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
issue.

Patch is on the Ubuntu bug report at
http://librarian.launchpad.net/4838850/via-raid-fix.debdiff

Thanks! pitti

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