano

    Hmm, thanks for the quick reply, I just rebooted into Windows because the iPod was showing the "Use iTunes to repair" message, and restored the firmware/software on it, rebooted right back into Mandy.. and now I'm not getting anything, the dmesg shows it, but its not being mounted anymore, also, whilst in Windows, i noted that the iPod was using "Windows" as the file system... do I need to convert that to FAT? I cannot find decent instructions anywhere, if there is a somewhat simple solution i would like to know.. if it requires building a time machine, I will just return it.. usb-storage: device found at 5 usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning Vendor: Apple Model: iPod Rev: 1.62 Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 00 SCSI device sda: 1982464 2048-byte hdwr sectors (4060 MB) sda: Write Protect is off sda: Mode Sense: 68 00 00 08 sda: assuming drive cache: write through SCSI device sda: 1982464 2048-byte hdwr sectors (4060 MB) sda: Write Protect is off sda: Mode Sense: 68 00 00 08 sda: assuming drive cache: write through sda: sda1 sda2 sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi removable disk sda sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 0 usb-storage: device scan complete There appears to be nothing at /dev/sda [root@localhost Desktop]# /dev/sda bash: /dev/sda: Permission denied [root@localhost Desktop]# cat /proc/scsi/scsi Attached devices: Host: scsi2 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00 Vendor: Apple Model: iPod Rev: 1.62 Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02 No idea where to go from here...

    Apple iPod Nano

    So i thought i would buy my son an iPod for christmas, get it home and decide to load some music on it. plug it in... X crashes... reboot the machine, plug it back in, do a Google search, and find out i should use GtkPod... so i install GtkPod, soon as i go to iPod, the program crashes, i reopen it, soon as i click "Load iPod", program crashes... so i try the other alternative, Banshee, ANY change i make at ALL to any songs, whether i add or delete, does not take place, nothing happens at all, so then I try amaroK, and all i get is errors about it being a read only file system. HOW PATHETIC! EVERY person you know these days has a bloody damn iPod, why the DAMN HELL does Linux not have proper support for an iPod? i find this ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING... and quite SAD, VERY VERY sad indeed. the fact that a user has to go to such extreme lengths to get his or her damned iPod to have music on it, how very sad. NONE of the applications mentioned work, searched google high and low, to find jack all. ..... Pathetic. Very disappointed.
  4. tried logging out and in.. nothing [root@localhost smsbomber]# source /etc/profile bash: TMOUT: readonly variable
  5. im trying to run smsbomber but i keep getting this error msg. Cannot find the w3c command line tool! Download it from: http://www.w3.org/ComLine/ Make sure it is in your PATH as well i installed the w3c command line tool rpm, and then built the source still same error message, what the hell is the god damn PATH [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  6. i have an advent 6419, and i've installed mandriva 2007 on it, everything says [OK] and then it just goes to a black screen, i picked the right graphics card, SiS 630, and even tried 800x600 with 16bpp and even vgalo, graphics card has 8mb shared memory. wanted to run mandriva on this since windows is shit, but seeing as X can't even run, i dont know anymore.

    Linksys Bluetooth

    i'm trying to send files from my phone to my comp via bluetooth... i connected the bluetooth and went to mcc and under hardware, it told me that packages needed to be installed, after installing them, it made a "Communications" item in "More Applications" in my menubar, and theres "kbtobex client" & "kbtserialchat" I tried both of them, and none of them bring up anything, also when i start mcc in the konsole and go to the Bluetooth in Hardware, i see this: [root@localhost Desktop]# Warning: skip "name" field => "USB Bluetooth Device" Warning: skip "need_pkgs_offered_by_club" field => "0" Warning: skip "sysfs_device" field => "/sys/class/usb_device/usbdev3.2/device"

    3d desktop

    so i go to mcc > hardware > 3d desktop and enable, asks me to logout, fine, i logout, first time i had no idea i had to change the session to "drak3d" so im logging into gnome, thinking wtf. ok second time, i change the session to drak3d, log in, asks me for root password, then the config tool thing comes up again, i click ok, and then it asks me to logout and do ctrl+alt+backspace to restart X i guess. ok so i do that, make drak3d the session, and log in, and it just repeats itself! FFS, and this time, after saying "you need to log out and press ctrl+alt+backspace" it just left me hanging at the mandriva screen, with a cursor, and thats it.
