I read in the documentation for winpod that people had been running EphPod and Macopener wine. I have no problems with installing the programs under wine. However, it is not clear to me how to do the configuration so wine sees the scsi-disk. Does anybody have a more precise reference?
winpod converts your Mac ipod to a "Windows" one.
The Windows ipod uses FAT32 which Linux has support for (No Macopener needed) . I personally use EphPod in Wine. Just mount the ipod somewhere and configure wine to map that directory as a drive and your good to go.
Thanks for the reply, I am aware of that option and I'm seriously considering followiing that path since ephpod since so much mature than using xtunes with the ipod-plugin..
My only hesitation is whether reformating it to a Windows iPod prevents me from connecting with Macs. If so keeping it as a Mac version allows the maximal flexibility (provided that I could get MacOpener to work with Wine under Linux)
If the goal is to use Linux for your iPoding, then I would seriously go with Wine and Ephpod. For right now that is the best solution out there (or most popular). BTW...I have not tried this yet...I am waiting until iPod-on-linux comes up with a solution.
Pretty soon we'll release a GUI for the iPod that will allow you to do the same thing. It is a little bit off however, but hopefully will be finished soon.
