Unhappy GNomad2


I installed GNomad2 onto my computer, and I am running Fedora Core 3. My MP3 player is a Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra, and I used to be able to run GNomad2 fine with Fedora Core 2, but it keeps crashing. Has anyone else had this problem and know the solution? I am new to Linux, so if I have to program something, detailed instructions would be greatly appreciated.

Thankyou ahead of time.

you really need to tell us more information about the crash... any errors? make sure you try running it from a terminal.

incidentally, is that a decent player in your opinion? i almost bought one today, as it's about the cheapest decent make mp3 player around....

When I run GNomad2 2.6.1 on Fedora Core 3, it just pops up a window saying

Error

The Application "gnomad2" has quit unexpectedly.

You can inform the developers of what happened to help them fix it. Or you can restart the application right now.



Then I restart it, but it just closes itself. Thats all I get.

I've run gnomad2-2.6.1-1.FC3 (and 2.6.0) from the command line, and there's no output at all.

Watching /var/log/messages, the only thing I see is when I connect the Nomad up:
Code:
Dec 29 19:39:36 server kernel: usb 1-1.4: new full speed USB device using address 24
which is expected.

I really like it - cheaper than an iPod but doesn't look as cheaply made.

I've not had any problem with the player (I've had the 30Gb Zen Xtra for about 6 months) although I did manage to break the belt clip on a subway turnstile!

I like mine aswell, I am thinking I should just go back to Fedora 2 since that gave me no trouble with this.

cool... looks like i'll be getting one of them one day...

you might want to try running the application inside of gdb, then when it crashes, you can run "bt" to see the application state when it died and the call stack. the end method might well point to an external library you can try to upgrade.

Actually funny enough, I restarted my computer but had my MP3 player plugged into the USB port so Linux detected it when it came on, and it has been working with GNomad ever since, even if you unplug it and don't have it plugged in when the computer starts up. So it's probably just some type of bug instead of a compatability issue between the old FC2 and the new FC3.

As much as I hate rebooting, I just tried it and I'm getting exactly the same problem.
Glad it worked for you ... I guess I need to keep digging.

I'm getting
gnomad2: error while loading shared libraries: libnjb.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So I tried linking thte libnjb.so.5 to the various locations where it might be looking for it and now I get, gnomad2: error while loading shared libraries: libnjb.so.5: cannot open shared object file: Error 40

Any ideas?


Oh and yes i know this is a really old thread >_<
