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.

The problem is that the track filter doesn't work. Usually when I click onto an album, an artist or whatever in the track filter, the playlist tracks should only show the files which belong to what's selected in the track filter. And every action like deleting, editing or the like only applied to the displayed and selected files. This was the behaviour in gtkpod 2.1.2 on Arch Linux.
Now with gtkpod 2.1.3 on Salix selecting anything in the track filter doesn't do anything. Even if I click onto an album, the playlist tracks keep the same and show every file. The actions like deleting or editing is also applied to every file on the iPod.
Does anyone know if this is a packaging bug in SBo, an upstream bug, a missing dependency or another distro related issue?
I've already installed every dependency that I could find in the PKGBUILD for Arch Linux and the ebuild for Gentoo. Unfortunately currently I can't test it on another distribution.
But I guess you haven't tested it on Slackware64. I now tried it again with a full install of Slackware 14.0 and Slackware64 14.0. The issue appears only on Slackware64. On Slackware the track filter works as expected.
I don't have a native x86_64 machines, only in Virtual Machines, so i can't really test on that environment
what happened if you tried to run the application in console? Does it produce any error or message?
Actually, I don't know if that's the right patch. I just referred to this thread on upstream's mailing list, and installed gtkpod from the git repo. I guess they will soon release version 2.1.4 anyway from what Paul has written. But, if you like, let's try it, I can still reinstall the git version if the patch doesn't work.
