Description:

This service menu provides easy uploading of mp3, wma, and wav files to your NOMAD II, IIc, MG device from Konqueror. It also allows you to transfer files that have space(s) in their name (Normally, you cannot do that through the command line). This service menu requires the NOMAD II Linux drivers. They can be found at; http://nomadii.sourceforge.net/

*NOTE:
I have tested this service menu in KDE > 3.2 and it works fine. It will probably work in other versions too but I haven't yet tried.

I am eager to hear feed back and open to suggestions.

The Nomad II driver is dead. It has not been updated in 18 months and does not compile against the 2.6 kernel. The RPM is broken and requires lib not in my distro.

My five your old Nomad still works fine but I have to use Windows to download stuff to it. I guess it is time to retire it and get an iPod or something more modern.

I am running kernel-source-2.6 on Mandrake 10.1 and the drivers work fine. I just downloaded and installed the rpm and they work.

alien converted the rpm but it did not work, should have know it was some Red Hat/Mandrake rpm using who knows what old lib and modifications.

I guess if I dig up an old gcc and recompile my kernel with that it might work. I think it is time to bury the Nomad II the driver developers think so.

You're probably right about burying the NOMAD II. People at school make constant fun of it and about 3 out of every 5 people own an Ipod. It was a good run while it lasted though.

Now that's strange because I am running kernel-source-2.6 on Mandrake 10.1 and the drivers work fine. I just downloaded and installed the rpm and they work.
