Hi, I'm new to linux and I have Mandrivia 2006 126.96.36.199 and need to get my iPod to work with Linux. I currently can get it to play mp3 and view my iPod. I must be able to play m4a. I really need it to controll my iPod like iTunes did. Is this that possible using amaroK or do I need to install iTunes via wine?
Well my iTunes disk must be corrupt b/c when I try to install it via Wine or my Windows partition, I get an Install Sheild error: 1268 (or something). So now I really need a Liux iTunes clone program.
I have the xine engine but how do I install the win32 codecs?
I pasted the all codec file for win32 in /usr/local/lib/codecs - how do you get xine to use them now?
Also does anyone know what to do when your iPod won't mount and is only seen as a removable hard drive?
I think its better to copy the codecs to /usr/lib/win32 because thats where most multimedia apps search for the codecs. Since you have already copied them to another location, you could probably create /usr/lib/win32 as a symlink to /usr/local/lib/codecs.
