Just so I know - your MuVo thingy is it a USB device? It is anything more (to Linux) than a mass storage device?
Does the software you use with it have a config file? The rest of this email is wrtten vwnting off as if the sotware does, so if it hasn't, there's no need to read any further...
I have posted about USB before:
when I upgraded from 8.2 -> 9.0 a USB printer that was working, stopped
when I upgraded from 9.0 -> 9.1 it started working again
however a USB scanner that was working in 9.0 stopped working in 9.1 (I await 9.2)
both the device drivers, have config files, of course. For the scanner I did receive considerable advice from one person on this list but to no avail.
I've made my 2 pence suggestion before, to some derision, but I'll suggest again, that I think that some clerical or similar errors are creeping in between upgrades (not surprising in one sense this is a big impressive distro)
For example plustek.conf suggests that "device" should look like dev/usbscanner but now scanners are organised into /dev/usb/scanner0 (, , etc)
the plustek file had a line
which couldn't pick up the scanner (even though it had been detected by sane-find-scanner and during boot)
naturally I punted with replacing device auto with usb/scanner0 etc but to no avail
USB printers are similarly organised (and in 9.0 the command line example is the SUSE helpfile on usb printers worked for dev/usbprinter but not for dev/usb/printer)

You could dual boot to a minimal install of suse 9.0 and use that for the MuVo. A bit extreme though.
Personally I can't understand why it isn't working. What happens when you plug it in? Nothing or something odd?

You need to run YOU and update hotplug to the .22 version. That will add teh HOTPLUG_USE_SUBFS entry.
Having said that, that version broke a couple of devices for me so I went back to the DVD version. Use with care :-)
Well, I updated hotplug to version .22 and still no luck. I am starting to think that SuSE 9.1 just doesn't like this MuVo 64. I am just about ready to give up on this mp3 player and just go ahead and buy one that works with SuSE. It's either that or downgrade to 9.0 but me thinks that's stupid just for the sake of an mp3 player. But, on the other hand, it would be cheaper than a new mp3 player.
What do you guys think??
