Well, I'm not sure a single distribution claiming support makes it a dead issue, but this is certainly something that should be cleaned up as time goes on. Until that happens, hopefully you'll find the article useful.

--Indeed NOT a dead issue. I just recompiled my kernel for the umpteenth time today trying to figure out why my ipod doesn't work anymore. I'm really hoping that disabling "advanced partition selection" will stop this madness. Right now, I have that selected to enable support for hard drives partitioned on a mac. I'm not really sure that I need that though. I do have an HFS+ firewire drive, but there's another setting for HFS+ partitions in the kernal config, so hopefully this efi stuff is what's stopping my ipod after upgrading my kernel. I really don't want to be stuck with the default ubuntu kernel over a stupid ipod

The Error output seems to have changed by now though

$ sudo mount /mnt/ipod
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/ipod,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

$ dmesg | tail
FAT: codepage cp437 not found
FAT: utf8 is not a recommended IO charset for FAT filesystems, filesystem will be case sensitive!
Unable to load NLS charset cp437
FAT: codepage cp437 not found
Unable to load NLS charset cp850
FAT: codepage cp850 not found
Unable to load NLS charset cp850
FAT: codepage cp850 not found
Unable to load NLS charset cp850
FAT: codepage cp850 not found


(the codepage cp850 bits appeared after I followed the mini-howto posted at the address below )
