iTunes and Linux

Link to this post 17 Dec 09

Well, I am not new to Linux, but I was wondering did anyone know if iTunes 9 would work on Linux using Wine? I am hoping that it does, because right now I am dual booting with 7 and Ubuntu because of iTunes.
Thanks for the help,

Shane

Nevermind, I figured out that it does not work.

there are alternatives that work much better than itunes in my opinion gtkpod, amarok, banshee etc alot of the current linux media players support ipods. Personally I dispise itunes because its bloated I'd recommend at least trying another product and see what you think.

Personally, RhythmBox worked alright for me, but Exaile and Amarok are good alternatives. You can also look into RockBox for your iPod, and gtkpod can interface with both a normal iPod and a RockBoxed iPod.

I use Rythmbox for my Ipod, however I've been having issues with my Ipod Touch. There is a lot of support, but I don't think Jailbreaking works for Touch's with frimware 3.1.2. (Which is what I have.)

Anyone, find out anything new??

I actually just ditched my iPhone but everything I have was on iTunes. I found Banshee works great for me though. Worked flawlessly getting iTunes from my XP box to my linux box!
