    You can also try amaroK for syncing in the latest beta. I had FC5 and my nano synced without problems.

    There should be something named "devices" in the left sidebar. Click there and enter the mount point of your ipod (you ipod is mounted automatically by Fedora, right?). Usually a folder in /media with the name of your ipod. And set to ipod when in the same sidebar.

    Then just drag and drop the songs you want.

    Did you install libgpod before installing the rpm?

    Hi all, my iPod nano is not mounted automatically by Fedora 5. When I plug it in, it appears under /dev/sda2, which I manually mount in /mnt/ipod. After that, I am unable to whether start gtkpod nor amarok! For Amarok, I get the following error:

    Could not launch the mail client: KDEInit could not launch 'kmail'.

    Can anyone help?
    Thanks
