I got the same result.  My mini worked fine, but the nano did not
(gtkpod simply seg faulted).

Is it possible that you upgraded your nano with iTunes somewhere in
there?  While I was researching my nano troubles, I found references
that it's not the newer iPods as much as the newer firmware on them.

I got around this by copying a modified SysInfo from my mini.  Here's
what my SysInfo has (put your serial number in from the back of your
iPod):

BoardHwName: iPod Q22
pszSerialNumber: XX999XXXX9X
ModelNumStr: M9436
FirewireGuid: 0x007AEC00
HddFirmwareRev: DN4ACA2A
RegionCode: LL(0x0001)
PolicyFlags: 0x00000000
buildID: 0x02308000 (2.3)
visibleBuildID: 0x01108000 (1.1)
boardHwRev: 0x00000000 (0.0 0)
boardHwSwInterfaceRev: 0x00040012 (0.0.4 18)
bootLoaderImageRev: 0x00000000 (0.0 0)
diskModeImageRev: 0x00000000 (0.0 0)
diagImageRev: 0x00000000 (0.0 0)
osImageRev: 0x00000000 (0.0 0)
iPodFamily: 0x00000003
updaterFamily: 0x00000003



Another, perhaps better (if it works) method is to use the current CVS
versions of libgpod, etc. as someone else mentioned in this thread.

Thanks,
