Sometime ago I bought an iPod Shuffle. Since I have no Windows or Mac OS X boxen at home, I was relieved to find that I could initialise and manage it using gtkpod. However, I found gtkpod really hard to use.
cp newalbum*.mp3 /some/mount/point
- It assumes that your iPod is mounted automatically on /media/ipod.
- I've only tested it with the iPod Shuffle.
- It doesn't preserve any of the ID3 tags (or equivalent in other formats).
- The file type guessing is based solely on file extension.
madwifi and wpa_supplicant
madwifi and wpa_supplicant are approaching the point where they "just work" for me on my x86_64 box. I can now use wifi for several hours without crashes or WPA dropping out. WPA-PSK negotiation seems to work reliably. This is a big change from a few months ago.
Admittedly, I still have to go through this after boot:
modprobe -r ath_pci
