iPod Nano and SuSe

I'm trying to use an iPod Nano in Suse. When I plug it in, SuSe recognizes
it, and two folders appear in /media. One named ipod belongs to root and
has nothing in it. That is where /dev/sdd is mounted. There is another
called ipod_1 which appears to be the mountpoint for /dev/sdd1. In it is
the contents of the ipod, but with everything belonging to root. I can
access the device as a generic music player in Amarok which then treats it
like a usb disk drive. The music files carry names like fqz.mp3, rather
than the name of their contents so it isn't much use, although once in the
playlist you can see their names. They then play ok. However, I was under
the impression that you can use Amarok to sync the ipod. This won't work
in this setup. Nor will Amarok eject the iPod. I have to do that manually.
Then there is gtkpod. If given /media/ipod as the mount point, it tells me
it can't find the Ipod database. If given /media/ipod_1 as the mountpoint,
it crashes with the message segment fault before it even opens.
Is there any way to make this thing work?
