    iTunes/mp4 converter


    My box runs Fedora core 3. I've been trying to install the iPod driver and iTunes on it; I installed WINE, which works with most other applications, but not for the iPod software. I went digging through the CD testing all the .exe files, most of them ended with errors. The last one I tried said to update my Windows software to 2000 with Sevice Pack 4 or XP.

    So, I'm wondering if there's a version of WINE that supports XP applications, a third party iPod driver/file converter made for Linux, or a program for Linux which converts sound files to mp4 format. Suggestions?

    XP apps: CrossOver Office (supports iTunes). It should work but it does cost $.

    If you just want iPod support on linux, gtkPod paired with a little kernel hacking can get that working just fine.

    The playing and manipulating of songs purchased from Apples music store are a little more dicey.

    Should help you with DRM'ed music from the apple music store.

    is a nice explination, but the legality of the whole thing is obviously under question, but until apple issues a cease and desist, your fine.

    A nice google gives you this site

    which should help you get an iPod working on linux fine (although if you run gnome 2.10 the automount will handle it, just open gtkpod and it should work!)
