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.
Has any of you worked around this?
(I'm referring to http://iphone.fiveforty.net/wiki/index.php/Talk:Linux)
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.
Sorry, but ln -s *what* to *where*?
I'm confused now...
any solution if we are not on linux?
'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.
"Are you into S&M?"
"Well...I'm a Red Sox fan. Does that count?"
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")
