Well I just had to reinstall Gentoo last night because I messed a few things up -- which I have a bad habit of doing ;)
Anyway, for some reason unknown to me I decided that DevFS would be a good idea.
So I used DevFS, and my iPod mini is no longer recognized.
I can have it plugged in at boot or plug it in afterwords, but no dice.
I've tried switching to udev (what I used on my prior installation where my mini worked) but that doesn't work either..
It doesn't show up in dmesg except for the kernel recognizing that something got plugged in.
The screen on the iPod doesn't go to "Charging" or even "Don't Disconnect", it just goes to the main menu...
