Get your iphone/ipod touch working with linux gtkpod (Debian testing)
As I did never write a howto before, I hope this is good enough to understand :)
I just show the steps I did to make my ipod touch working (sync video/music...) with gtkpod on my Debian testing system as the default packages did not work for me.
Note: This howto uses packages from the unstable section of debian!
Use every package and this howto at you own risk - it worked for me but that doesn't mean it will work for you. Worst case it might destroy your ipod's database.
It may be that I had some packages preinstalled so i forgot to mention them here.
Step 1 (install prerequisites):
Instead of make / make install i used "checkinstall" to generate debian packages.
You have to completely log out (even end kde or gnome) and relogin before being able to mount as user
Remember you always have to run the ifuse mount command before starting gtkpod the first time.
Plase sync your ipod/iphone with itunes on a windows pc before using it with gtkpod.
Amarok (at least v2) does still not work with ipod/iphone after following these steps - if you get it to work, please tell me how ;)
To put your ogg files on the ipod they need to be converted to mp3 - gtkpod does this if you have installed the packages "vorbis-tools" and "lame" (found in debian-multimedia).
If you get an error 6 on ogg to mp3 converting try changing
