I just got my first iPod, my first digital music player, and I LOVE it. I used to make fun of iPod owners and the iPod and said that it is all hype and that there are other players more worthy. Well, while that may be partly true to some degree, my iPod mini 2nd gen blue is aweome with its' aluminum Chassis.
There is no forum anywhere that I know of to discuss Linux, linux software, and the iPod. So I came here.
I have a question:
Is there any way to avoid disabling the USB bus and still be able to disconnect my iPod safely? In Windoze there is the "safely remove hardware" icon option in the system tray when you add USB "drive media", but not is my SuSE9.3.
I admit that I am a relative neophyte to linux, but I have caught the bug, and I am slowly learning it. I spend almost all my computer time in Linux, and I consider it a royal PITA to have to go into Windoze just to use iTunes and to safely remove the iPod while still booted in, so I can listen to it.
Please, if anyone has information and/or advice, I will be indebted.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.
