Hello Folks

I have and Ipod nano 2nd black 8G, my partner in these last 7 years.
I'm a linux newbie since april/march 2012, and I'm migrating all my activities to Slackware64 13.37, almost of them is working fine and i'm very happy.

But what more upset me is the ipod, I cant sync it, load music from linux to it..... Really if I Thought to boot windows just to use itunes I become crazy! hehehahaha

follow my currently situation

I installed the Rockbox in the ipod, now it works, and it is much better than the apple's firmware, but in slackware the rw disable problem continues... The media is protected against any user, I tried every chmod variant and don't got success.

By the way now I can play chess and doom in ipod , hehehe, to put music i need the Windows.. it's a shame.. but I'll still trying
