This does not work for me. What distro are you on?

I made sure gnome-volume-manager, dbus and hal are installed. But when
I launch gtkpod I get:

'/media/ipod/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesDB' does not exist. Import

In fact /media/ipod does not exist. If I create it and mount the thing
manually I get permissions errors.

How is this supposed to work? Is gnome-volume-manager supposed to
create the /media/ipod directory? Should it already exist? What are
the correct permissions?
