View Full Version : [ubuntu] iPod on linux
October 10th, 2008, 12:35 AM
I have been using linux for a while. I just got an iPod and I heard linux supported it. Well the problem is that I get Amarok configured to the iPod but it says that its lockfile or something like that. Is there anything I can do to get it to work?

Newer ipods are more tricky then older ones I will warn you, I think most newer ipods need to be jailbreaked before you could use them.

SunnyRabbiera is right, you need to see which model you have. My method below works on my 5th/6th generation classic
delete: /media/iPod/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesLock (or something similar)
rm -vi /media/iPod/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesLock
where iPod is the name of your iPod (mine is Sonic's iPod xD)
the v means to tell you what you're doing and i means prompt for confirmation
If you need to be root:
sudo rm -vi /media/iPod/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesLock

There is no iTunes Lock. There is iTunesControll but I cant delete it since its a read only. Also I tried gtkpod and it has the same problem
