ipod doesn't free up space
 
Hi guys,

i have found out that deleting songs from ipod doesn't free up space. I am using FC17 and gtkpod 2.1.2.

I was looking for a .Trash directory from the mount point, but can`t found it.

gtkpod doesn`t have a trash folder.

any ideas you guys!

thanks in advance

Hi:

I looked around for you and did some reading-
I read that some ipad's and ipods have a limited storage capacity.

Deleting songs should of freed up space and in your case it didn't-
I wonder if there is something being kept in a registry file on your ipod that is preventing space from being freed?
Depending on who made your ipod you may be able to find the manufacturer's website to be of some help.

If there is a way of using Fedora to install your iTunes it may be on the www.fedoraproject.org website. Sorry I don't know more; I'm still learning about Fedora and studying the kernel-

You can ask a fedora questions here:
https://ask.fedoraproject.org/questi...ipod+in+Fedora

There could be a trash folder within the ipod but I'm not sure how to check that-

If your ipod's an 'Apple' maybe otherwise I'd check in the booklet that the ipod came with.
If not try the manufacturer's website or call the 1-800 number for support.

arent all ipods manufactured by apple (foxconn at least) so i dont think they support linux. calling the 800 number will result in them telling you to buy a mac.

Not sure if all ipods are made by Apple; I don't have one-

Your right schneidz; I can see where being told to purchase a mac could come up and go over like a lead balloon-
Scratch that idea-

I did several Google searches to try to help:
How to configure ipod in fedora 17 was one but that only applied to servers, system proxy's and installation documentation.

I don't get why Fedora is not allowing hDUQUE to be able to install his/her iTunes-
You'd think that there is a work around this-
I'll continue to look; perhaps another Linux user has posted and the iTunes were successfully installed-

Anyway I'm not the expert on this as I just started reading the documentation on Fedora 17 today.

Here's 6 steps to follow but you have to install Wine to do it.
(if not installed do)

Code:

  “apt-get install wine -y” or “yum install wine -y

Here is the tutorial that one of our members here wrote to assist with the ipod:

Hope this helps

apple makes itunes which used to be mac specific software until they recently made a port of it for windows. so until they make a version of it for linux the only option would be installing it in a windows/mac-os virtual machine running in linux or running itunes in wine.

this thread lists a few alternate programs that run natively in linux:

Got it-
Didn't know about; gtkpod, rhythmbox, amorok and banshee-

If I find anything in the Fedora documentation that will be a help in regard to this I will post it.

i bit out of date so...

when i was using fedora 8 ,9,11 on my even older "nano shuffle "
rythombox can write to the nano BUT as a mass storage device using a "play list"
or
using GTK-pod to use the apple database
BUT
using apples itoons( see below) program on windows XP would WIPE EVERYTHING that was NOT put on the ipod BY apples tool
just plugging it in ( on XP ) was enough to kill off all the music that was installed on it using Fedora


itoons on wine ??????

use Windows 7 for i-toons ( yes the mis spelling in on purpose)


on fedora gtk-pod is recommended
