Hi All..

Ipod management for Linux users, GNUPOD makes it very very easy... :-), I was using previously iTunes when i was unaware of of gnupod, Though i use linux for each work, i got new tool 'GnuPod' to manage my ipod. Installation & Using gnupod is simple. Follow the instruction to install & configure your new ipod management tool...

For Debian & Ubuntu Users:

Installation Of Gnu POd :

Don't forget to install this package, If its installed not a problem, it not do it.

4. Plug in your Ipod, Mount it.

mount /dev/usbdisk /mount_point

5. If want you can take backup of it.

6. After taking backup, Remove data from mounted partition
