I suppose here that you have got a 2.6.X kernel and that your ipod is using the firewire port

1st step: compile your kernel
Choose the followings options for the device drivers
Device Drivers
SCSI device support --->
Cochez si ce n'est déja fait :
<*> SCSI device support
[*] legacy /proc/scsi/ support
-- SCSI support type (disk, tape, CD-ROM)
<*> SCSI disk support

Don't forget to take the SCSI disk support!

Next:
Device Drivers
IEEE 1394 (FireWire) support
<M> IEEE 1394 (FireWire) support
<M> OHCI-1394 support
<M> SBP-2 support (Harddisks etc.)


Compile your kernel......

2nd step: load your modules

Code:

# modprobe ohci1394



Now , look at dmesg, you must have something like this:

Code:

#dmesg | grep 94
 Detected 1594.981 MHz processor.
 ohci1394: $Rev: 1172 $ Ben Collins <bcollins@debian.org>
 ohci1394: fw-host0: OHCI-1394 1.0 (PCI): IRQ=[11]  MMIO=[e0002800-e0002fff]  Max Packet=[2048]
 ieee1394: Host added: ID:BUS[0-00:1023]  GUID[001106000008d58d]


Load sbp2
Code:
 
 # modprobe sbp2


Liinux can detect your ipod:
Code:
 
#dmesg


you see:
Code:

sda: test WP failed, assume Write Enabled
  sda: asking for cache data failed
  sda: assuming drive cache: write through
  sda: sda1 sda2
  Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
  Attached scsi generic sg1 at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0,  type 0


There are 2 partitions :

sda1 : 40 Mo with the firmware ;
sda2 : your data partitions and your Music.

3rd step: mount your ipod

Code:

#mkdir /mnt/ipod
#mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod



4th step: Get a software for your ipod
Code:

#emerge gtkpod


I hope that this tutorial will help you.
Good luck

Yesss, I know ;)
I just tried to do remember, with my incredibly ridiculous belgian humour, that we are here on a french-speaking forum ;)
Your post is very intresting but perhaps posted on the wrong place ?

[EDIT]Bon, à voir tes autres messages, tu connais parfaitement le français, ce qui m'étonne d'autant plus ...
Désolé si je parais un peu sectaire mais je crois que la langue française mérite qu'on la défende, même si la France s'en fout !

Qu'on le pende en place publique ! :lol:

@ipower : I've got a question for you ! When I unmount the ipod, it's still marked as "do not disconnect"... is that normal ?

After umount , try to "rmmod" the modules.
it's not very important if you see, don't disconnect, but don't forget to umount your device before you unplugg it, you can loose some datas...

thanks for this nifty little howto. helped me out alot :)

just some addition:
all of you want to have a small kernel and so you just compiled the minimum into it, but make sure you got fat+vfat compiled as modules!

Code:
DOS/FAT/NT Filesystems
    <M> DOS FAT fs support
    <M> VFAT (Windows-95) fs support


so you never get an vfat isnt supported by kernel error when trying to mount ya baby ;)

peace

And so I see I forgot to answer you... :oops:
Anyway it works w/o "rmmod"-ing anything ;) and gtkpod cleanly mount & unmount the ipod by itself so, you cares :D

Euh elle est un peu stupide la situation là, des français qui se parlent entre eux en anglais sur le forum français ? Y a pas comme un problème dans l'énoncé ?

I only did French GCSE and got a C in that so not too good on the old French but i think you said something about it being a bit stupid because people are speaking English in a French forum.
Still, it was only a comment really, not a request.
Sorry if I offended anyone

Au revoir

C'est vrai que si un moderateur passe dans le coin, ca serait une bonne idée de déplacer ce thread sur le forum anglophone, quite de recopier/retranscrire ce dernier sur le forum français par la suite !

C'est juste une idée comme ça ...

I'm sorry too, I didn't would offend you, I was just focusing on the situation where french people are speaking between us in english in a french forum... i've no problem with you and the fact you speak english here as you are not able to speak french.
I think that the best way is too duplicate this thread in the suitable forum.

Je ne traduis pas en français, je pense que mon anglais bas niveau se comprend facilement :-)
