iPods on Linux?
I have two Linux boxes at home, but no iPods. Not only do I think iPods are rather substandard in their functionality for the price (iRivers kick butt!), but since there's no iTunes for Linux there is no iPod for Linux. Or so I thought.

I ran across YamiPod today.

YamiPod is a freeware application to efficiently manage your iPod under Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. It can be run directly from your iPod and needs no installation. Take a look at the feature list to find out what it can do and feel free to suggest anything that might be missing.

Where did this come from? I'm still not the least bit inclined to purchase an iPod, but having the ability to use one with Linux would certainly be nice for some people. Anyone have a Linux box, an iPod, and the trepidation to give this thing a whirl? I'd love to know how it works.

There's a variety of linux apps for the iPod. I've never been very pleased with YamiPod, but I do like gtkpod.

There's a whole slew of other ones, they all have their upsides and downsides. One common problem is how to store data that's not part of the iTunesDB. A few try to follow a rough standard, but if you interchange programs you normally end up with a mess.

For example if you use YamiPod, then use gtkpod you get a mess.

All in all, at least ipods are usb mass storage devices. iRivers and creative's devices are MTP which makes them very hard to work with imho.

Hey Andrew,

Thanks for the info. I actually own an iRiver T10 which was an MTP device when I bought it, but is now a UMS device thanks to some clever people at Mystic River.
