Question ipodder worked yesterday not today

Hi guys,

I'm running Edubuntu (ubuntu 6.06) on my Toshiba laptop. Yesterday I installed and used ipodder v. 2.1.9-4. Worked just fine. Today I booted up and ipodder fails after the splash screen. I have tried starting it in both gnome and kde with the same results.

Here is the output when I try starting from the command prompt:

pennyg@pennytoy:~$ ipodder
[<class 'ipodder.players.XMMSPlayer'>, <class 'ipodder.players.NoPlayer'>]
Traceback (most recent call last):

return _controls_.ListCtrl_InsertStringItem(*args, **kwargs)
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode bytes in position 1-3: invalid dat a


Well, I can't "decode" what the problem is from that. Can anyone help?

Many thanks ...

Unhappy "Fixed" it

I don't know what was wrong but I uninstalled the program, deleted the .ipodder folder in the home folder and then installed again. It now works but it did before so we'll see if it works tomorrow.


codec, utf8
