    Re: HOW-TO iPod with (Ubuntu) Linux

    Hi,

    I've got a small problem (I hope) which is I think just related to ipod access permissions.

    When I plug in my ipod nano it is being automounted to /media/ipod. My dmesg is as follows (only the last few lines are different from that of the howto):

    Code:
    usb-storage: device found at 2
    [4299264.353000] usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
    [4299264.354000] usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage

    [4299269.969000] FAT: utf8 is not a recommended IO charset for FAT filesystems, filesystem will be case sensitive!
    When I use gtkpod or Amarok, they both have read/write problems. they say the device is read only.

    My mtab entry for the nano is as follows:
    Code:
    /dev/sda2 /media/ipod vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,quiet,shortname=mixed,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=077,iocharset=utf8 0 0
    Furthermore, this is what ls -la gives in /media
    Code:
    drwx------  6 ruud ruud 4096 1970-01-01 01:00 ipod
    What is the nicest way to do here in order to properly automount my ipod nano for use with gtkpod? I figure I have to modify an automount setting somewhere, but where and how exactly?

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: HOW-TO iPod with (Ubuntu) Linux

    I should note that I discovered that when I format (FAT32) my ipod in Windows and then create directories using gtkpod in Ubuntu, these directories ARE created.

    Also: (probably after sync'ing) directories F00 - F19 are present, but with no content.

    So it might not be a permission issue at all, but still I don't know what to do...

    Re: HOW-TO iPod with (Ubuntu) Linux

    I just tried to sync and 40% of my playlist seem to sync fine, but then my ipod seems to be invisible to my system.

    The (auto-)mount point still exists (/media/ipod/), but I ls /media/ipod returns no directories.

    After these 40% a message like "read/write failed due to input/output error occurred" pops up for the resting 60%.

    Is it possible that the ipod goes into some strange mode during sync'ing? I tried the same on an Ubuntu laptop I have and things are the same, so I guess it is not a hardware (interrupt related) issue.

    Someone familiar with this kind of problem? (Has the nano's hold switch got to be on or off during sync'ing?)

    Re: HOW-TO iPod with (Ubuntu) Linux

    Someone still here? It's so quiet...

    It looks as if gtkpod/nano is able to upload a few files at a time when sync'ing (instead of 4 GB at once), but then again I don't know that for sure too.

    Any ideas how to solve this?

    Re: HOW-TO iPod with (Ubuntu) Linux

    I keep seeing people mentioning that you need to format your iPod in windoze or Mac. My rubbish windoze laptop CD drive has died, so I can't install the software from the CD to deal with the iPod shuffle.

    Can it be done from scratch on my Linux desktop box (the one with all the music)? How? I tried plugging it in, and all I get is the alternating amber and green error warning lights.

    Typing dmesg gives me:

    Hi, i was having this problem with breezy and dapper.

    FAT: utf8 is not a recommended IO charset for FAT filesystems, filesystem will be case sensitive! It turns out that it is a kernel issue, there are a couple of work arounds, these are mentione in the links below.

    http://gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_iPod
    http://ipodlinux.org/Mounting_on_Linux


    However.....

    In GTKPod I went into Edit --> Edit Preferences --> General.

    Then into the section Adding/Updationg/Synching. --> Encoding (IDS, files): And selected UTF8

    This seems to have fixed it. I copied over 10 gb onto my 2nd gerneration ipod without crashing.

    I hope this helps.

    Re: HOW-TO iPod with (Ubuntu) Linux

    Hi all, I'm having a problem with my ipod. Everything works under linux. I have a 3g ipod, Dapper detects is perfectly when I hook it up via usb, amarok can read and write to the ipod.

    BUT, when I boot back into windows and use iTunes with the ipod, iTunes now crashes as soon as it detects the ipod.

    This only started happening once I used amarok to write/read fromthe ipod. Has amarok fudged something on my ipod that makes it useless with iTunes now?

    I'm guessing it has something to do with this:
    *NOTE ABOUT ITUNES* - If you use gtkpod to update your iPod, gtkpod does not use the exact same method of writing the iTunesDB file that iTunes does. So, if you use your iPod with both windows and linux, you may make your iTunesDB unreadable by gtkpod.
    Anybody else have this problem/knows how to fix it? It would seriously be bad if I can't sync with iTunes in windows anymore...no more music store purchases, no more hooking up the ipod on a different computer...

    Re: HOW-TO iPod with (Ubuntu) Linux

    Has anyone been able to use gtkpod on PPC? If so are there any tricks to it? I read somewhere that .ogg files are not supported so that leaves .mp3 files. I am able to add a .mp3 file to a playlist on the iPod but when I sync the iPod it give me this message:
    Error opening '/media/ipod/iPod_Control/Music/F38/gtkpod712591.mp3' for writing (Read-only file system).
    Anyone know how to fix it?

    Re: HOW-TO iPod with (Ubuntu) Linux

    Hi,

    I have the same problem Skia_42! My ipod nano is being auto-mounted just as my USB-memorystick does. The difference is that I can write to and read from this USB-stick, but I can't write to the ipod. Very strange...

    Can it be that the embedded Operating System on the other partition of the ipod nano is preventing users from writing to the ipod?

    Anyone? Any idea? (maybe some other way of mounting you'd suggest to try?)
