Nomad Jukebox

I'm trying to get my nomad jukebox working in linux. When i connect it through usb linux doesn't seem to recognise it at all?

I run 'lsusb' before the jukebox has been connected and then again after but it hasn't got any new entries. When i try to run gnomad2 i get this output:
gnomad2: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have installed libnjb, libusb and id3lib but still the jukebox does not work.

Does anyone know how i can get it working?

worked on my machine...are you sure your kernel has the appropriate things either built in or as modules? I guess you need something like usb-storage, uhci-hcd and/or ohci-hcd. I'm not sure whether they are in the kernel, compiled as modules or if you have them at all, but if they're modules you can check whether they're loaded like this:

lsmod | grep usb

if you didn't get them, try

modprobe -l | grep usb
(you get a list of modules, see the filenames then just modprobe some like these):
modprobe usb-storage
modprobe uhci-hcd

then try again....and even if Gnomad2 wouldn't work, see if (after those modprobes) you get some info of the usb being plugged in.

my first (potentially) helpful linux post ;)

Quick solution for mandrake 10 users: install the rpm intended for redhat here

I know its a risk installing packages from other distributions but I was tearing my hair out with this problem. Thought I'd take the risk and pleased to say it works fine for me

WARNING i have little linux know-how and don't know if this might screw up other things.

Transferring files right now using gnomad2 and the redhat rpm libnjb driver.
