Help to undestand the applicability of an iPod Nano in Puppy Linux
Note: The following was copied from another area within a post in this forum. The reason for doing it is that my post was at the end of a multiple page thread & I thought it was hardly to be seen there. Sorry, if it's wrong to do that!
I've a couple of questions concerning the ipod-on-linux.
Have read part of this thread & I'm not sure if the ipod-nano was made for working in a linux environment &/or a recent distro of linux was made to include the ipod-nano as one of it's compatible hardwares. Have the impression that the latter is the true one. Before making a frugal PL installation I downloaded Floola but never have used it (neither my nano), until a few days ago when I found out that most of my music is in .mid format. Is there a way to convert a midi file to an MP3 one?
Worst than that (I guess), even more music than the midi format set mentioned above, I have music in an 'undefined' format (make a Google search for Scorch & then download something & you will see what I mean by 'undefined'). Does anybody has an idea as how to proceed? Keep in mind that I've more than one problem here:
Need an ipod nano software that work within PL;
Need a software to convert a midi file to MP3 format;
Need software to convert to MP3 a yet unidentified file?
Thanks in advanced for any help that you might provide!
PS. Have the cd for the nano but can't install the iTunes software within PL (the installer within the cd refuses to install iTunes), maybe it was conceived for Windows alone. I installed it within the Windows OS & I'm wondering if this might be a problem in any way: would it be dealt with as been in "2" separate machines (Windows & Puppy Linux --even though both OS exist within the same hardware?).
Apple does not make an itunes for Linux. I would search "use ipod nano with puppy linux". I do not know much about PL so I am of no help to you with the packages needed. A quick search and this came up http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=338363 and i am sure there is a lot more like it.
