Using your iPod in linux
There are two main applications that you can use to manage your iPod, Amarok or gtk-pod.
Making your iPod work
I use hfsplus as the filesystem, this is the same filesystem as used by apple. if you use hfsplus you cannot use the ipod on a windows system.
the Linux kernel does not support journalling on hfsplus, which will cause you ipod to be mounted read-only. to fix this you have two options
- under OS X turn journalling of. this is done at a console usuing the command
|diskutil disableJournal volumeName|
- under linux install hfs-tools ( Available in Fedora Extras) and run
|mkfs.hfsplus -v "iPod" /dev/sdXn ( where X matches your device)|
