Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am using an iPod shuffle, and a Nano, which I have no problems with using GTKiPod.
I thought it was GTKpod and not GTKiPod. Anyway.
Did you mount and umount it correctly? Mounting probably goes right if you get no errors during write, but after that you need to first disconnect it from Amarok (using the toolbar button), and if you haven't configured the post-disconnect commands, then manually umount the iPod device, or if you use KDE (or Gnome), "Safely unmount" the device by right-clicking the desktop icon of the mounted device and taking it out from there. If you don't umount it correctly the data may not actually get written, since in some cases it's really written to the device only when you umount it.
bOuncer: yes, I did disconnect from Amarok and umount. "GTKpod", thanks.
XavierP: I didn't actually compile Amarok myself: just using the version that came with Slackware 11. I will compile the latest version of Amarok soon and see if I get better results.
I don't see how Amarok could detect my iPods, list all songs, and then write to them without iPod support... Anyways, if recompiling is a successful workaround then I will gladly go that route. Thanks.
