    Hello all,

    Since i dont have a MAC developing a mac software would be hard especially since i dont knwo Cocoa. To answer the questions:

    1. Yes ill try to make it support wifi.

    2. The Decryption of the itunes.db will be hard but not impossible.... i need to prototype it and really learn how itunes does what it does.

    3. The whole project will be opensource and will offer some new spiffy things that itunes does not offer i.e SYNC links with firefox


    I got quite a bit in this weekend and will continue to pound on it until its done, I will setup a project page for it sometime soon (when i have free time), so you guys can see the initial screenshots of the UI.

Far better solution than what iTunes provides, information on exactly how to do it is on the wiki under linux:talk.
    I followed the "guide" there - I can make gtkpod write to a new ipod db on my iphone, however I cannot make "see" the iTunes_Control directory. It only creates a new iPod_Control dir, which my iphone doesn't use...

    Has any of you worked around this?

    just ln -s the itunes control directory over. Oddly, I didn't have to do this on my phone, but had to on several others which I modded. Also, make sure you let itunes create the database first, otherwise music will show up but won't play.

    As mentioned before, there are several open source projects out there that access the iPod's tunes db. A popular Linux alternative is Amarok. gtkpod also works well for managing your tunes on the iPhone. A good How-To can be found here.

    'ln -s old/directory/path new/directory/path'

    That command creates a symbolic link under Unix, which is kind of like aliases on a mac. I use iTunes, so I can't give you the specific directory paths, but basically you want to replace old/directory/path with the existing directory and new/directory/path with whatever the application is looking for.

    Alright, I know how to use ln.
    I was asking if I should link iPod_control to iTunes_control (leaving the database name as iPodDB instead of iTunesDB) or should I symlink subdirectories instead (thus making a symbolic "copy" of the file structure, with the correct names)?

    Basically, what steps do linux users take to use gtkpod on the iphone? (I can mount my iphone with ssh, I got the latest gtkpod from SVN).

    What did you do to make gtkpod read your iphones library? (no, it doesn't "just work")
