iPhone syncing on Linux
KVM - Virtualization software
Host - Debian 5.0
VM - Debian 5.0/Utunto 9.04
Since iTune 9 can't work properly on wine. I'm prepared to make IPhone communicating with Linux according to following document;
iPhone syncing on Linux
Abort, Retry, Hack? Blog Archive iPhone syncing on Linux
It requires following packages;
I'll install above packages on VM. However I can't find them on repo. Please advise where can I download their binary package? Otherwise I have to download their compressed tarballs.
Is there any way to convert tar.bz2 to rpm/deb so that I can install the later with dpkg?
Another question is if they are running on VM(client, NOT host), can IPhone be detected via USB connection
libusb 1.0 is available with Ubuntu Karmic.
There is an Ubuntu PPA for with Jaunty and Karmic packages for usbmux, libiphone, and ifuse.
gvfs with afc support you might have to build from upstream.

Plugin the IPhone 3GS via USB cord.
satimis@vz0:~$ sudo usbmuxd

Now it mounts the IPhone 3GS.

All of them are directories/folders

I suppose all of them are empty directories
satimis@vz0:~$ ls /media/iphone/Photos/
satimis@vz0:~$ ls /media/iphone/Podcasts/
satimis@vz0:~$ ls /media/iphone/Purchases/
All of them without output
satimis@vz0:~$ ls /media/iphone/Recordings/
satimis@vz0:~$ ls /media/iphone/iTunes_Control/Ringtones/
No GUI. I think I can upload music/photo files on the IPhone.
What shall I do next? To copy music files to the IPhone on Console? .mp3 file? Or other file format?
Please advise. TIA
Free calls ?
Anyone know of any apps that dont charge you money for calls, that would be great great. there was some for windows but i dont know about linux
I have lot of .mp3 files on my database. Additionally I have many .flv video files download on YouTube, etc. I have no problem to convert the latter to .mp3 format.
