I'm trying to get a 4th generation shuffle (xB867) to work on my Debian Squeeze (Crunchbang) box.

Here's the process I go through:

1.Formatted the ipod to fat32
2.run gnupod_INIT -m /media/IPOD
3.Added a test track (mp3) with gnupod_addsong
4.run mktunes (with volume +40 in case the tune was playing but silent)
5.umount /media/IPOD
6.sudo eject /dev/sdc1 (shuffle light goes green)
7.Disconnect shuffle from computer
8.Try iPod stand alone and get no tunes but hear 'use iTunes to sync iPod'

All messages report success with a warning that the mounted volume is case sensitive.
Running tunes2pod or --fixit have no effect (they work but change nothing).

Am I doing something wrong? Is it a lack of support for 4th gen shuffles? Or is it a bug?
