    Ipod Nano 6G solution but I need it explaining pls..

    Can some learned person explain to me in simple terms what the below means. I am an experienced Ubuntu guy but not able to quite comprehend what this means.
    I've downloaded the libhashab.so md5sum = bb7180cb0c9cee2a605a5a276672913e (555149 octects)
    And that's as far as I can get.
    I too am trying to somehow get music onto my Nano 6G using Ubuntu Presise Penguin and I came across this post.

    Thx,
    -keevill-

    _______________________


    I've successfully synced my iPod Nano 6G with gtkpod on Ubuntu 11.10.
    Here's a brief summary of what I've done to get this running:

    - replace Ubuntu's libgpod 0.8.0 with 0.8.2. I may put packages into
    my PPA at a later point for easier installation, although precise
    already has the correct recent version available.

    - place the infamous libhashab.so/libhashab64.so into /usr/lib/libgpod/
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 543K 2012-01-21 19:34 libhashab.so
    md5sum (32 bit): bb7180cb0c9cee2a605a5a276672913e
    (Google is your friend.)

    - after Ubuntu automounts the iPod, force it to read-write mode using
    sudo mount -o remount,rw,force <mountpoint>

    - take ownership of all files & directories
    sudo chown -R <your_user_name>: <mountpoint>

    - run gtkpod

    - sync, be happy

    "place the infamous libhashab.so/libhashab64.so into /usr/lib/libgpod/"

    Looks like you copy it to /usr/lib/libgpod/ (as root of course, also re-boot)

    I would make a copy of any existing libhashab.so files first so you can put them back.

    You may have to find more online posts about doing this, and I hope you understand that this is just to get "gtkpod" working on a older Ubuntu so maybe you want Ubuntu 12.04 anyway since it would have updates and newer drivers.

    whoops, just realised I'm running 11.10 .
    Does that make any difference to your reply?
    Do I use sudo nano or sudo gedit to edit the libgpod file ?
    Thx,

    Unhappy Re: Ipod Nano 6G solution but I need it explaining pls..

    Sorry for reviving this thread but I just purchased an ipod nano 6g,
    I've followed the guide and downloaded the libhashab.so file but I realized that there is no /usr/lib/libgpod folder.

    So I created a new folder /usr/lib/libgpod adjusted the necessary permissions and managed to transfer successfully my first album into my ipod.

    However, upon reconnection, an error popped up indicating a hash error, rendering the ipod unusable until I do a restore from itunes.

    So how should I go about solving this?

    Edit: I am using precise 12.04 by the way


    Many thanks and regards,
    Monk

    I figured out to use it in Banshee in ubuntu 12.04

    1. Install libgpod4_0.8.2 and libgpod-common_0.8.2 from http://franck78.ath.cx/

    2. Downloaded libhashab.so and in root mode place it in /usr/lib/libgpod and put all permisions to read and write.

    That's it
