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 have an IPOD nano which I have used successfully with Windows XP. What I want to do is to use it with Suse Linux 10.0. So I installed a copy of GTKPOD version 0.99.4 and connected my IPOD. The IPOD icon came up and when I hit the READ button it read in the data and gave a convincing display of the contents of the IPOD. However GTKPOD complained
"iTunesDB '/media/ipod/Pod_Control/iTunes/ItunesDB' does not match checksum in extended information file '/media/ipod/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesDB.ext'
gtkpod will try to match the information using MD5 checksums this may take along time. /media/iPod/iPod_Control/Artwork/ArtworkDB is too big to be a buffer file"
The file list looked OK and there was 1.22 GB free on the IPOD.
I then switched to a the local playlist and READ a file which worked OK.
I then hit SYNC to write the new file to the IPOD and GTKPOD just hangs.
I suspect that I need to sort out the first error before I can make progress on the second. This is my first post and my knowledge of the Linux file system is limited but I did use the Nautilus file manager to look at the directories on the IPOD and I could see the files fine.
What do I check next ? I had a look at earlier postings but they seemed to be about SYNC problems without any read issue.
