Apple iPod information is available from
http://www.apple.com.au/ipod/. Using USB seems to be a lot
easier than using Firewire under GNU/Linux with the iPod. Simply make
a directory /media/ipod with appropriate permissions.
and libhfsp0. Edit your
/etc/fstab file to have an entry like:
/dev/sda3 /media/ipod hfsplus users,noauto,sync,uid=1002,gid=1002 0 0
Your iPod may come up as sdb, sdc, etc., so change appropriately or
as describe in Section 61.4.
Connect your iPod to a USB 2.0 port on your computer. Then:
Now it should be working. Use gtkpod
to manage your iPod.
Remember to umount /media/ipod before disconnecting to avoid
corrupting the file system (the iPod will still say ``Do Not
Disconnect'', but as long as you've unmounted it, you should be right
to disconnect it).
The iPod volume boost application for Windows/Macintosh
(http://espen.se/) can be utilised on GNU/Linux using the
$ wajig install gnupod-tools
$ mount /media/ipod
$ cp /media/ipod/iTunes/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunes* /tmp/
$ tunes2pod -m /media/ipod/ --force
$ mktunes -m /media/ipod --volume 40
This method works quite well though 40 may even be a bit too loud. 25
seems good. There was a problem with tunes2pod and you may needed to
change the script /usr/share/perl5/GNUpod/FooBar.pm to point to
gnupod_otgsync instead of gnupod_otgsync.pl - this will probably be
fixed in a future release.
