This patch adds a configuration setting to allow to set the speed of the thumb wheel on an Ipod. I found the original speed a bit too fast for an Ipod Nano at least. The default is still the same but three new settings (Fast, Slow and Slowest).
This task depends upon

Well, give that the first version of this was my first try of coding for Rockbox I made some errors. This new version should actually work.

I have been having errors when using the make command (trying to compile) after applying this patch; I believe I had to modify some locations in the patch to the new file locations (to make the patch apply at all); here is a bit of the error...

I hope this is helpful; I would like to try the patch out however such an error is beyond my knowledge of programing Thanks!

This patch is far out of date after the submission of the iPod wheeldriver rework end of 2007.
