Randomness - iPod 30GB(5g) and linux

Posted 01-08-2006 at 11:15 PM by microsoft/linux

Ok, so I got a 30 GB iPod for christmas, and I have some decent sucess with linux. Below is how I've gotten it working with debian etch.

This guy apparently is a debian developer, and has made a patch for gtkpod to allow transfer of video. This is extremely useful. I use handbrake for video conversion.

First, I made a new directory to mount it on
# mkdir /mnt/ipod
I then added this to my fstab
/dev/sda2       /mnt/ipod
