Description Martin Pitt 2006-12-12 09:52:56 UTC
Due to Apple's interesting way of initializing the storage on their new iPod
Nano series, the vfat partition is detected as a Via RAID volume, which clearly
is not right.. This in turn means that nothing happens when plugging it in,
since gnome-volume-manager won't touch raid members.

The patch adds an extra checksum check to the detection code and hence fixes the

Patch is on the Ubuntu bug report at

Thanks! pitti

Since the code moved to udev now, and the current udev version has the patch
applied, I close this now. Thank you!
