[maemo-users] Canola never finds any media

Recently, I have this problem too. This is because, canola's installation
was no successfully finished . This happen in the installation of
avahi-daemon (canola dependency), because he try to access /etc/shadow file,
but is not present in the n800 device. To solve this I used xterm to create
a /etc/shadow file based on /etc/passwd (see shadow file in any linux
distribution, for details) . After  creation of /etc/shadow file, you can
use the command apt-get install -f, to fix canola's installation.

Good luck,
José Luís
