Ipod Shuffle help


Hi all .

I know its been probably asked before but i cant seem to find what im looking for.I did a little bit of reading and this is what i can gather corect me if i am wrong. I got a Ipod Shuffle for xmas . Problem is that i run all my media on the linux box now from what i can gather is this


1. ipod can be mounted on the usb but will only work as a storage medium

2. i guest that amarok will suport ipod "not sure if i have to flash the kernel or not "

3. gnupod works but its a 3 tesp thing create mount point , format the ipod, install softwair to talk to the ipod . "not even sure if it supports the ipod shuffle"


Can somehone shed some light on this for me please . I am running suse 10.0 the novel edidion

system specks

KDE 3.4.2 LEVEL B

RELESE 2.6.13-15.7 -DEFALUT

look into GTKPod, it syncs w/ an iPod. It uses GTK(obviously), so you may need to install some additional libraries, but it should work. Gnupod shouldn't need to format the iPod, as it(I believe) is already formateed as FAT32. GTKPod is probably the best way to go, you just have to set your iPod mount point, and then bring your music into GTKPod.

first of all, why are you compiling it? Does SuSe not have binary's(rpms) for it?

secondly
in order to compile something the steps are
Code:
$ ./configure
$ make
# make install
not
Code:
$ ./configure
$ make install
$ ./install
It does look as though when you ran
Code:
#make install
it compiled the library, and installed it
I'm not sure as to where you'd want it linked to, because I don't know SuSe that well.

The output from when you compiled the library that pertains to this is
Quote:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Libraries have been installed in:
/usr/local/lib

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and

it looks as though there are SuSe rpms for it(http://www.gtkpod.org/downloads.html) This may be easier than compiling it. It will also insure that the libraries get linked to the right place.
