Mount an iPhone?
I recently switched to Fedora 17 from Ubuntu and have encountered an issue regarding the ability to mount an iPhone. iPhone's no longer mount when using this distribution. This didn't happen on Ubuntu. How can I get my iPhone to mount?

Do you have the libimobiledevice package installed? I think you'll need it. If you do, make sure you the most updated version (via the updates Fedora repo).
If you already do have it installed, can you post what commands you are using to attempt to mount, and any error messages you get?

I also have an iPhone 4 and cannot mount it under Debian. I get an "Unable to mount Jack's iPhone Unhandled lockdown error (-4)" then the kernel crashes and I get a disconnected Ethernet connection notice. I have the name "Jack's iPhone" as the name of my hotspot on the iPhone. I have the libimobile1 library and a iphe.... something that is supposed to handle the iPhone as an Ethernet connection via USB port. I don't have the GUI's that is described so I'm wondering if I'm still missing something.

Check out GTK-pod. I use Android phones so I don't really know if this works well. If you do try it, let us know how it goes. I'm sure it's in your system repos.

Mike thanks for the suggestion, I will give it a try although I'm not really using like a 'song' storage or something like that. What I'm up to is using my hotspot on the iPhone 4 to go through the USB port to act like an Ethernet connection. Basically to get the machine on-line.... It's been a tough fight for something so simple!
Thanks, will get back to you...
