I recently got a new 8gb ipod nano. A friend having a mac immediately
updated it to the newest firmware.
When I was home I tried to use my ipod with linux. I got the latest
libipod and gtkpod cvs checkouts (09/22) and mounted my ipod.
Here is the result of mount
/dev/sdb3 on /media/ipod type hfsplus (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
I can successfully read the directory. Unfortunately, there seems to
be some error with the permissions. When trying to save anything using
gtkpod it says
"Error opening '/media/ipod/iPod_Control/Music/F05/gtkpod433002.mp3'
for writing (Read-only file system)."
The permissions of /media/ipod are as follows:
drwxr-xr-x 1 myuser users 2 2006-09-21 09:40 Calendars
drwxr-xr-x 1 myuser users 4 2006-09-21 09:40 Contacts
drwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 7 2006-09-21 09:40 iPod_Control
drwxr-xr-x 1 myuser users 3 2006-09-21 09:40 Notes
I have no idea but I guess there is something wrong with the user and
group of the iPod_Control directory. I am running SUSE Linux 10.1 with
kernel 184.108.40.206-0.21-smp running.
Thanks in advance.

I had this problem with a Mac formatted iPod a while back. Running fsck
on it (make sure you have hfsplusutils first) fixed it. The problem is
that Mac filesystems are *really* sensitive; if you don't explicitly
eject the ipod before you unplug, it ends up in an "inconsistent" (and
read-only) state until you do a disk check on it.
